OSWEGO, NY - Late Thursday, attorneys for the Claudia Tenney and Anthony Brindisi campaigns filed new motions in State Supreme Court in Oswego – primarily objecting to each other’s previous motions.

Brindisi’s campaign says the Tenney’s campaign’s previous motion to not count the challenged ballots that were not properly recorded – by sticky notes or spreadsheets – is “inappropriate and unjustifiable.” Brindisi’s campaign says the court has a right and an obligation to fix any mistakes made by a board of elections.

Tenney’s campaign says the Brindisi campaign was not specific in its objections to certain ballots, and the Brindisi campaign did not properly file counterclaims to Tenney’s lawsuit.

Tenney’s campaign cites the 2000 Bush v. Gore case and says Brindisi’s motions would violate the 14th Amendment by treating voters differently depending on where they live and how they voted.

Brindisi wants the 55 recently-discovered Chenango County early voting ballots to be opened and inspected publicly. Tenney ask for that motion to be denied, saying a public session would create a health crisis because of COVID.

Republican challenger Claudia Tenney leads incumbent Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi by a slim margin of 12 votes as of last report on November 30. The case returns to State Supreme Court in Oswego for review by Justice Scott DelConte Monday afternoon.
