What's going on, Albuquerque?
But you can...
Well when I was growing up in Albuquerque in the forties and fifties,individuals who had been dead for decades voted in some northern counties. Rio Arriba was probably the worst for downright voter fraud. My grandma always said that it didn't matter who one voted for in Bernalillo County,the real election was held in the basement of the old courthouse.
When I was working at the local newspaper, when it was a cooperative part of the vote compilation, a journalist working the pool said he called to get a final precinct in Rio Arriba, and asked the person on the other end "how many more votes do you have?" The alleged reply was "How many do you need?" Nice, busy, colorful photo, with a message and a New Mexiambience.
Funny story, I suspect true. Thanks!
I've been trying to remember the name of the long time political boss[re: hack] in Rio Arriba county. Was it Emilio Naranajo? . Your man won yesterday Dee. Congradulations.
Yes, he did win, but no connection to Rio Arriba's political boss!
