Voters Elect Size 10 Shoe

To Local School Board

shoe runs for office, wins

(Los Angeles) - In a local election held last week to fill a vacancy on the Los Angeles school board, a size 10 shoe received the most votes and today was declared the winner of the election.

The politically moderate shoe received more than 14,000 write-in votes and soundly defeated the ultra-liberal candidate, Lotta Spending.

The shoe apparently echoed voter's frustration with the poor California school system, with the campaign slogan, "Education in Los Angeles is a tax-and-spend disaster. It's time to put our foot down".

The slogan of Miss Spending was, "Forget results, we're just going to spend more money".

When asked about running for a higher office in the future the victorious shoe replied, "I don't make long range plans. I'm a shoe; I take it one step at a time".

The above headline and story is not true. It was made up, by the author, solely as comedy, with no intent to harm or offend. Any of it which turns out to be true, in whole or in part, is purely coincidental ... and would be even funnier.
