  •  Who is the prosecuter? Is that an elected position (3+ / 0-)

    This is the kind of stuff social media is for. "Prosecuter Joe Snot refused to do anything to help me get my possessions back when The Dumbfuck Repo Company broke into my house and stole all my things on behalf of a bank they won't name. Whoever that bank is won't return my belongings and no one wants to pay me back for anything."

    •  Yes, this is an elected position (4+ / 0-)

      A quick glance, (and I know nothing of the area), suggests that the folks in the county tend to split their tickets, electing both Democrats and Republicans in state-wide and local elections.

      Plants, a football star at West Virginia, graduated from law school in 2004, spent three years in a firm practicing civil law, and became an assistant prosecutor in 2007. (source)

      In 2008, he ran for Prosecuting Attorney

      Prosecutor

      Bill Murray (D): 35,317
      Mark Plants (R): 36,023

      He won by 700 votes.  The football star, four years out of school, with one year of experience as an assistant prosecutor.

      Then in 2012, he ran unopposed.  In a county where Democrats can and do win.
