Hardin off the ballot in Milwaukee school board race

It's likely talk radio and bloggers won't have Charlene Hardin to kick around anymore. Barring some sort of challenge or a long-shot write-in campaign, Hardin is out of the race for re-election. She fell nine signatures short on her nomination papers.

I have not spoken with Mike Mathias yet, but he's gotta be thinking, "Well, there goes the talk radio vote." (Just kidding.)

Hardin's failure means the race will be between liberal blogger (and friend of this blog) Mike Mathias, substitute teacher Gloria Gaston, and retired county employee Annie Woodward.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Hardin's ballot problems stem from gathering some of her signatures outside her district. Which begs the question, why would anyone outside her district want her to be elected?
