The votes are in...

...and my FIL didn't get re-elected. This sucks on many levels. But, he when you're a democrat in a republican county in a republican state up against a rich republican- you've got a tough row to hoe. So they're putting their house up for sale and he's looking for a new job. Hopefully they won't have to move too far. He just can't practice law in his county since he was a judge there for so long. Boo. He's employed til January and has a ton of vacation to take so at least he'll get to chill out for the holidays. Once he's completely out of office I'll be able to tell you the story of the mom who left her kid with a babysitter who happened to be a 200 pound bear cub! Well, that's pretty much the story. The kid was fine- a miracle since he was only 2 years old. My FIL sentenced the mom to jail time, the bear was released back to the wild, and all was well. Until some crazy people started up flack saying my FIL didn't respect families since he jailed the mom. And those people got to vote. Boo!
