Skip to comments.Bridgeport's Missing Republican Votes (over half of CT's traditional GOP voters were no shows)

Gosh looks like California isn’t the only place with ‘stupid’ republicans.
Can the Secretary of State in Ct call for an audit. It seems as though Dem votes showed up last minute, who’s to say many Republican votes disappeared?
Rigged machines?....I’m just saying....
CT voters were waiting in line to vote on 11/2, we could not wait and I guarantee the motivation was with the “take our government back” message not keep spending and kill us. No way, even in Bridgeport, that Republicans were a no show, it’s just not possible!
"'stupid' Republicans" or fraud overdrive?
I pray the influence of the TEA Parties will soon bring an end to election fraud.
The Connecticut Post has been a primary apologist for all that reeks in Bridgeport. The way they’ve presented the election mess as ‘reporting’ was part of the script we’re all supposed to be playing along with for the priviledge of living nearby (safely, so far) the rats nest. USA out of Bridgeport now.
I was just mimicking the FR scolds.
I trust the remnants of the Connecticut Republican party will look into this.
The author, Raymond, is doing a superficial job on reviewing the results. All previous GOV elections in CT since the close one in ‘94 have been GOP landslides for an incumbent.
Foley got the base GOP vote which other non-GOV non-incumbent candidates have been getting. It is likely that there was fraud in the numbers, but we don’t know that from looking at the results. The Bridgeport numbers at least “look plausible.” In ‘06, the 2 GOP state Senate candidates received 4700 votes. And one of them was a Bridgeport resident and incumbent (Russo).
A thorough audit of results in New Haven, Hartford, Meriden, Bprt would be called for. But if the extra 5000 votes are fake, they were spread around the state, not concentrated in Bprt.
Anybody check Burr Creek?
In 2000, the foreign born population of the city was 20.5%. Hispanics of all races made up 31.9% of the population and blacks 30.8%. Whites were 45%.
“This undoubtedly is due in part to the influx of social justice organizations, which seem to spread poverty, slums, and welfare dependency wherever they set up shop. Detroit is a textbook example of the desperate plight these community agitators cause when they gain political power and rip to shreds the industrial and economic base of the community.”
This sums up the Obama Administration, and what it is doing to America, better than anything I have ever seen.
This always happens, it seems. I looked up the salaries of the state “workers” who are paid to enforce CT election laws they make over $60K apiece PER YEAR. They should all be FIRED!
Struggling to figure out how to top last year's instigated (by me) confrontations. So far all I've come up with is the 15 posters I've printed of "Driving Miss Sara" to put up all around the banquet room...
Bridgeport Rejects Ballot Recount

HARTFORD -- Bridgeport officials, citing a lack of authority for Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, have rejected a request to recount ballots in the 12 city voting precincts that were kept open an extra two hours on Election Day.
Bysiewicz's office said Arthur C. Laske III, deputy city attorney, called Monday afternoon to announce that the city would not be redoing the count that they originally performed in the days after the Nov. 2 election.
Laske's call occurred hours after a Bysiewicz news conference announcing that Bridgeport's voting registrars agreed to perform an additional review of the ballots as part of a routine statewide recount of totals in 74 polling precincts.
