Bug in the system delaying US poll count is -- a spider

IT wasn't voter fraud that delayed the election count in one US town -- it was a spider.
Rehoboth Town Clerk Kathleen Conti says one of the Massachusetts town's ageing voting machines malfunctioned.
Ms Conti tells 'The Sun Chronicle' of Attleboro that she called a technician, who said a spider web apparently prevented the machine's scanner from counting ballots. The vote count wasn't completed until Wednesday.
