Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman has "unconceded" in New York's special House election after reports that the vote margin between him and Rep. Bill Owens (D) has narrowed.
Hoffman conceded the race on Election Night after learning he trailed Owens by 5,335 votes. But the Syracuse Post-Standard reported last week that the margin had shrunk to 3,026 votes after recanvassing.Pretty sure the answer to that is going to be no, especially since you conceded and your opponent has been sworn into office. But hey, the Wingers will just shout AL FRANKEN and GORE IN FLORIDA LOL and demand 164 recounts.
Hoffman appeared on conservative commenatator Glenn Beck's radio show this afternoon. Beck asked the him if he would "unconcede.""Yes, if I knew this information at the election night, I would not have conceded,"
Hoffman said. Beck asked him again if he was "uncondeding" and Hoffman replied "If that’s possible, yes."
Feel free to try again in 2010 however. (You know he will. It's possible the legal stupidity might even be over before the next election.)
Meanwhile I have a cold, and I'm going to bed.
