2008_10_bobama.jpgThe Times Union reports that absentee ballots for Rensselaer County read "Barack Osama" for the Democratic candidate--not Barack Obama. Both the Democratic and Republican commissioners claim it was an "honest mistake" and "typo," the article also points out the skepticism (hello, the b and s keys aren't even that close to each other!). Voters who called to complain are receiving new ballots, but one said, "It's a little suspicious and at least grossly incompetent. If I crossed out the name and wrote in the right spelling my ballot would be invalid." [Via Runnin' Scared]
