Dead ex-felon on the lam

You would hope that someone in Mayor Fenty's office saw the article and called off the search. A DC agency has been hunting for a dead man. His death has allegedly been confirmed. Still, the agency is searching for him.

There may be a perfectly reasonable bureaucratic explanation for the search, I do realize that...

many priceless quotes in the article, the family is horrified...

But things could always be worse:

* He could cast a vote in the 2010 and 2012 elections. I always hear that an election could come down to a single vote...would be terrible if the dead man decided who would be in office.

* He could be on the payroll in Maryland ("Another state audit this week found significant financial troubles in the Baltimore City public school system -- including wage overpayments in some cases to deceased employees.").

If I were feeling really mean then I would set up a blog with posts from the guy talking about his success in evading the agency reps chasing him...

But I don't kick a dead man when he is on the loose...
