VA 5th District RECOUNT-Hooray!
Posted by ginnypub on November 24, 2008
I posted earlier about the stink of voter fraud wafting up from VA’s 5th District here. The Haskells’ Martinsville full-of-Bulletin have been hip, hip hooraying for Periello. You could almost feel the bated breath each time votes materialized for Periello out of thin air. The announcement by Rep. Virgil Goode today that he will file papers tomorrow for a recount was reported in a much more, let’s say, somber tone.
“Over 316,000 votes were cast in this Election for U.S. Representative. The morning after the Election Night, with all precincts reporting, we were ahead by 446 votes. Since that time, over 3,200 votes have changed — the largest changes coming from cities and counties that voted for my opponent. Now, we are trailing by 745 votes in the certified count.”- Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA)
I’m going to hold back a little on my celebrating. With the area’s ties to ACORN, especially the Haskells, God only knows what will happen.
