Tempers Flare at D.C. Board of Elections
No results yet from the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, but there has been a bit of a verbal throwdown between government watchdog Dorothy Brizill and election officials, according to the Post's Stephen Lowman, who is on the scene. Brizill was angered when officials said that they could not bring the dozen or so election observers, including her, to the tabulation room all at once. The officials said space was an issue, but Brizill countered that she had worked out an agreement ahead of time, Lowman said.
Tempers flared, as Brizill grew increasingly animated, which is not the first time the dcwatch.com co-founder has tangled with city officials.
Ultimately, a truce was reached, Lowman reports, as officials agreed to allow the observers into the room on a rotating basis.
