She was Miss Florida for just six days.

The ballot counter at the event, which was held in front of 2,000 spectators in St. Petersburg, didn't see that one of the five judges had changed his mind, writing a new line up on the left-hand side of his ballot.

The one they took it away from looks to have much grace.

What a terrible mix up for both actually. The brunette looks

like a youthful Marie Osmond doll :)

The story in the at link has a few interesting bits of info that add a little more to the story...

Her Godfather is the late Bill McBride, and his wife is Alex Sink, Democrat who ran for Florida Governor in 2010 and lost by a slim 1%, and then lost a special election for the US House in 2013...

had been a vote count error

In layman's terms, it was fixed.

Grace was good, but didn't hold a candle to my 5-year old granddaughter....

Wow, I picked the real winner, before I saw the caption. I should be a judge.

The first winner, who wasn’t actually the winner because Floridians can’t count... has some pretty interesting relations near the top of the Democrat ladder...
