News Flash: Multnomah County Elections basement flooded. Ballots in flux.


The Basement of Multnomah County Elections Office has been flooded. This is where ballots are being examined. The ballots are being moved all around the office.

With nearly 25% of ballots not reporting yet from the county, and a tight race between Jeff Merkley and Gordon Smith this raises serious alarm bells!

    They’re just waiting to determine how many “votes” they need to manufacture to give Merkley a win and defeat M 64.

    Gee, who would have thought some sort of last minute thing like this would have happened? Wow, never in my wildest dreams would I imagine some weird little glitch would happen in Multnomah county if the election was running close.

    Has anyone spotted ACORN Moving and Storage helping them to relocate?

    Who is guarding the ballots in the interim? I suspect the billy club armed black panthers from Philadelphia might be in charge of security since they are done with their intimidation at the polls.

    Computer problems have delayed vote counting in Lane County. As of noon only about half the ballots have been counted.

    “Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.”

    Looks like that quote from an old communist still rings true today.

    Portland votes 3 to 1 Democrat. Smith didn’t loose in Multnomah county since he could never win there. He needed to not be so close in the rest of the state. Smith lost this one outside of Multnomah county, where he had to get a wide margin, but he didn’t.

    The party in the lead would be in the advantage by damaged ballots.. Not the party with the lessor count. That would lead me to believe shenanigans from the R’s

    Oops only the Republican box was flooded. My bad.
