Lincoln County, West Virginia, is a poor place whose chief export is Chuck Yeager. What it lacks in money, Lincoln County adds in entertainment. Its elections are liars poker among the Democratic Party factions. There are too few Republicans to matter, and so it is the Democratic Party primaries where the cheating occurs. For 14 years, Democratic County Assessor Jerry Weaver and Democratic Circuit Clerk Greg Stowers fixed elections. The feds caught them. They went to prison. Jerry Weaver got out and decided to run for sheriff. He figured since the current sheriff Democrat Jerry Bowman and his buddy, Democratic County Clerk Donald Whitten, are about to go to the pokey for trying to fix the 2010 election (they failed) his crew could back in office.
Jerry Weaver would have gotten away with it too, if not for those pesky people in Charleston. Now he is dropping out.
From the Charleston Daily Mail:
"Controversial candidate Jerry Weaver has withdrawn from the Lincoln County Sheriffs race, the Daily Mail confirmed Thursday afternoon. Weaver, 62, pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to buy votes in 2005.
"As part of the plea, he confessed to taking between $500 and $5,000 from then-Circuit Clerk Greg Stowers to buy votes during every election between 1990 and 2004. He spent one year in a federal penitentiary and was on probation for three years following his release.
"Officials in the Lincoln County Clerks office said Weaver turned in his candidate withdrawal form at 9:35 a.m."

.....and therein lies the problem.
How else can Democrats win elections? They have been buying votes with “walking around money” for decades.
...and this was just “in-house” Rat doings. One year at Club Fed for a decade and a half, at least, of vote fraud......(sigh)
Out and right back in business. Typical liberal
Buying votes with the consent of the people!
Don’t forget the cartons of Newport 100’s that are as good as cash in certain Democrat strongholds.
