Dewey . . . uh, Ashe Defeats Barnard

The Burlington Free Press  is reporting that Tim Ashe did in fact win a Senate seat yesterday. The Freeps story, all five sentences,  says that an "incorrect number" in one ward's vote count had put Denise Barnard of Richmond ahead of Ashe. But the Burlington City Councilor was notified today that the count had been corrected and that he had won the sixth Senate seat. More to come on this story, no doubt.

Denise, you've got some time, how about frosting my hair?

Once again, Burlington has performed badly in counting votes. How could a thousand vote mistake be uncovered by a candidate (from that ward?) the next day?? Totally unacceptable, but seemingly the accepted norm in Burlington. There should be a full investigation.
