The @ShortyAwards tampering with its own election!

I cannot believe what I just saw when I went over to the "politics" category at the Shorty Awards web site:

At the top of the voting category it has avatars of eight (8) twitter accounts which are not faring well in the voting, and says: "Undecied? [sic] Check out these popular politics accounts you can nominate."

Then it provides a "more" link which leads you to other accounts that aren't faring too well in the election, either.

Don't they realize how corrupt this is???

It would be like the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences suggesting to its members who it should nominate, and who it should vote for.

This really taints the award process, as it suggests something really wrong with the company administering the Shorty Awards.
