Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Two unsuccessful candidates for Bullock Co Alabama commissioner have requested that the state Attorney General investigate absentee vote irregularities in the June 3 election. Both candidates won by large margins at the polls. In both cases the candidates lost after an unusual number of absentee ballots were cast and the results were just the opposite. One of the winning candidates admitted that he and his family "helped" Bullock County residents apply for absentee ballots, but he claimed it was not done to "break any laws." One has to wonder how much money changed hands from candidate to voter. ...
