Let me get this straight? The Republican registrar calls the Democrats out on a tent intimidating voters on the sidewalk, but at another school the Republican tent is on the sidewalk too. I would think unless the tents are required a certain distance from the school no one should have a tent. Maybe Mr. Wells should be on the look out! I’m glad this election is over!!

Wondering if the story by NoN on the Duff challenger played any role in being asked to leave the Republican party?

According to the NYT, SOS Merrill said “thousands” of ballots were “wet” and needed “Hair dryers” and “hand counts” in “back room.”

And I read Merrill laughed with impunity about this.

Is anyone else shocked by this? Not a word from CT GOP.

Remember, Malloy was TWICE elected with less than 1% margins under a cloud of voting irregularities yet nothing was changed in our voting system.

The dems made it worse with fraud enabling same day registration and ridiculous no photo ID rules.

I thought Connecticut Yankees were supposed to be smart. They ain’t.

Lets get the truth out there. I made NO comment on the tent structure. Period. I have a police case report of someone violating State Election law. NOT myself.
I did warn ALL CANDIDATES NOT to block the entrance to the polling sites – again State Law.
I also have photos that will be sent to Election Enforcement.
FOLLOW the Law and there will not be a problem with Election officers.
Please note: I did not make the State Election Laws but- yes I FOLLOW THEM.

I stand by my reporting. I watched Karen Doyle Lyons walk up to Democrats standing under a tent outside Columbus Elementary School, point at the leg of the tent and tell them it had to be moved.
