We had a city council race on Tuesday. The pro-development candidates swept the last election due to some really shortsighted decisions by retiring members of the previous council. This time around, the slow growth candidates are ahead with some absentee and provisional ballots still to be counted. The pro-development candidates are sending out mail reassuring their supporters that they'll have a lawyer present during the counting of the ballots to protect their interests.
Apparently, they think the slow growth group that struggled to raise funds and mobilize volunteers in the shadows of the national race had enough of both to organize voter fraud. Or maybe they're just emulating their heroes on the national scene.
