Posted: Updated:

As the Mark Foley scandal continues into yet another week, voters are paying close attention to the Congressional race in Florida's 16th district, where State Representative Joe Negron has been selected by Republicans to replace Foley in the November vote. Unfortunately for Negron, state law forbids his name to appear on the ballot--and requires that Mark Foley's stays on. This means that Floridians who want to vote for Negron on November 7th must actually cast their vote for... Mark Foley.
