ABC Reports Voting Problems After 'Dancing' Finale

So many viewers voted after Monday's "Dancing With the Stars" finale that they temporarily overwhelmed the show's voting system.
ABC says "a record amount of activity" overloaded its online and telephone voting systems Monday night, and that "some viewers reported experiencing difficulties registering their votes" for the show's finale.
The network said in a statement Tuesday that the issue "affected each finalist equally" and "was promptly addressed." Voting times were not extended.
Bristol Palin's improbable run to the finals despite mediocre scores has been championed by some conservative bloggers running get-out-the-vote campaigns.
She comes into Tuesday's finale in third place. Jennifer Grey leads with a perfect score and Massey is in second place.

Nancy, on the Boston local news they said there was some sort of threat scare on DWTS (aimed at Bristol).
Apparently security is beefed way up for tonight and the FBI will be there too.
I feel bad for Bristol.

Well there are all sorts of nuts out there, including ones that would make fake threats to make "the other side" look bad.

I haven't kept up with all of the drama. It seems like there's too much from both sides.

I thought there were death threats aimed at both Bristol and Mark now? So someone from their camp made this up to make anti Bristol people look bad? I need to read some of this news I missed.

How can they possibly know it affected each contestant equally?

ITA Nancy!

However, the news reports all said (well, basically regurgitated the same story), that the substance was sent to the ABC Production offices. Now, whether or not it was specifically addressed to Bristol and/or Mark, it was never said that it was. But, the story did include the controversial vote where Brandy/Maks left and Bristol/Mark stayed.

So, result of the vote, definitely ... directed specifically to Bristol ... who knows?
