Well, it looks as if Doug Hoffman, who this week unconceded
the apparently settled NY-23 Congressional race
when he gained votes
on a recanvass, and then charged that ACORN was trying to steal it from him
, has failed again. The Watertown Daily Times
says the Board of Elections has counted enough absentee ballots now that "Rep. William L. Owens could lose all 3,072 absentee ballots left to be counted and still win the race
At least the last minute fundraising based on accusations of fraud has probably left him in good shape for his inevitably rematch with Owens, just as it prepared Al Gore for his successful challenge in 2004. Tea Party on, dudes!
