Election delays Florida style.
A suicidal squirrel caused delays for early voters when it knocked out power for about 800 customers, including the Indian River County Library and Courthouse.
Elections officials say early voting was slowed – but not stopped – at the library on Thursday. Voters were still able to cast their ballots by flashlight.
Officials say a squirrel leaped from a tree onto a power line, causing a fire that tripped an electrical switch, knocking out a power line feeding a section of Vero Beach.
The dead squirrel was found lying on the ground.
Early voting continued as usual after power was restored. It was out for about an hour and a half.
I wonder if anyone will sue the squirrel’s estate claiming they were disenfranchised. Don’t you just love the Sunshine State?
