New York, NY - Claiming a handful of deceased voters have been mailed absentee ballots for today’s special election, an attorney for Republican congressional candidate Bob Turner told ABC News that he has obtained a court order to seal all paper ballots in New York’s 9th Congressional District, pending judicial review.

“We found five dead people, confirmed, who were mailed absentee ballots,” said Turner’s attorney, Grant Lally. “Some of these people have been dead for years.”

Lally said he also knows of at least one person who came to the Turner campaign claiming he or she had been sent an absentee ballot, even though the voter had not filled out an application.

“They just got it in the mail from the Board of Elections,” Lally told ABC News two hours before the polls closed Tuesday in the tight race between Turner and Democratic state assemblyman David Weprin.

“Either it is a massive failure at the Board of Elections, or someone is fraudulently filing absentee applications,” Lally said, suggesting that the number of absentee ballots known to have been sent to deceased voters may just be “the tip of the iceberg.”

“This is an indication that there may be widespread voter fraud going on,” he said.

Calls and emails to Weprin’s campaign were not returned.

It's not challenging the results, it's just challenging the absentee ballots!!! This is an example of how you can say the same thing in 2 ways, and it should actually mean 2 opposite things...

For some strange reason the voting machine was broken here on Elmwood Aves. and Ocean Parkway when I voted this morning. They used paper ballots instead. Later when my wife went to vote it was working already.Turner should get a monitor there to count the paper ballots at nine pm so that the democratic ganovim dont dump the Turner ballot votes.

Maybe they were niftar before Wiener resigned so they would arguably still be eligible to vote.

i am stunned that this kind of cheating is happening in US. in third world countries this is very common, and where i live, if it does not happen, we would be surprised or stunned.

What do the Democrats have to do to lose the Jewish vote? They could outlaw Milah, Shechitah, and mandate religious tolerance classes in all schools (like Quebec), and the Jews would still vote for them!

It is not a surprise if you paid attention to the 08 election. There was a polling place in Philly where a black panther chaya was intimidating folks to vote for Obama & that the white folk shouldn't vote. Of course Idiot Holder who leads our "impartial" justice department wouldn't prosecute.

Its there & we need to be alert about it because the libs want to have their boy obama elected again. They are still upset The Tree Huger & The Traitor weren't elected in '00 & '04 respectively.

Don't forget about the man who admitted voting 60 or was it 70 times in 08? I don't like those people who are paid to sign up voters- it takes 10 seconds to do it on your own- go to a post office and fill in your info! no one should be paid to register as it only invites corruption.
BTW- love the name "Tree Hugger" for "Internet Creator Wannabe"
