IDK...

I don't know, but it seems the election results have left me with more doubts than the number of Chin's in a Chinese phonebook. How on Earth do you have a 4-way race and no run-off? How is that possible? I am even interested in paying the $5 and getting copies of the election results. I have emails showing tepid-at-best support for Swamp in three aforementioned houses, I have the emails of two top level cultural leaders supporting Action, I have people in all three parties, and last of all, I have serious reservations about any candidate getting 50+% in this sort of an election. I congratulate both Arturo & Swamp, however, I hope that a serious re-count is underway. Yes...I'm sorry to say it, but I did say re-count.

I don't think a re-count would necessarily give us a new winner, however, I am curious to see the final #'s so if anyone would be so kind as to mail me those, I'd be very grateful. Nonetheless, I find it extremely difficult that Swamp pulled this one w/o a run-off.

Congratulations Arturo & both Swamp & Action candidates. Congratulations to Nina for making a stand! Congratulations to Bruce & PANTS for being fringe at a time of what seems to be cookie-cutter politics.

both fear and deals are great motivators for people on the fence. this was a shitty, disorganized campaign, however.

unless swamp brought in tons of people last minute there is no way these results are correct.

I don't doubt the numbers. Here's why. Disappointed, surprised, but not disbelieving.

Greeks got the 4200 average. Whats the big surprise.

The 'big surprise' isn't the 4,200avg, it's that TWO Greeks ran and having that 4200-divided and still managing to secure 60%+ is very fishy.

I don't see how you didn't see this coming. Action and Nina did literally no real campaigning. I was out there for the last two weeks and Nina's people were out there probably for like three hours each day of the election. KKG has never had any weight, all the cabinet positions were already appointed anyway. What would she be able to promise anyone? Boyles delievered on his promises and the Greeks stayed loyal.
