A political bombshell was detonated in Rensselaer County, with explosive allegations about forgeries and fraud by Democrat operatives and elected officials and their allies in the Working Families Party.
The Times Union had a major story on the emerging scandal Saturday and by mid-morning, radio and TV were on the case. The affidavits were gathered as part of a case by Republicans regarding the WFP line, and an investigation revealed a stunning level of abuse.
One observer told the Times Union the allegations emerging against Democrats and WFP operatives are "unprecedented". As many as three dozen absentee ballots could have been forged or falsified, with dozens of affidavits from wronged voters already collected.
Behind the scenes, Democrats are scrambling for cover and already pointing fingers. And the fingers are being pointed at some very big names in the party, meaning the story – and the headaches for Democrats – will only be growing.
We could go on and on, but it is probably better for the story – and the facts – to speak for themselves.
