If it were true that Mr Morris stopped campaigning two weeks ago, then someone please tell me why I received a phone call tonight from his camp begging for my vote? It was a recorded message and I am about 98% positive the voice on the other end was that of WGTY's morning DJ.

Sorry I just dont buy his story of being out of the race and quite frankly, the fact that he didnt formally withdraw from the race on time sounds a little fishy too.

If you read the article correctly you would realize that whoever filed the complaint against Mr. Morris, filed it after the date of when it needed to be filed in order for him to drop out of the race in time for his name to not appear on the ballot. So..nothing fishy on his part. It's fishy as to who filed the complaint?????

And...if his votes will be counted...KUDOS to his camp if they made the calls last night. In the paper it says that they were just informed that his votes would count yesterday, so even if he hasn't campaigned for the past two weeks...it sounds like it was fair game for Mr. Morris's camp to make the calls last evening. I'm 98% positive that it was a smart move on their part!

If people would have allowed for a clean race and let all candidates be judged without trying to sling people....this never would have been an issue.

I'd say everything about this race has been fishy....makes me wonder about all the other candidates...who's been the slinger????? Who really is the confident, honest candidate that we should be voting for? Guess we'll see what the public thinks!

Can't wait to see the results tonight!

The slinger is Mark Beauchat.
The Hatch Act does not apply to incumbents seeking re-election. It specifically states that in the Act. He is the only one that is bulletproof from the Hatch Act.
This doesn't take rocket science to figure it out.
Also, he was very defensive about it in the last articles quote.

Pretty obvious isn't it.
Its sad that even local candidates can't play fair.
I hope Beauchat isn't on the ticket in November.
