Bag of Ballots "Discovered" in Close Connecticut Governor Race

Posted: Nov 05, 2010 8:49 AM
Remember when we told you about the exceedingly tight gubernatorial contest in Connecticut?  You know, the race that the media called for Democrat Dan Malloy within minutes of the polls closing on Tuesday, only to rescind the projection on Thursday morning?  Well, Thursday evening brought about another bizarre development in this Nutmeg State saga:  It seems Democrats have managed to "discover" an entire bag of uncounted ballots -- in a heavily Democratic area, no less!

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.

The votes could be pivotal in the race for Governor, in which neither candidate has conceded defeat

Democrats sure have a penchant for unearthing favorable ballots in very close elections.  Al Franken was the beneficiary of a similar miraculous discovery in 2008.  Who needs ACORN when bags of ballots can be produced on demand?
