Unfortunately, the voters have spoken on this matter. The Childers and Langston relationship was well-known. Other factors apparently outweighed the impropriety of this appearance to too many people. Anybody who claims they were unaware of the depth of the Childers-Langston relationship is either a liar or not a very serious voter.
