Y’all remember Clare Morris, don’t you? She’s our correspondent who gave us the inside reports on Mark Sanford’s political comeback several years back.
Well, I ran into Clare this morning, and she notified me that she had done a crazy thing: Applied to join the Richland County Election Commission. Making her one of the 100-plus to do so.
I told her how crazy it was. Apparently, many others had told her, too.
But I paid her homage as well. Somebody has to run for it, if it’s ever to be fixed.
I wished her luck, if she was sure she wanted to sacrifice herself in this way.
I’m not sure anyone’s going to be elected to it today. Lynn Teague reported this a short while ago:
Harpootlian begins Richland delegation meeting on Richland Election candidates by noting the absence of a quorum. Members present so far are Chairman Bales and representatives Harpootlian, Rose, Ballentine, Garvin.
