    Default Rich Whitey Running for Office

    If wasn't Chicago I would just find it amusing.

    Candidate's Name Misspelled as 'Rich Whitey' on Black-District Ballots
    Poor Illinois Green Party gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney, the victim of an extremely cartoonish "error:" His name has been misspelled as "Rich Whitey" on voting machines in nearly two dozen Chicago wards, half of them "predominantly African-American."

    The most prudent, responsible course of action with this story, we believe, is to ignore forthcoming facts, ask zero questions, and just run with the fun and easy conspiracy theory.

    The Illinois governor's race could be very close. And Democratic operatives everywhere tend to be at their most ruthless when trying to destroy, or remove from the ballot entirely, vote-stealing Green party candidates in state races. Illinois has the most corrupt politics in America, and Chicago is the most corrupt political city in Illinois. "Rich Whitey." Black-majority districts. C'mon, now. And they say they can't do anything to fix this misspelling before Election Day! This is so obviously a conspiracy, maybe.

    Rich Whitney knows what's up!

    The snafu, however, has Whitney contemplating legal action to force a fix.

    "I don't want to be identified as 'Whitey.' If this is happening in primarily African-American wards, that's an even bigger concern," Whitney told the Chicago Sun-Times. "I don't know if this is machine politics at play or why this happened."

    See? Now the Democrat can call Whitney a crazy conspiratorial hippie nutjob, for making such wild accusations. All part of the plan.

    Or maybe some city worker just forgot to type "n" one time.

    Meh, the conspiracy theory is better.

    Makes one wonder if the ballot "mistake" is payback for this headline?
