NYS Comptroller

I voted for Hevesi, with reservations, but the Hevesi/Callaghan race was indeed odd, and this (from today's Times) is a tiny bit heart-breaking:

Mr. Callaghan was emotional in defeat, untying his bow tie and choking back tears as he addressed supporters at an Albany hotel. “I cannot help but regard the decision of New York voters as odd,” he said.

The un-tying of the bow tie is what got me.

On an semi-related note - why is it a Comptroller? I suppose I should just go look it up.
