Exclusive! Hillary Clinton challenges Voting Results

by Ricky Sprague, exclusively for PCMR Newswire:

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton's campaign has expressed its intention to possibly challenge the results of voting.

My sources tell me that aides to Clinton have stated that they were alarmed by the fact that their candidate has fallen behind in the Democratic delegate count, and that she hasn't actually won the nomination. Specifically, Clinton aides questioned the idea that Barack Obama could be getting more votes than she is.

Clinton political director Guy Cecil has asked party officials to explain to him, in writing, why Barack Obama should have more delegates than Clinton. "If it's simply a matter of Senator Obama getting more votes than Senator Clinton, or being more popular, then that's something we need to seriously look at challenging."

He went on to add that the campaign would consider filing a lawsuit against the Democratic party if Mrs Clinton didn't win the nomination, but quickly added that the campaign had no intention of considering filing any lawsuits, and denied making such a statement.

"Now you're putting words in my mouth," he is alleged to have said.
