The Salt Lake County Democratic Party is currently in the process of accepting names for consideration for Sen. Scott McCoy’s replacement in the wake of his resignation. So far, only one name is listed on their website, hopefully as a joke: Mark E. Towner. Yes, that Mark Towner, the one of spamming, legal threats, and general pest fame. (As a side note, his most recent legal threat against me resulted in, unsurprisingly, total inaction.) I know the Democratic Party has to accept any application that meets their minimum (and I do mean minimum) requirements, but it’s no less embarrassing than Superdell getting on the Libertarian ticket.
