5 Republicans, 1 Democrat criticized for conceding races

No, no, no. It isn't a conservative group doing the criticizing. According to CNSNews, it's the leftist group Velvet Revolution.

( - At least six candidates in the midterm elections should not have conceded last week, according to a group that monitored the elections for voting machine fraud and disenfranchisement.

Velvet Revolution, which calls itself a "network of more than 120 progressive organizations," criticized several candidates who conceded defeat before allegations of voter fraud had been fully investigated.

Among the six candidates it argued should not have conceded were five Republicans: Sens. George Allen (Va.), Conrad Burns (Mont.), Jim Talent (Mo.) and Rick Santorum (Pa.) and California secretary of state candidate Bruce McPherson.

The group also criticized Democratic Rep. Harold Ford, Jr., who conceded to Republican Robert Corker in their race for the U.S. Senate seat in Tennessee.

Is this far leftist group trying to set up a claim that it's actually a fair, bipartisan organzation, or are they just trying to get publicity?
