Doug Hoffman Unconcedes NY-23 Race

While on Glenn Beck’s radio show yesterday conservative candidate Doug Hoffman unconceded.

Hoffman appeared on conservative commentator 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 "unconceding" and Hoffman replied, "If that’s possible, yes."
This all comes about because last week after a recanvasing of the district, Democrat bill Owen’s lead shrank from 5,335 votes to 3,026 votes with another 10,000 absentee ballots left to be counted.

On election night I thought Hoffman was a little too quick with the conceding.  This is New York after all. Election shenanigans are nothing new.  The Hill reports that  even with the uncounted ballots, Hoffman has little chance. Plus there is still that business of what to do about Bill Owens who was already sworn in. 

If by some chance Hoffman was to win, what is the procedure to remove Owens?  If that procedure is something that requires the Democrats to acquiesce in some manner, then forget about it.  They are completely tone deaf to the will of the people.

I don't think that Owens has been certified as the winner yet, Clifton.

I'm not so sure that they are tone deaf.... the pink slip campaign has sent nearly five million messages to Congress, delivered by Fedex, with more on the way. I'd certainly love to know the stats on which members of Congress are receiving more.

It will be fantastic if somehow Hoffman overtakes Owens in the vote. I seriously doubt that he would then be removed by the Democrats so Hoffman could serve. The Democratic Party isn't very. Democratic, that is.
