Democrats Cheating Just Enough In NY-1? Bishop Now Leads Altschuler By Fifteen Votes After Absentees Are Counted

The previous count had the challenger, Randy Altschuler, ahead of Democrat incumbent Tim Bishop in NY-1 (eastern Long Island) by around 400 votes.

Now, after the absentees are tallied, surprise surprise, the Democrat pulls just ahead:

After a hectic week of absentee ballot counting Republican Randy Altschuler is now trailing incumbent Democrat Tim Bishop by fifteen (15) votes. We have just the remainder of one town (Brookhaven) left to count with about 48 of 300 election districts in that town already counted plus military ballots that have a deadline of this coming Monday to be logged in. If it remains this close it make take a bit longer to resolve as there are approximately 1,000 contested absentee ballots that will have to be reviewed and decided to either count or toss.

That's from a tipster in a listserv I'm on; I don't know if I'm supposed to use his real name or not.

Corrected: For some reason I got it in my head this was in NY-23 (which I think was actually the Owens race, the one Doug Hoffman kind of spoiled.) But it's NY-1.

More Cheating! Two whole voting machines "discovered" in Buffalo, where a Republican just coincidentally is leading his Democrat incumbent rival by 821 votes.

Gee, I wonder if the Democrat will come out +1000 from those machines.
