Summer's finally here! Time for fun, sun, surf, sand, and the Second Annual Hawkeye Hoosegow Honey of the Year Pageant. Once again I'm inviting you to submit your vote to determine who deserves the title of Iowa's most arresting arrestee. This year's Sweet Fifteen features another bevy of beauties culled from the mugshot galleries of Des Moines' Polk County Jail, thanks to the hard work of dilligent readers like Joe D., Mongo, and Cletus from Des Moines. Look close and you'll see a couple of familiar faces - including an out-of-state ringer who was recently sprung from the Los Angeles County Jail.
- Charges are not convictions, and all Hoosegow Honeys are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law! Google it.
- Vote for your favorite gal, but please - vote only once. Ballot shennanigans will not be tolerated!
- Each Hoosegow Honey will receive 4 bonus points per $1000 assessed bond. These will be added to the vote totals, and the final tally will determine the winner.
Rock the vote! Candidate profiles follow.
