In another example of the over-lawyering of elections, Senator-elect Patricia Ritchie sued the boards of elections in the three counties in the Senate district even though election night results placed her well ahead of incumbent Darrel Aubertine.
Aubertine's decision to delay a formal concession until the counting of absentee ballots apparently led to a spate of paranoia in the GOP ranks and the suit was filed on a Sunday in the Oswego County clerk's office.
All of this shows you cannot even win an election without having the resources to go to court over your win. God help anyone who wants to run for office without sufficient funds for lawyers.
