GOP claims bag of uncounted ballots found in Conn.
By Susan Haigh, Associated Press 2 hrs 39 mins ago
HARTFORD, Conn. The Republican candidate for governor in Connecticut says a bag of uncounted photocopied ballots has been found, further throwing into question the outcome of the race.
Tom Foley says the bag was found during the counting of ballots in Bridgeport, where a shortage Tuesday night forced officials to photocopy ballots. Foley says it's unclear where the ballots originated and whether they are valid. He wants them impounded.
Foley and Democrat Dan Malloy have claimed victory in Tuesday's election.
The secretary of the state said Wednesday that Malloy was the winner by more than 3,000 votes. But the tallies from Bridgeport still have not been submitted.
Bridgeport officials haven't commented on Foley's claim a bag of ballots was found.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Connecticut's top election official said Thursday she did not have the final vote totals yet in the disputed governor's race because of a delay in the state's largest city.

So how many does our guy need? I’m sure we could all print up a few dozen and “find them” if someone can email out a template.
Could we finally win one of these close ones?
After Colorado, Washington and Illinois - couldn’t we please at least get one of these to go our way?
We have the election system equivalent of the worst dictatorships in the world. One of the things that the next Congress MUST do is to establish uniform voting standards to ensure a fair vote.
So if they can find bags of abllots 2 days after the election why cant the military ballots be counted? This is ridiculous. And the democrats found the ballots so who do you think they will favor this is wrong
How in the world could photocopied ballots possibly be legal? That means the originals are out there somewhere and probably have already been counted.
Yup, And if in doubt then the votes don’t count. And prosecute the fraudsters and those that break election laws.
More ‘Rat corruption.
Ties always go to the libtards. That’s statistically impossible unless there is corruption.
Here is another good article on this. Another question that needs to be asked is why did they run out of ballots and were there mass amounts of people voting that were not registered to vote. If that is established then election officials in that area should be arrested for vote fraud, and those that voted illegally as well.
We need ELECTION fraud prisons. In these prisons the inmates get to vote for there release, but somehow they just always seem to loose.
The RAT election clerk who was in charge of these ballots needs to go to jail.
The list of registered voters in Bridgeport contains "x" number of names.
If the number of ballots ordered and printed equals "x" then any shortage of ballots before the polls close indicates fraud. In fact, they would have to print up more than "x" because there are people who screw up theirs and must ask for a fresh one.
If, in fact, not enough were printed, all persons responsible for getting them ordered and printed need to be fired and prosecuted for gross malfeasance.
From what I've heard, a few places in Connecticut ran out of ballots. (How THAT happened is a mystery and should be investigated.) A judge kept polling places open past closing time and they used photocopied ballots for those who didn't have a regular one.
This could get good.
“A judge kept polling places open past closing time and they used photocopied ballots for those who didn’t have a regular one.”
I’ve never heard of a judge keeping polling places open in Republican precincts. So this probably won’t help the R.
I am so glad you said that. Amen.
I think the appropriate penalty for tampering with an election is summary execution. In public. By pistol. What could really be a greater crime? You murder someone, you harm them and their loved ones—you tamper with an election and you harm every American, ultimately even those your act “benefited.”
Then, accidentally, over 400 ballots were found--just enough to allow him to challenge Ellmers, who had won by 2000+ votes in an area where the vote cannot be challenged if the margin is 2000. Coincidentally, every one of those "found" ballots were for Etheridge!
Wondering if this is what they did in Portland, OR too?
