We need a cute, honesty fix after all the slimy pol sex stories. I’d take this kid over Carlos Danger any day of the week.
DORSET, Minn. – Robert “Bobby” Tufts hasn’t made it to preschool yet, but he’s already been elected twice as mayor of a tiny tourist town in northern Minnesota.
Mayor Tufts’ name was picked Sunday during annual Taste of Dorset festival to be mayor of Dorset for a second term. It has no formal city government and has a population of 22 to 28, depending on whether the minister and his family are in town.
Anyone could vote as many times as they like – for $1 a vote – at any of the ballot boxes in stores around town. The proceeds go toward organizing the festival.
Bobby was only 3 when he won election last year. His mother, Emma Tufts, said she and her son, who turns 5 in October, got choked up when his name was pulled for re-election Sunday.
