And so it is done.
An election board Friday certified results from a recall election that removes a Republican state lawmaker from office.
Rep. Paul Scott of Grand Blanc was removed from the Legislature by 233 votes out of more than 24,000 ballots cast in a Nov. 8 election. The Board of State Canvassers certified the results in a meeting at the state Capitol.
Republicans say they won’t challenge the outcome and instead will focus on the special election to replace Scott, scheduled for Feb. 28.
Good riddance, Mr. Scott.
By the way, Scott was removed by a slender 233 vote margin. Think voting doesn’t matter and that your vote doesn’t count? Think again.
