Question this morning: Do legal sales folks need another Wow!
Caller to CM's view is that if the pro-legal sales forces win, it will be because of the story in "The Adair County Community Voice," on Wednesday, March 10, 2016 by Sharon Burton. He wonders if that will be enough. Your comments welcome
By Ed Waggener
A caller this morning, who favors Legal Sales of Alcoholic Beverages, said he fears the vote will be 400 short on the Yes side if it were taken today.
"If I'm wrong," he said, "and it wins, it will be because of Sharon Burton's story about buying whisky at a local bootleggers and how easy it is. That was a wow factor which could have turned the tide."
He said that it was a "Wow!" factor in Russell County, when it was revealed that liquor interest helped fund the Dry opposition, which tipped the scales there.
Many had thought that revelation would positively affect the campaign in Adair County. Instead, it appears that it's only effect was for the drys to re-think their game plan, and to come up with the idea that the bootleggers want Adair County to go wet, on the notion that the bootleggers would get even more business than they had when it was dry.
