Dead man wins mayor's race in small Tennessee town


TRACY CITY, Tenn. — A dead man has been elected mayor of Tracy City, Tenn. Carl Robin Geary died suddenly a few weeks ago. But he received 268 votes anyway in Tuesday's nonpartisan election, beating out incumbent Barbara Brock with 85 votes in the two-candidate race. An election administrator, Donna Basham, said Wednesday she wouldn't speculate on why Geary won posthumously but noted his death had been widely reported at the time in this corner of southeastern Tennessee. She says the city council will now have to appoint a mayor to the four-year term. Brock had been appointed mayor 16 months ago when the previous mayor died. She says she thought she had done a good job but added voters wanted a return to the past.


I would have posted this in the US Political Madness forum, but it's not likely to generate a good partisan cat fight...unless, of course, dead/living can be considered a new form of partisanship.

So this woman (Brock) was appointed mayor when the previous one died, and just weeks before an election her opposition suddenly dies too? There just has to be a conspiracy in there somewhere.

Either this town is in a coma, or they really don't want this woman to be their mayor.
