VIDEO: More Election Chaos , Dems Controlled Cities Are Turning Into Venezuela
The New York City mayoral Democratic primary has turned into chaos.
Officials have admitted that 135,000 votes were added to the tally mistakenly.
The discovery was made after poll leader Eric Adams questioned the integrity of the election after he won by a mere two points over Kathryn Garcia.
After 11 rounds of ranked-choice vote tallying Adams led former Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia 51.1% to 48.9%.
Without counting absentee ballots, Adams led by a mere 15,908 votes.
Adams questioned the ranking after his campaign believed they found “irregularities.”
The New York City Board of Elections believes that most of the 135,000 votes went to candidates that are no longer running however, Adams was a recipient of some of the “test” votes.
“Today’s mistake by the Board of Elections was unfortunate. It is critical that New Yorkers are confident in their electoral system, especially as we rank votes in a citywide election for the first time,” Adams said in response.
Garcia said the news is “deeply troubling” and the board of elections needs to be “more transparent” and give a “complete explanation.”
AOC backed candidate Maya Wiley placed third and was has been knocked out of the race however due to the complications is hoping to jump back in.
“Today, we have once again seen the mismanagement that has resulted in a lack of confidence in results, not because there is a flaw in our election laws, but because those who implement it have failed too many times,” Wiley said.
Conservatives are calling for massive ballot audits around the country after the fiasco in NYC, pointing out that Trump only lost the White House by 43,000 votes spread out in 3 different states.
The NYC Board of Elections has reported that official results will not be released until mid-July as they sort out the confusion.
Let me get this straight? You can be off by 135,000 votes in a New York City mayoral primary alone but if someone loses the White House by less than 45,000 across multiple states in a presidential election you can’t have any questions.
Seems legit… if you live in China. https://t.co/W5tEH0uIi0

If this were Georgia, Democrats would spend all day every day talking about the systemic racism of the system obviously designed to stop the election of a black man to the mayoralty. https://t.co/CQgMWYPd7d
