Possible issue with absentee ballots in Bpt.
August 10, 2010 at 7:04 pm by Keila Torres

BRIDGEPORT — Republican Theresa Pavia, the endorsed candidate running against Linda Grace for the Republican Registrar of Voters seat, says she hears the machine that counts absentee ballots, located in the 2nd floor of McLevy Hall, was not programmed to count Beardsley School ballots.

Pavia, who was fired from her job as assistant registrar several months ago, said whenever she calls to inquire about this and other potential problems she has heard about at Bridgeport polling places, the registrar staff hangs up on her.

Democratic Registrar of Voters Santa Ayala said her office doesn’t program the machines. A private company does that through a special card fed into the machine.

“If Beardsley School is not on the card, it will be hand counted,” Ayala said. “If, for whatever reason, a ballot does not go through, it goes into the auxiliary bin and it would be hand counted.”

He can't do magic is the media doesn't even force a debate.

This is the first time he ran for anything. He learned a lot, and I won't be surprised if he gives it another shot in 2012. He will have experience, previous voters, and possibly a worse economic situation which makes people look for somewhat different.

But not much. Linda is at 48% now, so if that holds up, he would be at 50% had Simmons dropped out. At least 10 percent of Simmons voters would've gone for Linda, and that would've sealed the deal. Simmons was actually good because he debated Schiff and gave Linda at least a little bit of negative publicity.

No.

If you want Peter to run for Senate in 2012 for Lieberman's seat, do you want Linda's wall of money to come back to haunt Peter in 2012? The wall of money can't come back until 2016 if she becomes a Senator

The country also can't afford another yes vote for Obama's Supreme court picks. Blumenthal is a sure yes vote.

Peter was drafted by the liberty movement. He gave a full year of his life and a million dollars of his fortune to the cause as a result. And a great many abandoned Peter when it looked like it might be a tough fight. Will he run again, will he devote another year and another million, knowing we won't support him to the full? I would advise him against it. My advice to Peter at this point is to devote himself to protecting those people he can. He gave the country, and the liberty movement, it's chance. He has already given more than virtually any of us. For us to ask more of him, especially after we abandoned him, is pretty darn petty of us I think.

Thanks! That was his position that I tried to recall that was amiss, but I couldn't remember it.

Isn't this a Peter Schiff elections result thread? Is the Schiff forum morphing into the Ken Buck Forums now? :D

Congratulations everyone. Peter did very well against two much better known, and in the case of McMahon, better funded candidates. I think the best approach going forward is to continue the bridge-building between Conn Republicans and the Liberty Movement. Cheers!

Peter was drafted by the liberty movement. He gave a full year of his life and a million dollars of his fortune to the cause as a result. And a great many abandoned Peter when it looked like it might be a tough fight. Will he run again, will he devote another year and another million, knowing we won't support him to the full? I would advise him against it. My advice to Peter at this point is to devote himself to protecting those people he can. He gave the country, and the liberty movement, it's chance. He has already given more than virtually any of us. For us to ask more of him, especially after we abandoned him, is pretty darn petty of us I think.

Peter will do what he wants to do, and that may mean that he'll run again or it may mean that he won't. But the outcome of this race should not discourage him. Next time out he will do better. He will have better name-recognition in Ct and nationwide. He will have more experience at campaigning and running a campaign. He will probably be able to raise more money. He has far, far more contacts within the Republican Party. If he runs in 2012 he has a good chance to be the Republican nominee. Lieberman will be vulnerable. He won't have a major party behind him. His pro-war stance will likely be more of a vulnerability then. The RNC won't be helping him, and he won't have a friend in the White House as he did in the 2006 campaign.

Call me a pessimist all you want, but I'm not seeing how 23% means the liberty movement is growing in CT...

He didn't campaign on any social issues, just fiscal ones. The majority of republicans AGREE with us on most fiscal issues (except war on drugs....or the wars, which Schiff doesn't even agree with us on)

It's good that 22% of those who voted picked Schiff for his financial experience, but I'd hardly call that a win for the liberty movement.


HOWEVER, Great job Schiff. Frankly he'd do much better next time around for many reasons.....much more name recognition, and people will actually believe he can win.

Although I'm thinking after a while the phone banking does more bad than good....people were complaining that they'd come home to find 18 recorded messages from candidates phonebanking them. (Schiff wasn't the only one)

It looks like Peter's final tally will be close to 23% which is 8% higher than the recent Q. poll. Good performance all ...
