Tom Foley's attorney: 'Missing' bag of ballots just discovered

HARTFORD - While Bridgeport officials continue to count ballots to decide who will be the next governor of Connecticut, new allegations have been made by one of Republican candidate Tom Foley's attorneys.

An attorney for Foley claims a bag of missing, uncounted ballots was discovered inside the Registrar of Voters building in Bridgeport.

However, Democrats representing candidate Dan Malloy say those ballots were never missing and called the claims nothing more than a case of political posturing.

Mayor Bill Finch called the allegations into the missing ballot bag entirely incorrect.
