Hundreds of ballots rejected in Bucks County

Thursday, October 28th, 2010



With a tight Congressional race on the line, the Bucks County Board of Elections is coming under fire. The Board has rejected more than 600 absentee ballot requests they say were not completed correctly.

Democratic Congressman Patrick Murphy, beat Republican Mike Fitzpatrick by only about 1,000 votes, to win the seat four years ago.

With the same candidates battling for the seat this time, Murphy’s accusing the Board of Elections of abusing its power.

“Republican operatives have resorted to Florida-style Bush era tactics to disenfranchise Democrats and try to steal this election. The GOP Board has rejected six Democratic applications for every one Republican application…They’re messin with the wrong paratrooper and I promise you we are not gonna let them get away with it.”

Murphy’s opponent, Republican Mike Fitzpatrick, disagrees.

“I know that the professionals who work within the Bucks County Board of Elections…They have flawlessly run elections in the past and it wasn’t until Congressman Murphy showed up in Bucks County with his Chicago-style politics and his hard-hitting electioneering, that any question has arisen.”

The board of elections says it has rejected far more absentee ballot applications this year than is typical.

    Why aren’t you reporting the whole story? Murphy’s campaign Staffer, John Persico is the person registered to the post office box where these fraudulent ballots had to be mailed. Murphy’s campaign staff is directly involved in this fraud. The Bucks County D.A. and the U.S. Attorney’s office is investigating. The hearing is tomorrow in the Bucks County Courthouse 9:30am. Murphy is toast…it’s no coincidence that unions set up shop for GOTV in Bristol and the p.o. box for this fraud was also in Bristol.
