“Rowdy Rod” Jetton Loses……Again!

May 20th, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

Political consultant (not a lobbyist) Rod Jetton’s client Bonnie Sue Cooper has lost for a second time in a special election held yesterday in Clay County.

Liberty Tribune:

In the Nov. 4, 2008, election, Larson beat Cooper by 2,021 votes, 24,099 to 22,078 votes. However, several hours after the polls opened, it was discovered that the ballot in at least one precinct did not contain the names of Republican candidate Cooper and Democrat incumbent Larson. Instead, the ballot contained the names of the eastern district candidates.

Cooper then filed a lawsuit, calling for a new election. Larson said even if Cooper had gotten every single vote that was miscast, she would still have lost the race.

“It’s a sad day when Mrs. Cooper can tell 46,000 that their votes didn’t count,” Larson said. “A fraction of that number will probably go out and vote this time. It may have enough interest to draw 4,600 voters — 10 percent of what we had in November.”
