Profiles in "Following Orders": Mary Potter Summa

Old pict of Summa
Mary Potter Summa, the chair of the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections who is proud to be no fan of Early Voting and who presided over cutting Early Voting hours in Mecklenburg for the upcoming elections, is a former staffer to Senator Jesse Helms and was "known for her active role in the development and writing of the Republican Party Platforms of 1988 and 1992" (according to Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum, which gave "Mrs. Summa" a "Homemaker's Award" in 1992). Hattip to Rob Schofield over at NC Policy Watch.

For a more recent photo of Summa ... actually, an action shot -- the action being the Monday night meeting of the Mecklenburg BOE, which was in the process of cutting Early Voting hours -- see below.  "Mrs. Summa" is on the left. True to the Dallas Woodhouse marching orders, Summa equated people wanting to vote early with potential committers of fraud. Photo by Jim Morrill, Charlotte Observer.
