A Saturday morning “huh”?
 
How can filing for a precinct committee position be “unintentional”? Easy.
 
You unintentionally go to the County Building and unintentionally visit the Clerk’s office.
 
You unintentionally ask for the papers so you can unintentionally be placed on the ballot.
 
You unintentionally complete and sign the registration papers.
 
You unintentionally tell two witnesses while working at the polls on the election day you didn’t know you were on the ballot.
 
Conclusion:
 
“Both (political) parties on the board believed her signatures matched and they had no issue with it,” Arnold said. “Her signature looked the same.”
 
Arnold added that his office would not conduct an investigation of the matter.
 
Results:
 
Fant who was an intentional candidate lost to Burkhart the chosen 214 Democrat who ran for the position unintentionally
This is crazy.

Don’t call any witnesses, instead, ask the unintentional candidate about her unintentional signature.

You might be thinking “Big deal. It’s only a precinct committee position.”  It’s a big enough deal that a former Democrat Chairperson and his sister removed a precinct candidate from the ballot.  Phil Nichols resigned his position, and his sister was the only person charged.  The candidate, of course, lost because he wasn’t on the ballot.

It is important to have Democrat precinct committee people who are on board with the local Democrat Headquarters leadership (elected and non-elected).  Because should an elected official be removed from office, death or resignation Headquarters needs to be assured the precinct committee members will vote for the leadership’s choice.

The party is notorious for election shenanigans and it seems they have been given another free pass.  And while we have the city council president complaining about the State taking away the people’s right to vote for school board candidates, the Delaware County Democrat party would be the last group to be genuinely concerned about your vote.

Please be mindful when you go to the polls in  November.

    […] Earlier Muncie Politics wrote about the unintentional candidate for a position as a Democrat precinct committee member.  Although, no elected officials, not the County Clerk Mike King or the County Prosecutor Jeff Arnold and neither of the political party chairs felt the need to pursue how the unintentional candidate was able to beat the intentional candidate.  Score 1 for the local Democrat Headquarters.  How to unintentionally win a race […]
