Save Our State of Massachusetts
As a follow up to the post yesterday regarding Jim McKenna’s call for an investigation by the US Attorney General relative to uncounted, and/or thrown away votes, as well as other related and apparent violations of Federal law, McKenna posted the below over at RedMassGroup.
This cannot be partisan. by Jim McKenna
The failure to count votes – particularly the wholesale, willful failure, is equally offensive to all Americans, regardless of party. Moreover, the election officials in most cities and towns properly counted the votes cast – and they likely were Democrats. The focus of our analysis thus far has been on the September, 2010, primary. We have done little concerning the November, 2010, general election, but some of the patterns seen in September seem to have been evident then.
For example, the general results in some Boston precincts seem to defy reason. Perhaps the most alarming example was a precinct in which Karyn Polito received 32 votes in her race, Mary Connaughton received 25 in hers, even I received 17 votes in my race, yet Charlie Baker received only 3 in his race. In that context, it just would not seem probable that Charlie would really have lost as certified – 643 to 3. All of which presents the question of how are things likely to go there this November in the Senate race. [SOSMass adds: OR ANY OTHER ELECTION]
