34th District Williamsburg: Let's go to work

Hey! NOBODY'S trading with ANYBODY. This ain't a goddamn, ####ing city council meeting, you know. Now listen up. There's two ways you can go on this job: my way or the highway. Now what's it gonna be?

The Board of Elections at 345 Adams Street in downtown Brooklyn was buzzing with activity this morning, as attorneys and poll workers hunkered down to count some paper ballots today. Absentees start at 2 PM. As Marty "The Wolf" Connor says, "it's like watching paint dry." I almost imagine Marty was instructing Team Diana, Let's not start ######## each other's ###### just yet.

Sorry, I'm mixing my Tarantino quotes again (but notice the uncanny resemblance between Marty and Lawrence Tierney, above). So far, Diana Reyna picked up 2 votes in the morning counting. There are just over 100 absentee ballots and the margin separating Diana and Maritza Davila is 225. Anyway, the action moves to a warehouse in Red Hook tomorrow at 9 AM where all the voting machines have been stored, for the machine canvass tally. And we all know what happens when you go do official business in a Brooklyn warehouse.

Torture you? That's a good idea. I like that.

We'll just keep torturing you until the vote gets certified.
