This 2004 election in Congressional District 28 will be talked about for years. In the recount of the photo finish between Congressman Ciro Rodriguez, and challenger Henry Cuellar of Laredo, votes have mysteriously appeared.
Here's a fine example reported by Rebeca Rodriguez at midnight this morning on the Express-News website:
Cuellar has pulled into a 201-vote lead over Congressman Rodriguez, who says he's filing a lawsuit because this smells like fraud and vote-tampering.
It doesn't get a heck of a lot better than this. It's up there the 1948 case, in which 202 mysteriously-found votes in Ballot Box 13 in Duval County made LBJ a Senator.
Where's my popcorn? This's worth watching. Is this going to turn out to be a stolen election? So far all it lacks in sleaziness is Janet Jackson for the halftime show.
