Pre-Election Dimbulb Award

And the Dimmy goes to...... Norman Alton. Mr. Alton not only committed the unfortunately common, but politically unpardonable sin of stealing an opponent's yard signs (he works for Ms. Moyer and stole Mr. Renaut's signs), he was indiscreet enough to have done it in front of a member of the City's Ethics Commission, former Mayor Richard Hillman. And then, he lied to Ms. Moyer when pressed about it, eventually cracking and telling her the truth.

Ms. Moyer has decided to let Mr. Alton stay on as a volunteer, which seems to me, an error in judgement. He's embarassed the campaign, broken the law, and lied to the candidate. Sounds like a strike-out.
