I Hear Walt Disney Had a Secret Apartment in the Ninth Ward

Kimberly Williamson Butler won't be the next mayor of New Orleans, but that's okay, because apparently she was running for mayor of New Orleans Square:
On the left, the header image of Butler’s campaign website. On the right, a picture of New Orleans Square in Disneyland. And, uh, we’re not sayin’, we’re just sayin’… frankly, we don’t remember what the trash cans looked like in the French Quarter, but the cleanliness of the street and the presence of fannypackin’ middle-Americans has us a wee bit suspicious.
Link. Unfortunately Butler's campaign promises—to keep dogs with celldoor keys away from the outstretched arms of prisoners, and to find once and for all the haunted mansion's thousandth ghost—didn't appeal to NOLA voters, who couldn't decide which last name associated with local government failures during Katrina they preferred least.
