What a timely coincidence

And so thoroughly unexpected given the source -- the County that keeps giving us Sheriff Joe Arpaio:

Officials in Maricopa County, Ariz., mistakenly listed the general election date as Nov. 8, not Nov. 6, in the Spanish translation of an "official government document," according to ABC News. The document was attached to updated voter registration cards that voters had requested.

I hope whoever was in charge of making this mistake gets fired.

making a mistake like this shows that the person in charge was either corrupt or incompetent.

either way, they shouldn't have the job if they make a mistake this big.

It's like a teacher teaching the class that two plus two equals five.

If you've ever worked for or know anybody that does work for maricopa county you'll know that the person that made this mistake is already on a fast track to a promotion.

The county has a well established "screw up to move up" policy.

Well, the first fuck-up in the write-up is the presumption that it was an error, not an intentional attempt at voter suppression.

Because, umm, Arabic numerals don't change from English to Spanish.

"6" is exactly the same fuckin' thing in Spanish as it is in English.

A friend of mine received an official Arizona Economic [In]Security document that said:

“$3607 has been added to your unemployment benefits.”

(…because of a Democratic federal extension the AZ Republicans couldn’t block.)

The reverse side said, in Spanish:

“has been awarded to your unemployment benefits.” (no amount.)
