After Mayor Andy Berke reportedly voted by accident for Boone, N.C. – Chattanooga’s competitor – in Outside Magazine’s online “Best Towns” contest, the Chattanooga City Council will decide if he will face impeachment for the mistake.

“I could have sworn I clicked on ‘Chattanooga,'” said Berke. “I wasn’t wearing my glasses, and my finger must have slipped. Next thing I know, I hit the ‘Vote’ button, but it was too late. I am so, so sorry.”

Round 4 of Outside Magazine’s contest pits Chattanooga against Boone in a close match, and voting ends at 11:59 p.m. tonight.

“This is a grave matter that we must take very seriously,” said the City Council in a written statement. “However, Berke said that he cleared his Internet browser cookies and then voted again, this time for Chattanooga, so that may earn him some leniency.”
