Reading the papers about the voter fraud allegations in Troy involving absentee ballots in the Working Families Party seems inconsequential when compared to what happened in North Greenbush in the 2005 primaries.
But why let us tell you about it when you can read Mark Evers affidavit burying Lou Desso, Leon Fiacco and Bob Ashe. So what's the challenged ballot count in Troy, 50? Here, these candidates together personally got 120 absentees in North Greenbush. When they were opened, they didn't mirror the machine counts which Evers and his running mates Kern and Michaels won. Just the opposite, the extreme opposite. All 120 ballots were for Ashe, Desso, Fiacco and the GOP.
In North Greenbush, more people voted absentee in these primaries than on the machines! It must be the water, right? All these people just had to get out of town that day and rather than call the Board of Elections for a ballot application, they must have called Bob, Lou and Leon!
