Doreian P. and Albert L.H. (1989) provide network data for a set of prominent
political actors in a mid-Western city in the U.S. The network tie is
`strong political ally'. The County Executive (A) and the County Auditor
(B) were strong political rivals, each with their own supporters. The
substantive issue was the construction of a Federally mandated new jail.
Each of the protagonists had staked out a position: actor A supported the
construction of the jail while B opposed this course of action. The County
Council (actors D through J) was split over this issue.
