Did T-Mobile Outage Hurt Joe Mallahan?

Here's one Mallahan promotional tool that never loses service.
Some thought it was just a bad omen. But TechFlash's John Cook says that maybe, just maybe, T-Mobile's massive election-day outage was enough to swing the mayoral race in Mike McGinn's favor.

Here's the gist of Cook's admittedly "far-fetched" theory: Most Seattle voters had probably already mailed in their ballots by the time T-Mobile's service went screwy around 2:30 PM. But it's a close race. So if enough people got pissed and took that anger out on the cell phone giant's former VP of Fun 'n' Stuff, maybe it'd be enough to determine the election.

Mayhaps Cook is correct. In the meantime, he and TechFlash are also trying to figure out if the rash of slipped chains that beguiled Schwinn riders yesterday did anything to diminish McGinn's mayoral hopes. Stay tuned.
