Chuckie Schumer Has a Tantrum

These sanctimonious liberal Democrats like to pretend they care about the little people and the working class. Except when they're inconvenienced. Then they act like obnoxious boors.
Apparently even Sen. Chuck Schumer isn't immune to the pitfalls of the new voting system.

What the hElmo is going on with these voting machines?

A party insider told me Schumer showed up at his polling place, P.S. 321 in Park Slope, Brooklyn, at 5:55 a.m.

"They don't open the polling place until 6:10... They can't figure out how to open the machine and he is, like, screaming at the staff that he wants to vote," the insider said.
What a putz. Imagine the tantrum he'd have if he actually had someone running against him.
Another source said, "First, the site opened late. Second, the room was in a different location. Third, there were only 2 machines, and workers told him there were supposed to be 8. And 4th, the machines did not boot-up on time."

There was some dispute about whether the senior senator had to vote by emergency or regular ballot, but his office says he was (finally) able to vote by regular ballot.
Gee, I hope that 15-minute delay he suffered didn't wreak havoc on his press conference schedule.
