Corruption in elections? Only in a Banana Republic?

Lets say the governors race in your state is very close.  After a day and the winner hasn’t been declared.  Then a political party person comes to a member of the other party and say’s, “Hey we just found a bag of uncounted ballots.”  “How’s about we count these suckers up and see what happens.”  Would that seem a little strange?  Hummm

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.  “There’s nothing odd about it; there’s 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.

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

I’m sure it’s all legit.   It’s pretty easy to misplace a ballot bag on election night when so much is at stake.
