What I would like to know is why we are giving this kind of money away in the first place?
I believe the public would have been better served if they didn't chase a drunk driver at 100 mph across 3 towns. They already had his license number and description. Sure he may have gotten into an accident anyway but they increased the odds considerably by chasing him.
The posted list was how it was given to the press. I believe the Sec of State received one with the full names. IMO voting shouldn't be a last minute thing. If you want to vote you shouldn't complain about having to register before hand.
