Zoos and fools

It’s been one of those long weeks – see, we’re all escaping the zoo, hoping for a fast getaway into the weekend...

The Idaho Secretary of State’s office didn’t have such a great week either. They (and Idaho) made the national news, because they somehow allowed the name of an inmate who is incarcerated in a Texas prison to be on the ballot for May’s primary election as a Democratic presidential candidate. So, the few Democrats in Idaho will be able to vote for Hillary, Obama, -- or Keith Judd.

Judd apparently sent checks to 14 states to pay registration fees so he could "run" for presidential office. Most of the states sent the checks back, but not Idaho, which is the only state where he will be listed on the ballot.

"We got conned," said Secretary of State Ben Ysursa.

There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee...that says, fool me once, shame on...shame on you. Fool can't get fooled again.
