Election mockery

Dear Editor:What an amazing country we live in. Twenty-two thousand people voted in a district attorney during a legitimate election which included public discussions, a primary and a general election; and a group of folks voted out this district attorney with less than 7,000 votes after 11 months of harassment.If this happened in Iraq, the press would be crying bloody murder and then some. But in the Roaring Fork Valley, it is perfectly OK – democracy in action!I think there are a lot of people who should be hanging their heads in shame instead of celebrating. This only makes a mockery of an election no matter what you might think of the person in question. The people who involved themselves in this travesty should make a New Year’s resolution that they will stop picking on people. I have learned in my 74 1/2 years that what goes around, comes around.Marlis LaursooGlenwood Springs
