|"Splitting the vote"|
Well folks, the 'word on the street' is that the VBMs are pouring in, and the "exchange rate" in this low-turnout election is $35 per ballot. A knowledgeable source tells GA:
"700 vbm are in and they are splitting their vote".That number is at odds with alleged claims of one "Parents for Change" candidate. According to another source:
("Parents for Change" candidate) said they ("Education for All Children" slate) already have 1000 VBM...but he/she is MAD because Franks not paying if they use their third vote for him/her.... he's only paying ONLY Peter & Fran....No vote for you!!! LOL He/She claims he/she has someone willing to testify to the harvest because Frank wouldn't pay unless that person erased their vote for (Parents for Change" candidate). Going rate for this low turnout election is $35...so 35 x 1000....$35,000.Holy cow! $35,000! (Well, that is less cash than spent on getting Timmy 17% of the vote in 2013. )
If that's right, a veritable tsunami of cash is washing through both "Parents for Change" and "Education for All Children" BoE slates.
"Parents for Change" has spent big bucks for posters, boots on the ground to plaster them high on utility poles around town, and yesterday... doorknockers! But WHOSE bucks?
Wait for the ELECs.
