Lady, don’t tell me how to vote
It’s election day, and I don’t want to feed any conspiracy theories like the douche lords running the Star‘s Prime Buzz blog. But here’s my voting experience on the west side of downtown at a seniors’ building where little old ladies sell baked goodies and make sure you get your “I voted” sticker before you leave.
Around 8:30, I walked over to the polling place. In the yard were signs for Sen. Jolie Justus and Jackson County Legislator Henry Rizzo. I didn’t bust out my tape measure, but I’m guessing they were 25 feet from the building’s door — as Missouri law requires. I wasn’t about to call bullshit, even if it bordered on illegal.
