Dead Mayors Society

Here is a eyebrow raising story from the website. 
The mayor of a small village in north eastern Romania won
re-election in municipal voting over the weekend...despite
dying soon after the polls opened! Word spread of the 
incumbent's death due to liver disease, but his constituents
deemed that the dead mayor was still superior to his live
opponent. (That is kind of embarrassing for that guy if you
think about it!)  A voter even stated " I know he died, but I
don't want change." In the end, however, elections authorities
gave the post to the runner up; the deceased's political party
are now calling for new elections. Oh well, I am sure if that
does occur, the citizens will pick the best man for the job - 
dead or alive!
