Voodoo crap in Florida

MIAMI (Reuters) - A Florida state senator accused a campaign worker
for an opponent of using voodoo to sabotage a ballot recount in their
election race, police said Tuesday. Monday's vote recount confirmed
the candidate making the allegations, Republican state Sen. Alberto
Gutman, won re-election Nov. 3 by 301 votes. While election
supervisors counted the ballots, Gutman called police complaining
someone covered his car with splotches of a thick beige substance.
Gutman described the splotches as "voodoo crap" and accused a
campaign worker for Democratic candidate Agustin Garcia of marring
the car in a ritual aimed at putting a hex on the ballot count. See
