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.
It adds to the inconsistencies from the Democratic Party in Bridgeport. It just keeps adding to it, said Delmonico. Theres nothing odd about it; theres certainly nothing missing about it, said Ed Maley, a representative for the Democratic Party.
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.
These ballots are getting extraordinarily heightened scrutiny. Theyre being dealt with in a public fashion, an open public process so that everyone can witness it, said Mark Anastasi, the city attorney for Bridgeport.
Instead the GOP asked police to take custody of the bag of ballots until the matter could be sorted out.
The votes could be pivotal in the race for Governor, in which neither candidate has conceded defeat.
Wednesday, Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz declared Democrat Dan Malloy the "unofficial" winner, but numbers released by her office show Republican Tom Foley still leading Malloy by more than 8,000 votes. Those totals do not include any of the vote totals from the City of Bridgeport.
Bridgeport has become the focal point of what has turned into a circus of an election.
A ballot shortage led to long lines on Election Day, and a judge issuing an order to keep polls open until 10 p.m. Tuesday, two hours longer than every other town in the state.
Because of the shortage, many of the votes cast Tuesday were done so on photocopied ballots.
Election officials began counting those ballots just after 5 p.m. Thursday when the new bag of uncounted ballots was discovered.
Bysiewicz said she didn't expect the vote totals from Bridgeport to be submitted to her until Friday at the earliest.
If I recall, when Al Franken stole the election in MN, it was the back seat of a car that they found them....go figure.
Why is there always a bag of ballots found by Democrats and then they are favored in their majority? Go figure.
Is this where the Reverse-911 system was used to contact voters...and in only some precincts?
Unfortunately, that is true. Seems like bags of ballots always show up in Democrat controlled precincts in every close election, often in the trunk of a party bosses car, in a union hall, ...
The left doesn’t even hide it anymore, this is so pout in the open now.
everytime a race is close the media will not call it for the republicans if they’re leading but even funnier is that in a close race the left always seems to produce bags of votes which not have been counted days later.
MN was the latest fact of this
their sidekicks in the media will cover for them while they keep printing votes out and hey suddenly we’;ve found another bag of votes look, count them
Media says OK we’ll report that every vote must count, nothing strange about it.
The media right now are destroying this country and letting the rats get away with election fraud at every election.
Why do Republicans never “find” a bag of ballots?...........
It takes longer for the “dead” ballots to show up......
I think I am going find a bunch of Dem women and tell them I have a bag of ballots in my pants.
we need to get to the local media offices up and down this country and demand they do their job plus FOX needs to start camping out in this town and cover this 24/7
people need to know how the left always does this and always seems to find votes days after an election when they’re behind
You know what...
All these “bags of ballot” issue could be resolved in one very simple and secure manner.
#1 Place a serial number on the voting machine or scanner.
#2 As the machine/box is emptied that day, the bag is sealed with a tamper proof numbered tag. And a chain of custody is generated.
#3 Opposite party poll watchers/workers verify the first and final bag out of the machine/box.
Any bag not located is immediately reported missing.
Any bag “found” later that is not on the Chain of Custody is simply not counted.
Any bag that is lost, then found, but appears tampered with is disqualified.
I'm figuring this: if the Republican has an 8,000 vote lead but the SOS has declared the Democrat the 'unofficial winner' that has to be a pretty big bag to contain the 8,001 fraudulent Rat votes (assuming the legitimate Bridgeport votes balance out 50/50). Before any of those votes are counted towards the election I would request a full audit of votes cast totals against ballot forms received and then a detailed chain of custody audit on that bag.
We’re lousy at cheating.
IIRC, that was WA state........
Predictable - isnt it? The CT Republican party should contact every person on those ballots and cross reference them to votes already cast and then if duplicates are found - charge each and every one of them with election fraud.
If we don't start playing their game, we're sunk.
Voter Fraud is Treason!
Whenever the votes close democraps ALWAYS ‘find’ a bag of ballots. Isn’t that amazing? Gee.
Yea a bag of ballots is “found” in Bridgeport.
Good grief what a farce.
You should show them your poll...........
