It makes no sense. After reading on Yahoo! News‘ “The Ticket” that Mike Huckabee turned over records from his stint as governor to the person who was governor before him, I have to ask: How dumb is that?
That’s about as stupid as not knowing the difference between a predecessor and a successor. Now that’s really dumb.
Oh, also, the reporter for “The Ticket” doesn’t seem to know how to use the correlative conjunction either…or. The correlative conjunction must join like parts of speech. So, it should be:
…either were given to his
predecessor successor Gov. Mike Beebe or were placed in storage…
…were either given to his
predecessor successor Gov. Mike Beebe or placed in storage…
