Calaveras Supervisor Edson: The voters are still waiting for your Birth Certificate!!

Edson is praying for
a miracle. He can only
hope that people are
so stupid, they will
 re-elect him.
   We emailed Calaveras Supervisor Cliff Edson requesting his Birth Certificate and he appears to be hiding it from the public. Not very religious of you, is it?

Supervisor Edson???
