"Election Director Gone Wild"

Rumor has it that Brad Nelson, Elections Director of Pima County, Arizona, is Sherril Huff's first choice for Superintendent of Elections here in King County.

1. Think I'd prefer the person who was asking the questions?

"In Honor of the 44th President of the United States, Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream has issued a new flavor, " Barocky Road ."

Barocky Road is a blend of half Vanilla, half Chocolate, and surrounded by Nuts and Flakes. The Vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denies an ingredient.

The Nuts and Flakes are all very bitter and hard to swallow.

The Cost is $100.00 per scoop. When purchased, it will be presented to you in a large beautiful cone, but then the Ice Cream is taken away and given to the person in line behind you. Thus you are left with an empty wallet, no change, holding an empty cone,with no hope of getting any Ice Cream.

Aren't you feeling stimulated?"

2. Oh, great. Yet another elections official that will be oh-so-responsive to the public's concerns.

Lifelong bureaucrat, no doubt. Give him a window to work at the DMV.

5. @3

Brad Nelson an "angry, arrogant, snotty, liberal?" If that were the case, why would the Pima County administrator -- a Republican -- be defending him so strongly?

Also, Nelson is being taken to task in Arizona by mostly liberal and progresive blogs. A quick google search would have revelaed that, something you obviously didn't do. Guess it was just easier to call him a liberal, with no proof as such, huh?

6. Regardless of party affiliation, or political leanings, or support from any number of distinguished personages, a person who cannot keep his cool under fire should not be in the #2 position in the KC Elections department.

This clip was taken in February 2006, during a relatively slow period on the elections calendar. How will Mr. Nelson perform in the midst of a presidential election, when the top officials are working 70-100 hours per week?

7. His evasions and refusal to engage with the questions are all too reminiscent of other unelected wise-guy functionaries. This is NOT a public servant. He's a threat to due process, who will do things his way and be damned to the rest of us. Sherril Huff had better look farther.
