In a few hours I’ll early-vote in Houston City Council runoff elections. In one at-large seat I’ll vote for someone I actually admire. In another at-large seat, I’ll vote for someone I actively dislike, a person who commits personal offenses with such frequency that it’s a wonder he/she is still in politics. But that person at least votes my side of many issues more often than her/his opponent probably would, so I’ll hold my nose and do it.
So much for my notion of never voting for the “lesser evil” again… at least this candidate is not really evil, just obnoxious.
