    Heard on the radio that there are a lot of questions regarding the outcome of voting in the NY 23rd Congressional district. Seems a lot of votes were never reported. Wonder if His Excellency had anything to do with this? Hope Doug is the winner.

    Heard the recount put him about 3000 votes behind, but they hadn't counted the absentee ballots yet.

    How about the fact that the Dem Owens was sworn in to vote on HR3962, yet the Sec. of State(NY) has not certified the election results.

    How many times will they recount to make sure that Hoffman does not get a mojority?

    Can he still be in the running after he conceded on election night?

    Yes, until the Sec.of State certifies the election and that can only be done after ALL ballots are counted.

    Because it was a special election, the big bitch nancy herself swore Owens in. They needed his vote to pass the healthcare reform bill, there is approx. 10,300 absentee ballots to be counted yet. He still can win if the numbers go in his favor.

    Why are the republicans (conservative in this case) so eager to concede, bend over and take whatever the f----ing dems want to give them??? Until we can field some republicans with a set of cajones we will never get ahead of the liberals. G.E.G.

    In another year, he can run again without "lard*ss" scarfing up the other 6600 votes. Bet he can hardly wait.

    Hi Pat:

    That was my point. It looked bad so he (and handlers) bailed out. Dems routinely ride out the total count, including absentee ballots, then demand a recount, and when all that fails go to court. Republicans seem to have the feeling that they can't get down in the dirt and fight for their position. The republican want to "stay above the fray" and as a consequence they are putting on a political correct campaign and losing. Re: McCain's pathetic campaign last year. Point is, they (republicans) need a change of attitude or we will always be second. And unlike Avis, we are not trying harder. Thanks, G.E.G.

    The 7 thousand or so votes cast for the non candidate Republican is the smelly frosting on this turd pie.

    I guess there are a lot of VERY stupid people in New York. Why was she on the Ballot?

    Sheesh.

    I think she bowed out over the weekend before the election.
    Ballots don't change quickly unless you are a Democrat in New Jersey, remember the Torricelli/Lautenberg affair?
