Better dead than red

Or pink. A town in Romania re-elects their dead Mayor.

BUCHAREST (Reuters) – The residents of a Romanian village knowingly voted in a dead man as their mayor in Sunday’s municipal election, preferring him to his living opponent.

Neculai Ivascu, 57, who ran the village for almost two decades, died from liver disease just after voting began — but still won the election by a margin of 23 votes.

Of course we had a similar experience in Missouri a few years ago. Now it will have to be seen if Ivascu’s wife wants to take his office.
