Primary Re-count Begins In New Hampshire

From a suspicious Associated Press:

Primary re-count begins

January 16, 2008

CONCORD, N.H.—Teams of counters have started re-counting the Democratic ballots cast in last week’s New Hampshire presidential primary.

They are looking first at ballots from Manchester.

Secretary of State William Gardner says his office has received $27,000 from Ohio Democrat Dennis Kucinich to pay for the start of the re-count. Gardner said observers from campaigns and fair elections groups have the right to see and approve every ballot.

Kucinich received less than 2 percent of the vote. He said he is suspicious of the results, although he doesn’t expect a re-count to change his vote count much.

Kucinich can stop the re-count at any time and get a refund for the balance of the costs. To re-count the entire state would cost him about $70,000…

Once again, reason takes a holiday.

And we have Al Gore to thank for it all.
