Connecticut Post To Recount Bridgeport Gov. Ballots
BRIDGEPORT, CT (WCBS 880) – Bridgeport put governor-elect Dan Malloy over the top in Connecticut, but starting Monday, several groups will take another look at the ballots.
Listen: Paul Murnane reports.
Bridgeport rejected a requested review earlier this month from the Connecticut Secretary of State on legal grounds.
Now the Connecticut Post — which sought Freedom of Information access to the ballots — and some citizens groups will review the ballots, WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane reported.
Luther Weeks with the CT Citizen Election Audit Coalition is among those on board.
“There’s a lot that can come out of the whole situation. The legislature should probably pay attention,” he said.
Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch said he supports the review and that he was waiting for a report from a panel he appointed to review the election.
“The process is going to be monitored, so if anyone is worried about ballots disappearing, I have significant trust in the Fourth Estate,” he said.
“We don’t anticipate there’s anything more than human error discovered here,” Finch said.
