I have to believe that election officials in Nassau County, New York are making a point of dispelling stereotypes. The South, after all, has a reputation as the region where life moves at a leisurely pace. As Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, a Democratic rising star (or former rising star?), fights for his political life, the Long Island jurisdiction is out to prove that it can dilly-dally with the best of them.
Anyways, that's my only explanation for why three weeks after election day Nassau County still hasn't managed to count the measly 8,000 or so absentee that were cast.
Lately, Suozzi has pulled a little bit closer, as the Long Island Press reports:
Nassau Republican Legis. Ed Mangano's lead against Democratic Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi has narrowed to just 122 votes following the end of counting on Nov. 23, according to the latest ballot figures from the county Board of Elections.
The latest swing reflects ballots counted from New York State Assembly District 13, known as a Democratic stronghold. That district includes Plainview, Woodbury, Old Bethpage and Glen Cove, where Suozzi served consecutive terms as mayor and his cousin recently won re-election as such. It's also Suozzi's hometown.
