Conn. Secretary Of State: I Have No Answers On Gov Race
CBS ^

Posted on 11/04/2010 7:04:12 PM PDT by Chet 99

There was election drama in Connecticut on Thursday.

Two days after residents cast their votes, they’re still waiting for word on who will be their next governor. Connecticut’s secretary of state said she can’t tell the media who the next governor is, even though she did just that unofficially on Wednesday.

Susan Bysiewicz, a Democrat, unofficially declared Democrat Dan Malloy the likely governor-elect on the day after the election, but now, it seems, vote tally snags in Bridgeport is preventing her verifying her own prediction.

She spoke with CBS 2’s Lou Young in Hartford on Thursday afternoon.

“The numbers that we got yesterday were numbers that were given to us by an election official over the phone, but we do not have the returns,” Bysiewicz said. “We are waiting as you are and I don’t have anything really more to add.”

When she was asked if she was advising the media to forget about what she said Wednesday about the numbers from Bridgeport, Bysiewicz said, “I am reminding you that I gave you unofficial numbers. Our numbers are on our Web site, but I cannot compel Bridgeport to prepare their return and give it to us.”

So, officially, Republican Tom Foley is ahead by 8,400 votes, but Bridgeport, the largest city in the state, is expected to erase that lead.

Given enough time and lawyers they will erase his lead and once again no investigations into voter fraud will be made.

This was the most brazen election heist I’ve witnessed in a long, long time. Out of the classic DNC voter fraud playbook ala Chicago 1960.

That sound you hear is Democrats searching for votes.

Dont’s worry. As soon as they find enough, the election will be called. For the democrat, of course.

If you can’t win legitimately, cheat!! (reverse 9-1-1, a great way to reach voters)

The RATS used all the stops in this one.

Step 1: Order too few ballots
Step 2: Create a “crisis” by running out of ballots, so that photocopies are used instead (without a sequential number)
Step 3: Cry to a crony judge about how people are getting “disenfranchised”
Step 4: Get the judge to “extend” the voting hours while you figure out how many votes you need.
Step 5: Make up your margin of error in those extra few hours by hiding votes in a closet.
Step 6: Bring them out when you have to in order to push your guy over the edge.

Keep in mind that Blumenthal sent out an e-mail to voters in the inner cities LOOKING for extra turnout because it was too low. Then they end up with like 40% turnout. Something smells more than usual in Bridgeport.

SOS Bysiewicz has forgotten this phrase:

“Oh what a web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”
Sir Walter Scott, from the poem “Marmion”.

Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz and her office needs to be investigated.
What an embarrassment and an outrage, ridiculous!

What kind of naked, bald face lying is THAT?! She's the Secretary of State! She most certainly can compel Bridgeport to get their sh!t together and get the ballots in!

“In what has become one of the stranger twists in an already bizarre Governor’s race, a bag of uncounted ballots was found in Bridgeport Thursday night.

Republican officials were approached by Democratic operatives and told about the surprise ballot bag, according to Bridgeport GOP Chairman Marc Delmonico.

Delmonico said Democrats asked to have several people deputized to count the uncounted ballots, but Republicans objected, claiming that wasn’t proper procedure in the vote-counting process.

Instead the GOP asked police to take custody of the bag of ballots until the matter could be sorted out...”

There is a ballot factory or two running somewhere near Bridgeport.

Wonder how many people are involved, where they are, and how they might be found. I wonder if the State Police can find one, or does it take national Guard troops?

Maybe there are a bunch of union guys on vacation this week, not at their regular jobs?

A bust at a ballot factory would be a spike through the heart of this type of fraud.

Finding 100 provisional ballots with the same fingerprints might do it...

There has to be a record of how many ballots were shipped in at the beginning.

Then we’ll eventually get the count.

If the total count is anywhere close to the amount shipped in originally, then the claim of running out is suspect and is probable cause for an investigation.

Usually the “we ran out” cry means that several thousand were diverted.

And ANY ballots showing up outside chain-of-custody is probable cause.

These events, though, always benefit a Dem, and the entire area from dogcatcher to AG is in Dem hands, so it’s unlikely that a democrat AG will make a fuss.

Doesn’t CT have electronic pathways to manage these things? Why is it that every other state managed to get its returns into the SOS? If CT has no electronic infrastructure to handle elections, is it so vast in size that it takes DAYS to transfer the returns to the SOS?

Is anybody doing anything about this woman?

Not one lefty reporter has asked:

—Are the “uncounted” votes for all of Bridgeport or just a few precincts? If just a few precincts name them.
—Are all the votes counted in all the other races? If so, how is that possible?

Theft in broad daylight.

We need armies of lawyers on this one. Sue everybody.

Election theft needs to stop.

You can’t “find” a bag of ballots after an election.

Every person whose vote is in that bag needs to be personally interviewed. Where were they when they placed the vote, etc. All interviews done INDEPENDANTLY of each other.

Prior to the interviews, the chain of owvership needzs to be estab;lished - who - exactly , under penalty of perjury, knows where that bag came from. Who put it down, and who picked it up. If they don’t have that info - no votes should count.

And when they do have that info - that person needs to be tried for perjury, when the data is not supported by the testimony of the “voters”.

One dead voter - the whole bag goes.

Any conspiracy documented - needs to be dealt with as treason.

They "ran out" of ballots. So in order to ensure that no one was disenfranchised, they started photocopying them in addition to going to court for an injunction to keep the polls open a few extra hours.

This is cover for the perfect voter fraud crime if you think about it. You can cry minority disenfranchisement to high heaven if these votes aren't counted.

Something definitely doesn't smell right in CT, that's for sure.

Agreed. Unless you can somehow get these dimwitted RATS to admit that they committed fraud, you can't prosecute because minorities and women would be adversely affected.

The RATS would figure out a way to claim that grandma, the children, gays and lesbians were cheated too, to make it an affront against everything PC.

I heard her on the radio, and the thought that leaped to mind was, “Party hack.”

I just don’t get the mindset of someone who works in this capacity, as the person who is the gatekeeper of the people’s votes, who is so arrogantly partisan.

They diverted genuine ballots to ‘discover’ later, while forcing the use of photocopies.

And they kept the polls open another two hours, but the all-important reverse-911 calls to inform voters of the fact were broadcast only to left-leaning areas.

Here in the UK only properly certified ballots are admissible: if the ballots run out then they run out. But they don’t run out, because the ballot office knows how many legal ballots to create.

It should be the same in America: but of course it isn’t - because Democrats break the law with impunity.

Yes, but who would conduct the investigation? When the legal system is corrupt, the options are severely limited. The GOP has to win outside the margin of fraud to be assured of a victory.
