Skip to comments.Gary Mayor Predicts Possible Indiana Shocker
Posted on 05/06/2008 8:08:18 PM PDT by rdl6989
As the fate of a nailbiter Indiana primary -- and possibly the course of the Democratic race -- hung on his city, Gary Mayor Rudy Clay said just now that it might take a while yet to finish counting the vote in Lake County, which includes Gary, and said that his city had turned out so overwhelmingly for Barack Obama that it might just be enough to close the gap with Hillary Rodham Clinton.
"Let me tell you, when all the votes are counted, when Gary comes in, I think you're looking at something for the word to see," Clay, an Obama supporter, said in a telephone interview from Obama's Gary headquarters. "I don't know what the numbers are yet, but Gary has absolutely produced in large numbers for Obama here."
Clay said the results were late coming in from Lake County because of the large numbers of absentee ballots that had to be counted -- about 11,000. Under local practice, all of the cartridges from voting machines in Gary and nearby East Chicago are first collected at the local airport before being driven to the county headquarters to be tallied with the results from the rest of the county, he said. He said there were major technical problems holding up the count.
"It takes a little time. We want to be sure that every vote is counted fair and right," he said. "I just talked to the director out there and they are working like junkyard dogs to get that done as soon as possible. They are taking some time but I told them to do it right. That's what taking the time."

Looks like my worst fears might be confirmed.
Looks like the fix is in.
Smells dirty to me.
Something is rotten in Gary.
“I don’t know what the numbers are yet, but Gary has absolutely produced in large numbers for Obama here.”
Does this sentence sound extremely odd to anyone else out there?
I’m glad its Obama,we finally get to dump the Clintons.
If Hillary goes out looking like the shocked, disenfranchised and hurt victim, she’ll play that card for the next 4 years.
Something for the world to see? Oh oh.
Look, I’m no Hillary supporter - far from it - but I think this a preview of what we can expect in November.
And I thought the GOP was supposed to be the party of corruption.
Wouldn't that be delicious?!
Chaos at it's finest!!
Sounds like voter fraud to me. They have been waiting to see how many votes were needed to overcome before announcing, can’t make a mistake and let Hillary actually win!
In OTHER WORDS, They Are holding out to see EXACTLY how many votes they need to send in...
Gary loves Barry.
Liberals steal elections. Whether they are named Clinton or Obama.
The math is the following 200 precincts in Gary with about a 180 vote margin in each plus those literally absentee ballot (like 10 voters living in a vacant lot) will add up to a squeaker.
Trouble is Rudy Clay mayor of Gary ain't too good at math and probably did not manufacture enough to put Obama over the top...
Some CNN tool (Jeffrey Toobin I think?) was just talking about how suspicious it is that all of Gary’s votes are being held back while they “count”
Just listened to Lanny Davis babble his desperate Clintonista spin — wow, that guy is the most devoted Clinton whore, a man devoid of character and decency, a worm crawling out of the Clinton cesspool
“They are taking some time but I told them to do it right.”
Uh...how does he define “right”?
“Right” as in proper, or “right’ as in desired outcome?
