135,000 'test' ballots mistakenly added:

results so wrong

NEW YORK — "Foolishness." "Unfortunate." "Generations of failures." New York City's Board of Election is facing widespread criticism after it mistakenly included some 135,000 "test" ballots in partial results released Tuesday in its tightly-contested mayoral election. The three-way contest — between Brooklyn borough President Eric Adams; Maya Wiley, former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio; and Kathryn Garcia, former Department of Sanitation head — has been upended with a murky picture of who is ahead after the election board's botched release and scores of mail-in votes remain to be counted. Ranked choice voting is being used for the first time in citywide primaries this year,

Now, could anyone else see where these new rules concerning voting were going to lead to a colossal mess ? While it is funny to see Democrats eat their own....and NY'ers certainly deserve this mess, it is a sad commentary of the state of our country that this sort of criminal conduct is tolerated and defended, especially by the alleged media

Was this "error" done on purpose by the Democrats to show why they think their national takeover of elections is needed? Can't you hear them claiming that this wouldn't have happened if their bill had been passed.

How do you start eliminating candidates when there is over 100000 absentee ballots not yet counted? They have already run 8 elimination counts without the absentee ballots. Then...... the counting won't be complete until sometime in mid or late July??? Adding in 135K test ballots is just the cherry on top of the most incompetent election that I've ever seen. Anyone remember the Iowa 2020 democrat primary? They still can't definitively say who won that election. I'm proposing a new constitutional amendment. Liberals are to be forever forbidden to run elections.

As long as computers are allowed in voting, the elections in the US will be a sham. There has always been some fraud in the the election process, but computers allowed it to be done on an industrial scale easily. Computer data is so easy to manipulate that there will never be a real election again wherever this technology is applied.

Corrupt dysfunctional incompetent city where honest people have no real representation. Result: Corrupt dysfunctional incompetent election where honest people get cheated. Now they will elect a mayor that mirrors the city. The mayor will be corrupt incompetent and dysfunctional with no regard to NYC's citizens. All that remains now is who will be selected. No doubt, NYC's next mayor will be selected, not elected. Elections are for chumps with these people. Who is most likely to come out on top once the dust settles? My money is on the biggest lefty of the lot with the best contacts. Anyone have Obama, Hillary, or perhaps Biden on speed dial? The Democrats don't even try to disguise it anymore. They put their corruption on display for everyone to see daring anybody to stop them all the while knowing nobody will. Its the Democrat leftist way.

Democrats have been cheating for decades. They even cheat against each other in their primaries. We know they are going to cheat. Many states are waking up about their cheating and attempting to close the gaps in their election laws, so now you hear the dems screaming bloody murder and attempting to change the law so those in federal government can control all state laws (against what the constitution says) because they know they can't win elections without cheating. Rats! If I could use stronger words for these communists I would.

Duplicitous, lying, corrupt NYC officials from Eric Adams on up know EXACTLY how the Board of Election is run and staffed. They are the people that put those hacks there. Hacks do the dirty work of all of the NYC pols, which is why they were hired in the first place. And the likes of all of the local newspapers from the NY Times to even my beloved NY Post, also know EXACTLY what the history of the Board and it's staff has been for decades. Their shock at "discovering" the BOE's incompetence and corruption is as sickening as is the pols'. But no one, not a single so-called Good Government organization has ever confronted this issue. Because, ladies and gentlemen, pols, newspapers and good government groups are all perfectly comfortable with fraudulent elections. As long as the fraud goes their way. The good thing about what has happened in NYC is that as Democrats are being gouged by their own fraud and processes, the argument that there was no fraud in the Trump election gets weakened substantially. Sadly, what also gets weakened is trust in our electoral system. Another pillar of our great Republic continues to crumble.

Headline correction should be 135,000 test ballots "mistakenly" added... No mistake, this is an old Philadelphia trick where you load thousands of ballots into the machines the night before the election. In 2004 the machines in many Philly precincts had 28,000 votes for Gore in them when they were delivered, after all, it's the Democrat way. HR1/ SB1 are their plan to nationalize cheating so no Republican is ever elected again.

A federal judge has ruled that a provision in President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 relief bill limiting state tax cuts is unconstitutional, handing a victory to Republicans. Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost had filed a federal lawsuit against the Treasury Department and its secretary, Janet Yellen, alleging that a provision in the $1.9 trillion Democratic spending package that prohibits states from using relief funds to offset tax cuts or credits “directly or indirectly” is unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Douglas Cole issued the permanent injunction against what Yost dubbed the “tax mandate” on Thursday, ruling that the provision exceeds the federal government’s power over states. “The federal government has to stay in their lane,

When Biden saw Waters, he said, “Senator, I hope. You think I’m kidding.

Vice President Mike Pence may be in the doghouse with conservatives but no one can say there were stories that he was a bad boss or that his office was chaotic, mismanaged, or incompetent. Things are different with Kamala Harris. According to an article in Politico, Harris’s office sounds like the real-life version of Veep, the HBO political satire that focused on the stupid, self-centered, and vicious Selina Meyer, a Vice President whose office was filled with slavish gatekeepers and self-centered staff, all of whom were incompetent. The story rings true. What's more interesting is contemplating why Democrats are going after Harris.
