The magic of mail-in ballots, this time coupled with a Democrat judge, has erased a 28,000 vote lead for Republican Claudia Tenney and given her Democrat opponent the win.
It happened in a New York Congressional election for the 22nd district in which the Tenney, had the giant lead on the incumbent Democrat Rep. Anthony Brindisi on Election night, The New York Post reported.
But now, after mail-in ballots were counted and a judge personally reviewed “spoiled” ballots, the Democrat has a 12 or 13 vote lead.
“In NY-22, the Democrat incumbent was trailing by almost 30K on election night,” Hot Air editor Jazz Shaw said on Twitter. “The mail-in ballots got him close. Then a Democrat judge from Syracuse ruled he would personally ‘review’ all of the spoiled ballots that had been rejected. Guess what happened next.”
“The judge miraculously ‘found’ enough ballots that he felt were okay and the incumbent now ‘leads’ by 13 votes,” he said.

“This process and the integrity of our election are critical to our republic. This judicial review has been fair, open, honest, and transparent, and I remain confident that voters’ voices will be heard,” Rep. Brindisi said. “In January, I will be sworn in and continue to work with both parties and stand up to anyone on behalf of all of New York’s 22nd district.”
