Re: “Who Deserves to Be Disqualified?

While I would personally like very much for some tragedy to befall the entire Mell family ala the O'Doyles (perhaps while vacationing with the Daleys and Burkes), I don't see what good it does to remove a candidate from the ballot over a technicality such as what is described above. That said, the apparent similarities of the offense and the very different results of these two cases is upsetting (if not altogether unexpected). No good is served by Mr. Raoul running unopposed in the primary and, short of some as yet unproven and intentional fraud on the part of Mr. Hofeld, there seems to be no compelling reason to remove him from the ballot (and save your 'he withdrew' statements -- he withdrew because of the challenge).

Finally, to the posters Mr. Moore & Mr. Allen, may I ask you how you justify your actions? What do you tell your children about life? I was always told that if I tried my best and played by the rules things would work out. Do you tell yours, 'don't worry, Daddy's done favors all over town -- you'll be fine' Just curious.
