Real Losers Do Real Things
Republican Senate Candidate Joe Miller up in Alaska must be really desperate. In his recount with Lisa Murkowski who was the write in candidate last week (and who is on track to win), Miller’s campaign is challenging ballots that have the letter “L” in Lisa’s name written in cursive.
Via the Associated Press:
Miller’s campaign disputed the charge, saying observers are simply challenging votes that don’t meet the strict letter of the law – including those with minor misspellings of Murkowski’s name or those with legibility or penmanship issues.
Shortly after the second day of write-in ballot counting began in the race, a Miller observer challenged a vote for Murkowski that appeared to have her name spelled and printed correctly, though the “L” in “Lisa” was in cursive handwriting.
In some parts I believe the term for this behavior is b**cha**ness.
