Election Limbo Day 30: Whaddya Know, it’s S. Joe!

The Deputy Chief results have been certified, and S. Joe Crittenden is the man. Like we talked about yesterday, it was really pretty close, 53% to 47%, but it looks like a landslide compared to the Principal Chief’s race.

Another couple of interesting notes about Crittenden's win:  Soap got about 1300 fewer votes than he did before, and Crittenden got several hundred more.  But, Soap got about 47% of the vote both times.

Both Soap and Crittenden were pretty classy in their statements to the media.  Maybe this is a sign things will get a little saner moving forward.
