FOOLISH MAN (from Barry Meislin):Man Defeats Wife in Kan. Election (THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, November 7, 2002)
Marital bliss appears to have survived a political race that pitted county Judge Steve Becker against his wife.
Becker, a Republican, drew 13,375 votes to the 5,638 cast for wife Sarah Sweet-McKinnon, a Democrat who works as a public defender in Wichita. [...]
