The Marin Independent Journal is trying to do the best it can in this Internet Age. That means putting content online and maybe allowing for a reader poll on some topic of the day.
Last week, IJ editor/writer Brad Breithaupt wrote a piece about the sprawling 3rd Senate District involving “incumbent Senator Carole Migden and her two challengers, Assemblyman Mark Leno and former [A]ssemblyman Joe Nation.”
Readers were allowed to cast their vote for whomever they favored until someone at the IJ cancelled it. Why? Check it:
“Due to suspected ballot-box stuffing, results of the poll will not appear. You dirty rascals!”
Appears is if more than one person repeatedly voted for a particular candidate and, so much so, the results got all screwy. Apparently, “cookies” were involved.
Now, who would do such a thing? (If only Marin County had its own Matier and Ross to get to the bottom of this!)
Can’t we all get along?
