Saved by the beard



My home phone messages are forwarded to my e-mail account as audio attachments. Checking my e-mail I discovered a message from a lawyer with the New Hampshire Attorney General's office. That couldn't be good, I thought.

Using my cell phone I got in touch with the office. They were following up on on an old complaint on voter irregularity. Okay . . .

Someone identified my dad as possibly doing something inappropriate leading up to the last election. Dad, however, was in Florida the whole time. The lawyer heard that was the case and I was able to confirm it.

Here's where it gets even more personal. Dad was identified from an old newspaper photo. The lawyer thought that I, being his son, might fit the bill. However, dad is bald and clean shaven. I've a pony tail and a beard. There is no way I could be mistaken for him. That pretty much settled it. He thanked me and said it looks like he'll be closing out the case.

Still seemed pretty weird to me.

    2. You're kidding, right?!? More stringent voting laws are being put in place to disenfranchise non-white voters, and you write racist crap like this??? What planet are you on?!?

      Gorges is welcome to his opinion. At least he puts his name on it.

  4. Sixbears,

    Very interesting. Be careful!

    I hope you kept this attorney's name and noted the date and time he called for future reference.
