    ACORN Stole NY-23

    Calls for a paper recount of New York’s embattled 23rd congressional district have risen up after Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman “unconceded” his Election Eve loss,chargeing civil right group ACORN and labor unions rigged the vote.

    “There is a real question on the integrity of the election,” said ALG president Bill Wilson. “Litigation to overturn the results and force a new vote or a full paper recount is a real possibility. There appears to be a substantive equal protection claim here.”

    “As evidence surfaces, we find out that reported results from election night were far from accurate,” Hoffman wrote on his website. “ACORN and the unions did their best to try and sway the results to Obamacare supporter Bill Owens.”
    The Jefferson County Republican elections commissioner told the Watertown Daily Times that Hoffman’s allegations were “absolutely false.”

    Meanwhile, The Gouvenour Times reports that a computer virus may have skewered election results in the favor of Democrat candidate Bill Owens.

    According to the Times, “At least one County official thus far has raised concern that it’s possible that ALL of the machines used in the NY-23 election had the ‘virus’ but only a few malfunctioned as a result. The counts from any district that used the ImageCast machines are suspect due to ‘the virus’ discovered in Hamilton County, last-minute ‘reprogramming’ by Dominion workers, and security flaws in the systems themselves. A manual paper-ballot recount of the vote could resolve computer vote accuracy questions.”
