Abstract

"Politics and Other Mistakes" piece on a May 27 vote by the Portland City Council that gave incumbent councilor Philip Dawson's May 4 victory at the polls to challenger Ethan Strimling based on 35 previously disqualified ballots. The piece focuses on two obscure Maine Supreme Court decisions from the 1920s that were cited by the pro-Strimling alliance to justify its conduct.
