OpenCDA Takes Aim At English Again

At, Bill McCrory is taking aim at one of his favorite pincushions, Dan of the County, by blaming him for that flap in the Senate District 3 race, involving incumbent Mike Jorgenson and challenger Steve Vick. Seems Vick lost his Idaho voting privileges when he moved to Montana and then didn't get them back, as he should have done, when he moved back to Kootenai County and tried to re-register. Seems Idaho law cancels voting rights when you register elsewhere. However, when Vick attempted to re-register, the clerk's office said he was already registered and didn't need to do so again. The clerk's office hadn't been notified of Vick's move to Montana. Vick voted in the 2008 primary and general elections without problems. Now, Jorgenson is claiming he isn't qualified to be a candidate for Idaho Legislature. And McCrory is blaming English for not being omniscient.

Question: Who do you think is to blame for this snafu?
