Finally, a look inside the madness at the Board of Elections and Ethics headquarters Tuesday night. When LL arrived shortly before 10:30, about a dozen people had gathered, including Ward 2 incumbent Jack Evans, who was poring over the questionable tallies. Within an hour, 50 people were in the board’s lobby and in the hallway, including Evans challenger Cary Silverman and a gaggle of his supporters.

Just before 11 p.m., board spokesperson Dan Murphy appeared to inform folks that the tallies were being examined and news would soon come. About 45 minutes later, everyone was directed downstairs, tot eh One Judiciary Square lobby, for his official statement.
