New York's 9th Congressional District special election race for disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner's seat became more interesting today with Republican challenger Bob Turner's demand that the ballots be impounded to thwart any chance of vote fraud, according to The Washington Times.

Times political writer Kerry Picket wrote: "Turner campaign manager E. O'Brien Murray told me this afternoon their campaign is concerned that the close race in New York's 9th CD could very well be tainted by voter fraud from the David Weprin camp, and the Turner campaign does not want to be blind-sided."

"This is all a result of other activity we've seen with the build up to the election as far as absentee ballot issues and potential voter fraud issues are concerned," Picket quoted Murray as saying. "So in anticipation of what might be happening on election day, the best course of action is to have everything impounded tonight as soon as the polls close at nine."
