Florida: Reversal of Fortune in Brandenton, as mayor who was tossed out in recall wins back his seat in a card draw

Crazy result in Bradenton Beach. To quickly recap, in May, Bill Shearon was ousted in a recall by the Vice Mayor Jack Clarke 185-172 (the issue was a violation of the Sunshine law) . Shearon and Clarke had a rerun race on Election Day, and this time the vote was tied 195 each. So, they went to a pack of cards. Clarke got a 10, Shearon an Ace. So Shearon is now once again Mayor.

We've seen recall reruns, we've seen reversals, but never in this fashion.
