I cannot believe what I saw when I went over to the "politics" category at the Shorty Awards web site:
At the top of the voting category it has avatars of eight (8) twitter accounts which are not faring well in the voting, and says: "Undecied? [sic] Check out these popular politics accounts you can nominate."
Then it provides a "more" link which leads you to a small number of other accounts that aren't faring too well in the election, either.
Don't they realize how corrupt this is???
It would be like the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences suggesting to its members who it should nominate, and who it should vote for, in the Academy Award voting.
This really taints the award process, and suggests something really wrong with the company administering the Shorty Awards.
Can they possibly be that clueless, not to realize that you can't run an election and make suggestions on who to nominate in that election, without demonstrating to the world that your election is rigged?
