Democratic Incumbent Couldn't Run on Party Ticket Because He Didn't Sign His Own Petition

Michael Heagerty was already well known locally as the incumbent Syracuse Common Councilor.  Now that he won't be running for re-election as a Democrat, he is perhaps a little better known.

Mr. Heagerty fell short one signature to run for re-election as the Democratic nominee for his current position.  However, had he signed his own name on the petition then he would have met the quota.

On Wednesday evening, a reporter broke the news to Heagerty that he didn't sign. "I didn't sign my own petition? You've got to be kidding me," he said.

Welcome to the internet. If I was to screw up to the point where it was concidered newsworthy I would expect snarky comments to be made as well. How do you expect people to react to this? Had these comments not already been here, would your comment have been different?

People for some reason found this interesting to post on here, so I just tossed the first this that came to mind on here as I usualy browse the posts. I just wonder why we are hearing about this story now since this article is a month old.

So basically the jist of this article is "Let's all point and laugh." :/

On a side note, can you guys get over this notion that politician are always some sort of evil, corrupt, being who just isn't as pure as your moral self?

There are plenty of politicians who make it to even the higher levels of government who have a strong sense of morality and values. It's just you only really hear about the bad ones who get caught doing something wrong.

The fact is we are no different from politicians. Some of us are corrupt, some of us are not.
