Marsha wins! – Boston Globe

The Boston Globe put up a page showing Coakley beating Scott Brown in a close election gaining 50% of the vote to 49% with 1% going to the independent.
We’re trying to investigate how they managed to do this with the polls not closing for several more hours.  No comment was available from the State Media.  The Boston Globe, part of the NY Times company referred all calls to Rahm Emanuel’s office and Democratic Party Senate Committee Chair Sen. Robert Menendez.
(No, we aren’t that good in photoshop.)
UPDATE: 7:15 – The Boston Herald, competitor of the Globe reported, “Bob Powers, vice president of communications for the Globe, blamed the goof on the Associated Press. Here’s his statement:

“AP was testing an election data feed to its Massachusetts clients. During corresponding tests at our end, the feed of AP’s hypothetical test data was inadvertently posted for a few minutes on a single subsection page within our site. As soon as the error was discovered, it was removed. We regret the mishap.”

– Marsha’s campaign held a press conference at 5:00 pm (no one carried live) claiming there were ballots with Scott Brown’s name already entered.  The memo released to the press was dated yesterday.  The plan now seems to be to stop Scott Brown from taking the “People’s Seat” for as long as possible.

Da Horsey in a private email to the big green vegetable and other Hoboken residents has gone on record with a horse sense prediction of a 5% or better victory for Scott Brown.

The Boston Globe map showing Martha Coakley defeating Scott Brown is apparently hitting a lot of searches nationally.  We are getting visits now from Coast to Coast and states all over in-between.  Welcome fellow Americans. The Republic yet lives!
