2009 Election Day Irregularites?

Guest post by the Hawthorne Hawkman, youtube video from "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"

Already this morning, I was told of one questionable activity. A facebook group called "Northside Infoexchange" (this is a closed group, by the way, and I can't even search for it from my profile. Contrast that to the exchange of information that occurs here, where the vast majority of comments are approved.) reportedly posted incorrect accounts about the documentation standards for utility bills needed in order to legitimately register to vote. It is unknown whether this was done in association with any particular campaign.

JNS readers: If you see any voting irregularities, you are first asked to report them to the officials at the polling place and/or 311. Then feel free to post them in the comment section.

Anyone know the story behind Joey Lombard of the "Is Awesome" party? I ALMOST marked him my second choice (for humor's sake) until I realized he could be a Nazi for all I know...

You can read about him in this City Pages article and the link to the Jon Tevlin column in the ST. If he is a nazi instead of a ballot-comic he hid it from them.

A ballot is no joking matter.

Kenya Mcknight showed up at North Reg. Library trying to vouch for a kid so he could vote for her (presumably). She was asked to leave by the election judge and did, but not before accosting the judge with the typical blather (portraying herself as a victim and denouncing the "disrespectful way she's being treated (even though her presence at the polling place is a violation of law and a true offense to the voting public)). She said she'd be back. We'll see.

@Anon 213 - Kenya and her dread-headed buddy made their rounds to all the polling places - no word of them trying to register anywhere else but they sure did get around to each one and shake peoples hands and smile alot! Oh, and Mayoral candidate James Everett was in tow as well.

Some election judges need to get a back bone and stop being so Minnesota-nice!!!

Oh well, breaking rules didn't get her elected just like it didn't get her endorsed either.
