Aurora Austriaco Claimed Victory?

File this under:  super weird news.

I suppose in today's vernacular, the thing to say would be #FakeNews, right?

Over on AnybodyButAurora.com, a story from a news outlet called the Manilla Mail is shown that contains just flat out wrong information.  What information?  Well...it talks about how Aurora Austriaco WON the vote for State Representative.  Oh really?  She got trounced.

From the story:
Aurora Abella Austriaco, a Filipino American, made history in here by becoming the first Asian American to be elected to the state legislature. 
What made her success even sweeter is that this 43-year-old lawyer unseated an incumbent Republican state representative who served the district for eight terms by winning 59% of the votes cast. She was earlier wrongly reported as having lost the election. 
In her 17 years as a real estate litigation attorney and as a certified mediator, Austriaco has devoted herself to serving the children, elderly, women and minority population of the state.
Nope.  Not even close to the truth.  Don't take our word here at the Truth Team for it.  Just...Look at what some of the responses had to say:
