It’s Official: McClusky Out

Despite the e-mails asking for supporters to come to court and blustery demands that city bureaucrats hand over petitions, the courtroom was calm as John Munger offered a rather tame and ultimately unsuccessful defense of Shaun McClusky’s candidacy.

It is hard to see how McClusky would be allowed to run a write-in effort at this point (the judge indicated he doesn’t think McClusky can legally mount such a run). Frankly, given how badly his petitioning went, it’s hard to imagine him capable of putting together a decent write-in campaign or why the mahouts would clamor for him to do so.
