“Nyet” to a redo of clerk-recorder’s race

Our clerk’s-recorders race is long over, but the losing candidate — Jason Tedder — supposedly has found a friend who is willing to pay for a recount of the race, according to The Union. He is Randy Economy, a conservative talk show host from the Coachella Valley — 550 miles away in Southern California.

Economy also had been part of a failed effort to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom (as well as being a Trump campaign volunteer). A profile of Economy in Mother Jones is here.

Here’s an excerpt from the Mother Jones article: “A white man in his early 60s, often in suit and tie, Economy (yes, his real name) could pass for any conservative talking head if it weren’t for his signature eye patch, first donned after a stroke cost him his right eye. Replaced by glasses in his daily life, it’s still essential to his image: ‘He wears an eye patch but can spot fake news a mile away, like a superhero pirate,’ an announcer booms in the bombastic intro to his Saturday morning show on KABC, the Los Angeles–based conservative station that also hosts the Ben Shapiro Show.”

Let it go!
