Late Night Drama in Indiana
Update: Obama won't win Indiana. 98% of Lake County is in, the later votes are for Hillary, it's 65% to 55%. She's still 21,000 votes ahead statewide. 5% of the state is still out, but CNN says Hillary will squeak by in Indiana. More...
Update: Keep in mind, the pro-Obama cities are in for Lake County. It's the cities she won that haven't been reported. As the Mayor of Hammond said, backed up by the NW Indiana Times, Gary, Merrillville, and parts of East Chicago and Munster are the only ones Obama won. Hillary's margins will increase when they report the votes from Crown Point, and the southern towns in the County. (South of I-30.)
Wolf Blitzer also finds the Mayor of Gary incredible and is quizzing him again on why they didn't report the non-absentee ballots. The Mayor of Hammond says the appearance of impropriety is strong.
The Mayor of Hammond, Tom McDermott, is a mensch. He's the best guest on cable tv all night.
First thread on the mysteriously delayed reporting of Lake County votes here.
Warning: It's late, everyone's emotional, but keep it civil and don't insult others, make claims of voter fraud (as opposed to questioning the legitimacy of the process)or post false information. My finger is very quick on the delete key tonight when I see such comments.
Where we left off: Obama has 65% of Lake County, Hillary 35%. John King says 17,000 vote difference statewide between them and Obama could win. 44% of Lake County is in, 95% of statewide vote.
The Mayor of Hammond says every Mayor in Lake County except the Mayor of Gary endorsed Hillary.
Carl Bernstein is again the worst pundit on all three networks. If he doesn't shut up, you'll be watching the results on your own, I'm muting the tv.
Update: I'm listening to the Mayor of Gary, Indiana. I'm not finding him credible at all.
