In Chicago Even The Dead Vote

“Chicago’s Tuesday mayoral election follows a tradition of campaigns and elections in the city featuring odd occurrences, including violence.

The Chicago Tribune said the campaign leading up to Tuesday’s election for mayor and aldermen, which is notable for front-runner Rahm Emanuel being briefly removed from the ballot and another candidate being accused of smoking crack cocaine, was relatively tame in comparison to some historic elections in the city.”

Many Americans vote only in presidential elections, and they blow off mayoral elections.

But residents of Chicago are very patriotic, they vote early and the vote often. The average citizen of Chicago votes at least a couple of times in the same election.

Even the dead do their patriotic duty, and cast their ballots.

I hope that the dead and the living will rally around Rahm Emanuel, he deserves to be the next mayor of Chicago.
