Humboldt all huhu over write-in question
The Hawaiian pidgin language is full of descriptive words, such as “huhu,” which describes a state of agitated anger.
The North Coast blogs have been all huhu since before the supervisor elections over the campaign's hot-button issue: Johanna Rodoni's shadow candidacy for 2nd District county supervisor.
When the TS reported that it was “possible” Johanna could be a November write-in it was enough to throw gas on the flaming huhu. How could the “Substandard” be so stupid? Don't they know the law? A write-in by Johanna Rodoni? What outrageous incompetence to suggest anything of the kind. Sub-sub-sub!”
That's why online political opinion gives you the most for your entertainment dollar -- or even more, since it costs nothing
TS County: Rodoni can be write-in
The TS is vindicated.
TS Nothing appears to prevent Johanna Rodoni as write-in
The HuHu: County elections department says Johanna can file for a write-in candidacy - but the law probably says otherwise
OH GOD, Eric, you're not taking leads from "Jane Doe!"
In my opinion, Johanna cannot run in November
Johanna can run in November
