I just love this stuff


Any time a story starts like this, it's sure to pique my curiosity.
Just when you thought this election year couldn’t get any stranger, a startling discovery was announced earlier Thursday evening outside the Bridgeport government building where overtime vote-counting is taking place to determine the winner of Tuesday’s gubernatorial election: that officials in Bridgeport had neglected to mention that they had had a bag full of uncounted ballots stowed away.
As amusing as this is, the Bridgeport story appears to be over for the time being as
Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch announced the [city's vote] totals at a press conference around 6:20 a.m., after elections workers there tallied votes through the night.
It surprises me not a whit that Finch took it upon himself to announce the city's results as he couldn't have been more upset with his registrars of voters on Tuesday night.

Needless to say, I don't expect Foley to go down without a fight (Even the execrably clueless Martha Dean appears to be thinking about contesting her loss in the AG race.), but it really looks as if the Constitution State is going to have its first Democratic governor in two decades.
