Its game-on in the effort to at least discredit the results of the November 3rd election. The Gouverneur Times reports the presence of a virus in some of the optical scan tabulators used in this years election. Add to that, tabulation and transcription errors on election night and allegations from Team Hoffman that ACORN and Company tampered with the process in some unknown and unnamed way.
Before you know it Glenn Beck will say it's the Chicago Way at work in NNY and while it won't change Bill Owens election, it will make Doug Hoffman a victim and I suspect he hopes provide the impetus for a rematch next year. The press coverage over the purported election miscues will stimulate fundraising and may allow Hoffman to enter 2010 with a hefty war chest that could scare off challengers. It could also make him look whacky.........
The good thing about this voting system is it does leave a trail of paper ballots that could be recounted by hand......150,000 of them.
