    The image of the map showing Coakley winning the special election is at the link. The excuse is that this was just a software demonstation gone awry, but it should be quite interesting to compare it to the actual results. The Globe will have trouble convincing people that the fix wasn't in if the results match this map.

    Boston Globe calls election for Martha Coakley?
    Published Jan 19 2010, 12:29 PM by Carly Carioli 4

    Boston.com briefly put up this map of the final results of today's election -- some 8 hours before polls closed!

    As you can see, over 2 million people voted, with Coakley eking out a 50-49 victory.

    The map was fully interactive, so you could roll over and get town-by-town results -- above we show Coakley taking Cohasset 56-43.

    They took the map down shortly after I pointed it out on Twitter. But not before we Phoenix troublemakers got the screen shots!

    Now, if the final numbers end up matching these, the Republicans may really have reason to question the integrity of the process...

    Really?

    LOL

    what a bunch of douche bags.

    any asshole with half a brain can produce a map that will closely resemble the final results.

    The OP mentions a possible conspiracy and CrusaderFrank utters another one of his nitwitticisms calling for a tea bagging party?

    Why is it the same people who take anything they can to attempt to prove foul play in elections are the same people who yell the loudest when liberals bring up the same things (Diebold, Florida 2000, Ohio 2004, etc)
