MARYSVILLE, Mich. (AP) A city council candidate in Michigan who dropped out after saying she wanted to keep her community white "as much as possible" still received 4% of the vote.

Jean Cramer ended her candidacy in Marysville in August, but it was too late to remove her name from the ballot. Cramer finished last among five candidates with 180 votes.

Cramer couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday. Her phone line was busy.

Marysville's new mayor, Wayne Pyden, says he believes Cramer might have received votes from older residents who heard her pledge to help senior citizens.

3. " Might have received votes from older residents

who heard her pledge to help senior citizens."

Yeah, and I'm Mother Goose.

I bet if you got the names of all the people who voted for her, they probably all share membership in a certain organization. The one that has three letters that look like this -- KKK.

5. See lady? This is what happens when only white people vote for you.

And, of course, not all white people are going to vote for you.

Have fun in the unemployment line...

7. Don't know much about her. Did anyone ask her "why" she held this stance?

She would never say, "because I'm a racist." but her answer would be fascinating.
