Shocker: Obama Got No Votes In Harlem?

From the inimitable New York Post:



February 17, 2008 — Barack Obama’s primary-night results were strikingly underrecorded in several districts around the city – in some cases leaving him with zero votes when, in fact, he had pulled in hundreds, the Board of Elections said yesterday.

Unofficial primary results gave Obama no votes in nearly 80 districts, including Harlem’s 94th and other historically black areas – but many of those initial tallies proved to be wildly off the mark, the board said.

In some districts getting a recount, the senator from Illinois is even closer to defeating Hillary Clinton.

Initial results in the 94th, for example, showed a 141-0 sweep for Hillary Clinton, but the recount changed the tally to 261-136.

As yet, none of the results have been certified, but a ballot-by-ballot canvassing of all voting machines has begun, a board spokesperson said. Many of the mistakes were chalked up to human error — and some Clinton tallies were wrong as well. In several congressional districts she was shown as having received votes when in fact she got hundreds, Boe said.

Brooklyn City Councilman Charles Barron called the understated figures “outrageous.”

“I think this is an all-out effort to stop a campaign that is about to make history and render America’s first black president,” he said. “We need some kind of independent or federal agency to investigate this.”

I agree with Mr. Barron.

We must all demand a federal investigation and Congressional hearings. And if they do not occur, Joe Biden must cut off federal aid to New York City.

A young man, calling himself Tony B. Conscious, yells his support of Illinios Sen. Barack Obama before a Democratic caucus at Seattle Central Community College in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Saturday, Feb. 9, 2008.

No justice, no peace.

Many of the mistakes were chalked up to human error…

Yes. The Hillary hireling union thugs working the polls were “over trained.”
