Lamppost Legislator

RECEIVED Thu., June 8, 2017

Dear Editor,
    Democrats could nominate a lamppost in state District 46 and still win the seat. Last year, that's basically what we did when we sent the invisible Dawnna Dukes back to the Lege once again ["Lege Lines: Vincent Harding's Hill," News, June 9]. (Heck, at least a lamppost wouldn’t lie to its constituents.) If she’s nominated for yet another useless term next year, I’ll be casting the first Republican vote of my life in the general election. I doubt I’m alone in that.
