Re: [ga] vote appeal
You clearly feel wronged by the process here, but I'm honestly a
little unsure why. As far as the "ten endorsements" issue is concerned,
the fact is that you *were* included on the ballot, so even if bad
decisions were made, they didn't end up harming you. And the fact is that
the rules *weren't* changed after I decided to drop out -- the watchdog
committee decided to continue the election under the old rules. The only
new thing that happened was that voters were sent duplicate copies of
their ballots in case they wanted to change their votes; the ability to
make a change was a right voters already had under the old rules.
You made a good showing, but not enough people voted for you, and
there was no set of rules under which you could have been deemed to have
won -- Danny and Patrick each had more first-place votes than you, more
second-place votes, and more third-place votes. There's no shame in
fighting the good fight but not getting enough votes to win.
