Best Attempt at Ballot-Stuffing

Rory Lewis fans

Staff Pick

Well, you can't say this local musician’s admirers aren't dedicated. After deluging the CL offices with often profane and usually incomprehensible e-mails earlier this year, the faithful then turned their attention to voting for him in just about every category imaginable in the BOC poll — Best Local Athlete, Best Local Charity, Best Museum, even Local Zero and Biggest Waste of Tax Money. Of course, CL has been putting out a Best of Charlotte issue for close to two decades now, so it wasn't hard — just time-consuming — for us to spot the duplicate (and therefore ineligible) submissions. Wow, if these people would use all that spare time to do something constructive (see our Best Activist winners for ideas), there’s no telling what they might accomplish!
