4-year-old mayor re-elected for second term of office - Update

The small town of Dorset in northern Minnesota has re-elected its incumbent mayor. Mayor Robert "Bobby" Tufts is 4-years-old.

Each year a draw is held and the winner gets to be mayor. Anyone can vote as many times as they like, for $1 a vote, at any of the ballot boxes in stores around town.

Bobby was running for a second term. On Sunday, a blindfolded man drew the winning name from a plastic tub.

Mayor Tufts will spend his next term raising money for Ronald McDonald House Charities, a new welcome sign for Dorset and attending preschool in the autumn.

LOL, exactly! They can trust the man in a nappy. But wait, is he held accountable to the binky lobby?!

What a cutie!
