Smile a little smile for me, Nosemarie!

GW223H140 copyIn keeping with his little tradition, Mitch Berg voted for his cat as a write in opponent to one of the judges running unopposed in Ramsey County:

nosemarie the cart

Touching, really. But not too smart.

You see, Minn. Stat. sec. 204C.22, subd. 13 provides as follows:

Identifying ballot. If a ballot is marked by distinguishing characteristics in a manner making it evident that the voter intended to identify the ballot, the entire ballot is defective.

So, Mitch: 1) voted for a cat (not even a person, much less a resident of Ramsey County), 2) writes about in his blog, and 3) admits he did it to identify his ballot.

Democratic recount watchers in Mitch’s precinct, you know what to do.

Note: Nosemarie is not pictured. She maybe cute as a button; I don’t know.

I guess the cat is a resident of Ramsey County; just not human.

Ah, Mitchie-Poo.  A better exemplar of "garbage in, garbage out" cannot be found. 

I'd feel sorry for him if his mission didn't seem as if it was to figure out a way to get a solid-platinum meal ticket from his RPM masters by screwing over as many people as possible, preferably non-rich, non-white and non-male.
