Dead man wins NC County Board seat

No one bothered to tell the voters. While the Democratic Party officials said that they didn’t know the candidate had passed on to a better place, apparently County elections officials knew.
In any case, the dead man won the seat in the Union County’s Soil and Water Conservation Board by 12,000 votes.
Of course, there’s some funny things going on here. You figure that if you are running a campaign and there’s a committee that is helping you get the position that they would have constant contact with you. So how is it that the campaign to get this guy voted in, never bothered to tell the Democratic Party? Hrm. Truly strange.
