Well, That's One Way to Get Elected


From a Denver Post report on a GOP candidate running for the Colorado legislature:

Republican Tom Janich of Brighton, running to unseat Democratic Rep. Judy Solano, has been arrested five times, including once for resisting arrest.

"It's my record. I've got to own up to it," he said.

But the 48-year-old said his run-ins with the law happened when he was younger, and he now has a record of public service.

"Heck, if everyone in Adams County who ever drank one too many or smoked a joint would vote for me, I'd win in a landslide," Janich said.

Sounds like a winning coalition in most places if you can get out the vote.
