a little off topic but funny (Dems are goofballs too)

NEW YORK A candidate for a county board in North Carolina, who was still appearing in newspaper ads the weekend before the Nov. 7 election, earned an easy victory, gaining 12,000 votes -- despite being dead for a month.
Union County elections officials knew about his death, but did not inform voters, even though the newspaper ads -- and editorial endorsements -- continued.

"We are instructed that it's not our job to do that," said Shirley Secrest, elections director.

The late Sam Duncan was the top vote-getter Tuesday for two seats as supervisor on Union County's Soil and Water Conservation board. He was running for re-election as his four-year term expired.

The Democratic Party distributed literature backing Duncan near the polls on election day. Democratic Party officials said they didn't know Duncan had died when they placed the ads and printed the literature.

Former sheriff Frank McGuirt said he had helped Duncan knock out a board chairman who had served for many years. "I was shocked to know that poor Sam was gone," McGuirt said. "I guess I had just missed that obituary."

An appointment will now fill his seat.
