I thought I had heard the last of LaShana Boose.
You know, the Gantt-Warren faction's invisible candidate who was narrowly defeated by the notorious Molly Clifford for the northwest district city council seat. By 42 votes.
When the absentee ballots were counted, Clifford's margin of victory grew to 66 votes. Not particularly outstanding, but sufficient unto the day.
That should have been that. The Gantt-Warren faction should have learned from their mistakes and put this one behind them.
But no. They are incapable of learning anything.
Boose's incompetent handlers decided that there should be a public examination of all the votes for the northwest city council seat. In her name, they are petitioning the State Supreme Court for an expanded audit of the voting machines that were used.
Boose was certainly not intelligent enough to do it herself, or able to tell her handlers to leave her in peace.
According to Rochester's City Newspaper, the petition reads: "the discrepancy between the 42-vote lead on September 10, 2015, and the 66-vote lead on September 14, 2015, justifies an expanded audit."
Which, like everything else involving Boose, is bullshit. All it's doing is make the lot of them look like sore losers and pests. The only way to stick it to sore losers is to ignore them. The only way to get rid of pests is to swat them.
That will come when Mayor Warren runs for re-election against Clifford in 2017. That will be an endless source of mirth for Rochesterians, since both factions will throw away the rule book.
Neither side ever abided by it, anyway.
For now, this petition will probably get thrown out of court, providing yet another opportunity for Boose and her handlers to humiliate themselves. They enjoy feeling oppressed, and who can deny them their perverted pleasures?
When I heard about their petition, I laughed so hard I almost pissed myself.
Probably, so did Clifford.
She has nothing to fear from the Gantt-Warren faction ever again.
