    Wandering Eye: Heather Mizeur supporters express their dismay, the troubling rise in "sneak and peek" warrants, and more
    Looks like progressive Democratic gubernatorial candidate Heather Mizeur's advice to her supporters—to not write her in on the general-election ballot after her strong but insufficient showing in June's primary—was pretty much taken to heart, since only 4,259 write-in votes were cast, not enough to impact Democrat Anthony Brown's nearly 5-percent deficit against victorious Republican Larry Hogan. Though a slim fraction of the total, it's still more than twice the number of write-in votes cast in the last two gubernatorial races. Nearly half of this year's gubernatorial write-in votes were cast in Baltimore City (1,062) and Baltimore County (939), with another 479 in Montgomery County and 348 in Anne Arundel County. The "Write-in Heather Mizeur 2014" Facebook page has some pointed commentary this morning, like "Stop overlooking your progressive base, Dems," and "The democrats fucking deserve it." (Van Smith)
