Jeffrey Toobin on CNN has invoked Chicago’s infamous political culture about a half-dozen times by now in discussing his disgust with the absence of any vote totals from Lake County, Indiana, as of 10:30 p.m.
Here’s what the Northwest Times is live-blogging:
“With Hillary Clinton’s statewide lead under 40,000, the pending results from Lake County loom large.
“While Clinton reportedly led voting in cities like Hammond, Whiting and East Chicago, Gary Mayor Rudy Clay is indicating a huge margin in favor of Obama in his city.
“‘It’s very lopsided,’ Clay said, pointing to a hand-written list of precinct results.
According to his numbers, in most districts Clinton’s turnout in the city of Gary was near non-existent. One district saw 126 voters turn out for Obama, while only four voted for Clinton.
Says Clay: “The Gary people took care of business.”
From the Washington Post: “In March, Clay predicted the race would come down to Gary, telling the Northwest Indiana and Illinois Times that tonight on CNN, ‘They are going to point at Indiana and say Hillary Clinton is leading by one point but Gary ain’t come in yet.'”
