    "We reclaimed part of America. The area will never be as bad again."

    Others aren't as sure. Certainly the investigation has restored some semblance of democracy to Mingo County. Twenty-six-year-old Tim Crum, elected mayor of Kermit last May in what most observers agree was the first clean election in Mingo's history, says, "There's no way I could have won my office a few years ago.

    Now what are the odds that the person mentioned here in the 1988 article isn't related to the current victim?  Pretty slim in Mingo. And all that was before meth and oxy hit so hard down there.

    At least they managed one clean election. I wonder if there's been one since (says somebody with family in Lincoln County, home of the most recent election fraud convictions).
