I hate to pile on the AJC with regard to their election coverage, because they've already taken plenty of lumps for cravenly weaseling out of endorsing candidates in the Atlanta city elections.
But, sweet Jesus, did they screw things up! As my colleague Thomas noted in an earlier post, someone over on Marietta Street just plumb forgot to add in the results from precincts in DeKalb County. (Granted, DeKalb, which is usually very facile with online data, has made it excruciatingly difficult to find said results.)
The snafu is most noticeable in the District 6 Council race, where the AJC online graphic suggests that Tad Christian made the runoff, rather than Liz Coyle:
While the DeKalb numbers didn't alter who won or who survived in any other Council districts, they did change the percentages in all the city-wide races.
Without further ado, here's a link to the corrected numbers (PDF).
