Pickins' must have been slim 'cause the people of the 44th District elected Tea Party Republican, Joe Knilans...even though he didn't live in the district.
Much ado was made about his residency. He couldn't sell his house, he was living in his brother's basement. The basement was ruled uninhabitable...you get the picture. He won anyway.
The DPW have filed charges with the State Election Board. All this seems quite procédure normale d'exploitation to the Siren. However an email this morning from the DPW revealed a fact about this fiasco the Siren did not know:
On election day in November, Joe Knilans did not vote for himself, he voted in the 45th District! Yes, a guy running for the Assembly in the 44th District charged with false residency voted in his old (real) district on the election day that he ultimately won.
Someone should check the water out there.
