Dead Man Elected Mayor in Tennesse Town

The AP reported this morning that the people of Tracy City, TN elected Carl Robin Dreary as their new mayor. The only issue is that Mr. Dreary has been deceased for a few weeks now.  Carl Robin Dreary beat out Barbra Brock 268 votes  to 85 to win the mayorship despite his widely publicised death a few weeks earlier.  Barbra Brock had been the towns interim-Mayor for the past 16 months after the previous Mayor died.  I know Barbra has to be embarrassed to lose too a deceased opponent in a two candidate race, but I don’t know if I would want to be mayor of Tracy City considering the track record of the last two mayors.
