Whitney is 'Whitey' on some ballots :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Election 2010

SPRINGFIELD -- The last name of Green Party gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney is misspelled as "Whitey" on electronic-voting machines in nearly two dozen wards -- about half in predominantly African-American areas -- and election officials said Wednesday the problem cannot be corrected by Election Day.

"I don't want to be identified as 'Whitey." Whitney told the Chicago Sun-Times. "I don't know if this is machine politics at play or why this happened."
