The Plot Thickens

In a story I covered yesterday, about the possible suit by losing Democratic candidates E.C. Jones, Joe Cooper and Shep Wilbun to access voting records from certain precincts, Fox13 News reports that suit will probably go ahead, and they add more information about the nature of the problem.

It turns out that the person who put the wrong cable into the wrong port erased all the voting data received at Ridgeway High School. The suit is to get access to the individual data cassettes from the voting booths, either to recount or review. There was, in the contention of Joe Cooper, sufficient time during the gathering of the cassettes to reconstruct the vote totals, for mischief. The Election Commission denies any wrong-doing or miscount.

More on this as it develops.

Until next time, that is all.
