Connecticut Democrat Jokes About Corruption
Video at link.
Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch is at it again. The Democrat who presided over a 2010 vote casting and counting scandal in the tight race for governor was caught on video Friday guaranteeing Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Christopher Murphy a big result in the state's largest city--even if it takes days to count. Murphy and Finch served together in Connecticut's state Senate for four years.

Bridgeport provided a crucial and dubious margin of victory to Democratic and Working Families Governor Dannel P. Malloy in 2010 amidst unprecedented chaos at the city's polling places. The 2010 Bridgeport assault on democracy included photocopied ballots, altered hours at polling places, a mysterious bag of votes and Finch's abuse of the city's emergency notification system to increase turnout on Election Day.

Murphy, locked in a dead heat with Republican Linda McMahon, needs the grimy Bridgeport Guarantee. He got it from Finch on Friday while visiting small businesses in the poverty-wracked city. A laughing Finch boasts even if it takes a couples of days to get the results,"You can be guaranteed you're going to get the vote." Two years after the 2010 fiasco, it remains no laughing matter to the rest of Connecticut.

#1  Another Joker. Like Biden. Everything is a joke.
Posted by: newc || 10/15/2012 0:21 Comments || Top||

#2  Long past time for tar, feathers and a rail.
Posted by: DarthVader || 10/15/2012 0:43 Comments || Top||

#3  And this is different from the voter fraud in Washington state (Gov. Gregoir's 'recount 'em until I win' governorship), the election of Senator Franken via the fradulent votes of thousands of felons, etc. etc. etc. how?

And the same thing is going to happen in the Presidential election. Obama will be re-elected with a narrow victory. The press is all-in and all they need to do is create enough doubt that his victory is due to voter fraud so that we don't just rise up and throw the rascals out the old fashioned way.

Democracy is dead.
