It turns out that county elections chief Warren Slocum wasn’t able to post as many updates as he would have liked to his Twitter site yesterday because his arms were pinned to his sides by the massive crowd that gathered for President Barack Obama’s inauguration.
Slocum recounted his nightmarish experience in Washington on his blog.
“I can assure you that (there)were unhappy people and that everything was not perfect,” he wrote. “There was a dark side to the inauguration.”
Slocum emphasized that this visit to Washington was still worthwhile, but he was plenty critical of the people who dreamt up Tuesday’s crowd-management system on the Mall. It’s a good read, if you’ve got a few minutes.
