Dems: GOP delaying 37th state Senate District ballot counting
The race for the 37th state Senate District is still undecided a month after Election Day and the two campaigns are starting to accuse each other of delaying the counting process.
Lawyers for both state Sen. Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) and her Republican challenger, Bob Cohen, were in county court today, with the Oppenheimer campaign accusing Cohen's campaign of trying to delay the counting process.
Oppenheimer's team says that last night, Republicans counted a total of 18 votes in four hours in a veritable sit-in strike.
The Republicans claim that there has been voter fraud and that thousands of ballots are unaccounted for.
The Democrats and the Republicans filed so many objections last night that they both said they were unable to get through the counting process.
The chief judge of the state has issued an order that the counting must be done by Monday.
Oppenheimer currently leads Cohen by 430 votes.
