Out of nowhere, here comes Rachel Barth surging ahead in our Rising Star competition, eclipsing colleague David Francis. This means a couple things: Either a.) these Examiner reporters aren’t getting any work done today (we’ll check) b.) they have friends in high places c.) they have friends with crazy good computer skills.
We don’t want to say that something is fishy, but, well, you know…
Regardless, voting closes Monday evening. Will someone make a last minute surge? We’ve seen it before (ahem, Lesley Lopez). If not, and if Barth and Francis take the whole thing, I’ll have to be ready to field all the conspiracy theories in our anonymous tips box about how the whole thing was rigged.
