The latest out of NY-20

20th Congressional District candidate Republican Jim Tedisco submitted a petition to the Dutchess County Supreme Court Thursday asking the judge to declare him the winner of the extremely close special election race, despite the numbers currently being in favor of his opponent, Democrat Scott Murphy.

It’s late. And Kleefeld’s our resident expert on this one. So I’m going to leave open the possibility that this is just a non-controversial procedural move that sounds more ridiculous than it really is. Or, maybe he’s just decided to go all out and ask the judge to declare him the winner even though he got fewer votes.

Thanks to TPM Reader BP for flagging this one for us.
