Hoffman Manages to Blame ACORN for His Loss

Give it up, Mr. Hoffman. Swallow your loss and move on.

Proving once and for all that he really was the only true Republican in the race, the loser in the election to represent New York's 23rd District is now sobbing that ACORN cost him the election. And apparently they pelted the teabagger candidate with nuts until he was "forced to concede."

With his prospect of winning the 23rd Congressional District race now almost zero, Conservative Party candidate Douglas L. Hoffman suggested Wednesday in a letter that “ACORN, the unions and the Democratic Party” “tampered” with results to deny him victory.

Mr. Hoffman provided no evidence to support his claims, but asked fellow conservatives to send donations his way to “ensure every vote is counted.”

Jerry O. Eaton, Jefferson County Republican elections commissioner, called Mr. Hoffman's assertion “absolutely false.”

Outraged teabaggers can go to Hoffman's website and see no evidence surface -- although the URL is pretty convincing.

Give it up, Mr. Hoffman. Swallow your loss and move on.
