Better Dead Than Red?

1:00 PM -- The AP reports on a county commissioner's race in South Dakota where voters cast their ballots for a woman who had been dead for two months:

Democrat Marie Steichen, of Woonsocket, got 100 votes, defeating incumbent Republican Merlin Feistner, of Woonsocket, who had 64 votes.

Jerauld County Auditor Cindy Peterson... said voters knew Steichen had died.

"They just had a chance to make a change, and we respect their opinion."


Not a lot going on in South Dakota apparently.
