You will not meet 84-year-old Nevadan Charlotte McCourt in this life. But you might read about her political legacy, which consists almost entirely of her obituary:

Her obituary, printed in Tuesday’s Review-Journal, reads in part, “We believe that Mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to U.S. Congress. Let the record show Charlotte was displeased with his work. Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate.”
