So the Democrats want Washington State Republican Dino Rossi to concede the gubernatorial election that was stolen from him in a third statewide count, featuring outright fraud by their partisan cronies, but think they have grounds for contesting Ohio? How could the Kerry campaign sign onto this pointless effort? The Ohio recount only gave Kerry a few hundred extra votes:
(AP) The recount shows Bush winning Ohio by 118,457 votes over John Kerry, according to unofficial results provided to The Associated Press by the 88 counties. Lucas County, where Toledo is located, was the last to report its results Tuesday.
The state had earlier declared Bush the winner by 118,775 votes and planned to adjust its totals to reflect the recount later this week.
The Kerry campaign supported the recount, but said it did not expect the tally to change the election winner. Supporters of the recount, requested by two minor party candidates, said they wanted to make sure that every valid vote was counted.
