    Longtime mayor with an unfortunate name.

    Congratulations Fort Wayne! Your efforts to save yourself from ridicule have failed, and you've dishonored a devoted public servant. If there is/was a better candidate, fine - but really - afraid of a snicker or two?

    On the plus side - I anticipate Parks and Rec doing a "ripped from the headlines" episode.

    Three terms? Fort Wayne loved it some Harry Baals.

    It's a shame Johnson and Baals didn't tie in the vote.

    I can see the headline now: "Polls show Johnson, Baals side by side"

    Then, as the recount begins to take shape, the editorial page chimes in:
    "Baals shrinks as Johnson's lead grows"
    "Johnson swelling with pride while Baals sweats"

    Finally, the female third-party candidate calls shenanigans on both:
    "Republican Twait says Johnson, Baals dirty"

    "Johnson's premature celebration: Voters choose Baals"

    "Baals clean up in hand count, Johnson continues to fall"

    "Baals beat Johnson"

    "I served with Harry Baals, I knew Harry Baals, Harry Baals was a friend of mine. You are no Harry Baals."
