Whoops! Miss Florida pageant crowns wrong winner
 
Gee....UF football players blocking their own guys, and now this. Something in the water down there?

Florida has just one-upped Delaware in the beauty-pageant gaffe department: The Miss Florida pageant crowned the wrong winner last Saturday because of a vote-counting error and has had to make an embarrassing about-face, reports the Miami Herald.
The pageant initially named Elizabeth Fechtel its winner, and the 20-year-old University of Florida student basked in the glory for all of five days, until a pageant official arrived at her house Thursday evening to inform her that first runner-up Victoria Cowen is getting the crown instead.

I would have just let it go, accept the mistake and brush it under the carpet.

That would not count as a valid ballot at your local polling place. Hopefully, they will compensate the young lady in some other way for their mistake.

At least there can be no blame on dimpled or swinging chads.....

I feel bad for her. That would suck! I hope the pageant system gives her a really nice consolation prize.
