Ohio Recount is On

You know what this means. Republican thugs from across the country will be flying into the Buckeye State and doing everything in their power to stop this, just as they did in Florida in 2000. If we allow this to happen again, we deserve whatever we get as a result.

Finally. We have something to thank the Green Party for, since too many of our fellow Dems decided to roll over and take the path of least resistance. Thank you, Greens. Thank you.
Recount in Ohio a Sure Thing
Green Party Campaign Raises $150,000 in 4 Days, Shifts Gears to Phase II

There will be a recount of the presidential vote in Ohio.

On Thursday, David Cobb, the Green Party's 2004 presidential candidate, announced his intention to seek a recount of the vote in Ohio. Since the required fee for a statewide recount is $113,600, the only question was whether that money could be raised in time to meet the filing deadline. That question has been answered.

The Ohio presidential election was marred by numerous press and independent reports of mis-marked and discarded ballots, problems with electronic voting machines and the targeted disenfranchisement of African American voters. A number of citizens' groups and voting rights organizations are holding the second of two hearings today in Columbus, Ohio, to take testimony from voters, poll watchers and election experts about problems with the Ohio vote.
