If You're Going To Be A Loser, You Might As Well Be A Sore Loser
No big surprise: Chris Bell has lost another political race.
The perpetual candidate lost a runoff yesterday to former judge Joan Huffman for a State Senate seat, with Huffman taking a comfortable 56 percent of the vote.
If you were expecting the Democratic Party of Texas to take it well, be a gracious loser and move on, you'd be wrong.
Here's their official statement on the race:
Party chairman Boyd Ritchie said:
Joan Huffman and her fellow partisans had to use every trick in the book to hold this seat. From propping up a bogus candidate, to limiting early voting hours and providing no early voting locations in Democratic parts of the district, to scheduling the election during the busy holiday season, Republicans used every tool available to suppress turnout to their advantage.
