Perennial mayoral candidate Tom Barrow, who successfully got frontrunner Mike Duggan removed from the primary election ballot this summer, has returned with claims of a massive plot to defraud voters.

Barrow filed a petition today for a manual recount of the Aug. 6 primary election, suggesting write-in candidate Mike Duggan’s campaign team perpetrated “a complex scheme using hundreds and hundreds” of people to overlook fraudulent votes.
Barrow, who garnered just 4% of the vote and demanded a recount
in the 2009 mayoral election, contends Duggan’s campaign paid volunteers to overlook “thousands and thousands” of write-ins with identical handwriting.
“The ballots were counted as valid votes when they were bogus and fraudulent,” Barrow charged.
One of Barrow’s claims may sound familiar. He claims a seedy group, http://www.citizensforfairelections.com/, was illegally gathering volunteers to monitor election results. It’s the same group that he claimed in November 2009 was spotted taking “large bags and backpacks” to the absentee counting station.
Duggan’s campaign quickly dismissed the claims as nonsense.
