Malloy Wins: AP
NBC ^ | 11/05/2010

Posted on 11/05/2010 3:02:50 PM PDT by library user

Dan Malloy has defeated Republican Tom Foley to become the first Democrat in two decades to be elected governor of Connecticut.

The Associated Press on Friday reinstated its call of Malloy as the winner of the governor's race.

The AP initially called Malloy the winner on Wednesday, after Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz said her preliminary count showed Malloy had won by 3,103 votes, but withdrew the call Wednesday night when its vote count, with all but a handful of precincts reporting, showed Foley with a narrow lead.

Bridgeport elections officials handed the final numbers over to Bysiewicz on Friday afternoon.

“We tend to play by rules. They believe the only rule is “There are no rules”. Win at any cost, which is easy when you have no soul.”

At some point, we have GOT to start fighting back, right? At some point also, this cheating and slimey back dealing has GOT to catch up with the RATS; we MUST make it happen. What are we sitting around here for? What the HE double hockey sticks can we do??!

“Aren’t there at least a few of them who are sickened by this voter fraud crap?

It will, after all, bring great harm to their own children.”

Whoever may pretend to care in the RAT party, are closing their eyes and looking the other way, as is the stinkin’ RAT propagandist press.

Bag of Uncounted Ballots Found in Bridgeport

Bush in 2000 was an exception only because the Supreme Court stopped them from “finding” more ballots.

Remember also that before that a bunch of pissed off people got off their duffs and literally pounded on doors to be let in to oversee a fair recount process. This crap is going to stop only if one of the following two things happen:

1. Some 'Rat candidates start losing elections because of voter fraud. When some of these close races get tipped to the 'Pub candidate because of manufactured votes, the 'Rats will have an incentive to do something about enforcing election laws against fraud (although it will be selective enforcement).

or

2. The 'Pubs take this to the streets. I'm beginning to think that with a corrupt election process, only going street will fix the problem. I know that isn't the 'Pub way, but, remember, our forefathers were faced with the same problem in the late 1700s, a corrupt system, no recourse for redress of grievances, insult after insult, no protection from corrupt authorities other than self defense, etc. They finally had to start shooting at people. I really, truly hope it doesn't come to that, but where do you go for protection when the police (think Holder's Dept. of Injustice) are criminals? Where do you go for honest political representation when the election system is crooked? Where do you go for justice when the courts are corrupt?

The Repubs should introduce a bill that sentences anyone involved in vote fraud to a mandatory 5 years in prison without parole. The organizers of such activity sentenced to death for crimes against the State. Make the Dems vote on it!

Do Republicans have NO lawyers???????????

Sure. But they're all RINOs. When a real conservative Republican conservative lawyer makes the news, the RNC either badmouths him, or..."crickets." J. Christian Adams at the DOJ is hearing "crickets" now as he tries to expose Holder on the Philly New Black Panther travesty.

As for lawyers-— Foley was flanked by two(one from Rudy Guiliani’s firm)at his news conference thios morning.

And this from Ct.Post news:

In the meantime, the Connecticut GOP confirms it is formally requesting that the state’s 169 municipalities turn over all election records for inspection to the party under the Freedom of Information Act. Republican volunteers are hand-delivering public records requests to registrars and town clerks across the state.

“This is not unusual in case a statewide recount is ordered,” said Christopher Healy, the state GOP chairman.

Fred DeCaro III, Greenwich’s Republican registrar, confirmed that he received a FOIA request at 12:20 p.m. Friday. “It asks for everything,” DeCaro said. Covered in the request are ballot logs, lists of inactive voters, moderators’ memos, tally sheets, official check lists, absentee ballot request lists, the number of rejected absentee ballots and the number of spoiled ballots.

Always “unexpectadly” found with hours of polls closing, and knowing EXACTLY how many votes needed for the dem to win.
Even in psychotically left wing precincts, the dem doesn’t get 90% of the vote. Yet the enchanted bags of mystery always break for the dem. This should be priority #1 for the new GOP congress. I know they are terrified that blacks and latinos “won’t like” them for it but honest minorities have to be made to understand that THEIR votes are being stolen by their democrat masters. You never know when a corrupt republican administration starts acting like this, with bags of “uncounted” GOP votes being found. They don’t understand that this can swing both ways.

‘It would help if we had a real investigative journalists out there.....we have ZILCH! Only partisans anymore.’

The press of yesteryear lore is dead. We do have a cadre of young conservatives (Andrew Brietbart and Erick Erickson come to mind) that are remaking journalism, however as we've found out from Brietbart’s connection to James O’Keefe, this can be a double edged sword at times. James had a flash of fame with ACORN and I think allowed that to get to his head in a couple of weird ill conceived failures since then.

Yeah, but we've got no one like Woodward and Bernstein really on our side...

Why do we always give up so fast? Why why why?

This is not the way to preserve our country. I don’t care who wins, but I want legitimacy for our system. This chicanery MUST STOP to save our country and we are the ones who must stop it. Why do we back off so quickly when we know for a fact it is corruption and thievery to the hilt? I am more disgusted we ourselves than the thieves.

Why force honesty when any RINO knows you can just trade the concession on the vote for the agreement to send some additional pork your way. Fewer RINO mouths to feed and more for each mouth. It all works out in the end. Everyone is happy.

Bridgeport is the Detroit of CT. Like Detroit, that reports its election results last in Michigan, the 'Rats wait to see what they're going to need and come up with the votes. They always manage to find enough votes to put them over the top.

Which begs the question...did he REALLY win? or did they cheat immensely?

Question??? There is no question at all. The only question is how can we turn this around and find the evidence. I suggest that what we need to do is go over the ballets and the records of who voted in just one fairly large city that has a university very, very carefully. We need to spend the money and find out if each and every vote casted in that city is legitimate to the point of cross checking the college student’s votes with the locations of their parents homes and find out if they voted twice. We need to find out if each person that said they voted is a legal citizen or if they are on parole. We need to find out if they are dead or if possible if they even in deed did vote. We need to take the election apart in just one suspect city and find out just what went on. We need to find out just how much cheating is going on. Whatever mechanisms for cheating are going on in that city you can be sure are going on in countless places.

It wouldn't’t surprise me if unbelievably countless elections are lost not because of votes but because of vote fraud. We MUST get a firm grip on this situation and put it to a stop. This has to be our number one priority and we must do all we can and put as much of our resources on this as necessary. This is where our battle lies, plain and simple. It time we get our heads out of the sand and stand up and be counted!

We always hear a vague statement that more votes were found, but we never hear any really specific details of how they came to be lost in the first place, who lost them, or who found the lost votes and why they were not found until later.

I would certainly like the details, so I can further evaluate whether I think fraud happened.

We never hear the details. I wonder why?

Brady in Illinois has NOT conceded the Governor’s election. He is behind 19.000+ but there may be 50,000 absentee/military votes not counted yet. Suffice it to say though that it doesn’t look good for us: I’m sure the Dems already have ‘found’ boxes of Dem votes in the wings.

Brady was polling 5-6 pts ahead. I don’t know what the he— happened...
