JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves is handling a prank with good humor. The Republican asked people to submit the names of high school graduates so he could read them aloud on a webcast. Among more than 10,000 submissions was the name “Harry Azcrac.” Reeves read it out loud, paused briefly and then kept going. It became the butt of jokes on social media. Reeves responded that Harry’s submitter has a bright future as a writer for The Simpsons.
