Want to run an election?

The Hamilton County Board of Elections is searching for a new leader to guide it through what is expected to be the busiest election year in history.

The current director, Pam Swafford, will retire in May after a long career with the organization. Now, the two Democratic members of the board are seeking applicants to fill her seat.

"Someone will have to step in here and learn a whole heck of a lot very quickly," said Tim Burke, a member of the Board of Elections.

Great! So there will be an incompotent Dem running operations. When there are long lines and no ballots will Brunner & Congressman Conyers be calling for hearings for those Dems responsible?

Anon 8:37,

Pam Swafford is about the whitest white lady anyone's ever likely to meet, and Portune and Pepper won't have the slightest involvement in hiring her successor. Carl, or whoever approves comments, I understand you want a free flow of ideas, but maybe there ought to be some sort of civil service exam required of people so idiotic comments like that don't make the cut.

And anon 9:06, you obviously also have no idea how the BoE works, or else you would know that every single position there has a counterpart in the opposite party.
John Williams is Swafford's counterpart, and he's served as Director before, himself. Very little will change when Swafford is replaced.

As the main target of bold boy's ire, I will champion his right to express a diverse point of view.

This is something you progressive/socialists have forgotten.

What more evidence do we need to shut down the entire Republican Party as a corrupt organization under the RICO statutes? How many more criminals can we be subjected to in one organization before we see the light and realize that the entire organization is corrupt to the core?

Are any comment worse than the Useless Idiot's? This lonely, pathetic excuse for a human being sits by himself, blogging day and night , posting under different names. He is a sad character, with no life to speak of. Blogging is all that he has in life.

Pity the fool.

It's because you are a loser with nothing else to do but blog all day at your deadend job, and that you can't afford a computer or an internet connection at home. That's why.

Awwww, the poor little Idiot got his feelings hurt. What's the matter, is your deadend job that allows you to endlessly blog the day away getting to you today? Or is the fact that you can't afford a computer at home getting to you? Well don't worry, you can make yourself feel better by accusing someone of being a Commie. Better Dead Than Red, eh Idiot?

The truth hurts, doesn't it, Idiot?

"you can't afford a computer at home getting to you?"

I almost never drag the HP out of the brief-case when I come home to my hovel. You are confusing me once again to that fat,bloated, sack of bold protoplasm.

But alas; I prefer to spend my time serenading the most beautiful woman in the world with my '52 Telecaster. You are not as important.

Senator's Husband Admits Paying for Sex

By NATASHA ROBINSON and KEN THOMAS
Associated Press Writers

TROY, Mich. (AP) -- When Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and Louisiana Sen. David Vitter were named in sex scandals, the lawmakers largely shunned the public eye before discussing allegations of marital infidelities.

But Sen. Debbie Stabenow mostly kept to her schedule Wednesday, hours after news broke that her husband told authorities he had a $150 encounter with a prostitute.

With the scrutiny directed at her spouse, Stabenow vowed to work through what she described as a family matter. She participated in meetings with fellow Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee, listened to a briefing on health information technology and met with constituents.

"I have to say we are tough in Michigan and resilient and working hard to bring new opportunities and new industries," Stabenow said in a speech on the Senate floor about Michigan's struggling economy.

Some of her words could have described her own struggle.

Her husband, Thomas Athans, 46, was stopped by police who were investigating prostitution at the hotel, according to a police report obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press under the state Freedom of Information Act.

Athans, co-founder of the liberal TalkUSA Radio network, apologized in a statement issued by his attorney and said he "fully cooperated with law enforcement. My family and I are dealing with this matter in a personal and private way."
