South Miami Election Followup: "Most Signs" Doesn't Guarantee Win
Well everyone, everything I know about political science was thrown out the window this morning by the election results. Eager Brian Beasley took Marie-Birts Cooper's seat despite superior signage. Moreover, Velma Palmer, who appeared to only have a pickup truck with one big banner tied to the back, won by 24 votes.
Mayor Feliu, however, kept his seat with a sizable margin and lots and lots of signs. So all is not lost, sign manufacturers. We still know that you play a crucial role in making us all vote for whoever has the most money. -- Calvin Godfrey
