How much more Place 3 race can we take?

"Hello, this is your neighbor Lisa …"

Ugh. I'm so over the vitriol in Place 3, I'm outsourcing this one to the Austinist.

But here's a frightening prospect: say Ken Weiss manages to peel 5% away solely based on the fact he's neither Randi Shade or Jennifer Kim – and the ladies stagger to the finish line with around 48% of the vote each. What does that mean? Runoff, and another month of this madness.
