  • You would have loved it had it done it on election night. Let’s just wait and see what happens.

  • no jttoooo, we wouldn’t have loved it had he done it before it was mathmatically obvious that he had lost. Dear God, the bs just doesn’t end with this.

  • Hi Sean,
    Just wanted to know if you have always been a kool-aid drinking liberal moron?

  • To the editor:

    The race in New York’s 1st Congressional District has been a nightmare from the start. First, we had to sit through that ugly dogfight going into the Republican primary. I still can’t believe Randy Altschuler won that fight. At least Chris Cox fished here as a kid. At least George Demos summered here. I’ve seen weeds with deeper roots in the district than Mr. Altschuler.

    Then there were all those relentless attack ads, from both sides, and the unending mail, overflowing out of our mailboxes for months. And the lies, the unbelievable, bare-faced lies that came out of Mr. Altschuler’s camp. I thought Election Day would be the end of it all.

    That was over a month ago, and still this nightmare rages on. I can’t understand why. The more ballots are opened, the more votes go to Tim Bishop. The race may be close, but after weeks and weeks of counting, there’s no denying this pattern.

    It’s time for this nightmare to end. Wake up, Randy. You lost. Better luck in your future endeavors.

  • moron’s can’t do simple math and will rant and rave and make everyone miserable instead of acting honorably.

  • Altschuler is hitting a big LOW and if he even tries to run again in 2012 this FALSE accusation of fraud completely blows his chances (along with the over 10,000 American people who’s jobs he sold to Asia- who will start to REALLY speak out in the next two years about Altschuler’s cruel profit driven activities). I am sure he knows this and is desperate to play any game to try and get elected! Randy you are trying to take away the people’s rights. I know several people who’s VALID affidavit votes you challenged and they are quite ANGRY! You also got Fox False News involved in this with their phony Fraud unit- Fox has no credibility and LIES about everything. Altschuler is challenging ALL the affidavit votes from Stony Brook U and has tried to Block TWICE as much votes as Bishop. This election is clearly over, yet it proves the selfish ambition of Altschuler. This will be made CLEAR if he attempts to run again.
