Hurricane Carole?

Here's a kinda-icky story about how Texas gubernatorial wannabe Carole Keeton Strayhorn is hiring people to get her the 45,450 signatures she needs by May 11 to become an official candidate. Turns out her campaign's using the Dallas-based National Voter Outreach to find her volunteers to collect those pesky petition signatures--by putting want ads in such places as The Dallas Morning News promising "$$$$$$" to "Katrina victims" who want to "get on your feet today." Either very icky or very helpful. No, wait. It's both. --Robert Wilonsky
