Almost 1,000 write-in votes for Sheboygan County DA race

by

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - Elections wouldn’t be elections if somebody didn’t write in Mickey Mouse or some other character.

But in Sheboygan County, almost 1,000 people wrote-in somebody’s name against District Attorney Joe DeCecco, who was unopposed last week.

The Sheboygan Press said over 2,500 write-ins were entered. The choices included Perry Mason, the famous defense lawyer who would have had to jump on the other side had he been elected the D-A. Rock star Ted Nugent – who’s an outspoken Republican gun advocate in his spare time – got votes for president, Congress, and district attorney among others.

Elvis and Bob Dylan got votes, as did T-V and movie stars Brad Pitt, Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, and others. Past and present political leaders were written in – and so were a lot of the Green Bay Packers.

DeCecco has been an outspoken critic on some criminal justice issues – and he figures that some of the write-ins held that against him. He also thought some people wanted to make a statement without wasting a write-in on somebody who was contested on the ballot.
