Judge OKs Full Ohio Recount

A federal judge ruled today that the recount will go forward in ALL Ohio counties.
Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb today expressed his satisfaction with a ruling by a federal judge taking jurisdiction over a
Delaware County, Ohio lawsuit and denying the county's attempt to stop the recount of presidential ballots in that county.

"We are very pleased that the judge recognized our right to a recount and that the recount will go forward in each and every county in Ohio," said Cobb.

The judge also provisionally granted the motion by the Kerry-Edwards campaign to intervene in the lawsuit in defense of the position of Cobb and Libertarian Michael Badnarik.

Although the judge did not agree with Cobb that the recount should proceed on an expedited basis, the Cobb campaign is confident that a full and complete recount will take place.

Re: Judge OKs Full Ohio Recount

My instincts tell me that the Republicans stole the election.....again. Ohio was at the center of the theft. Exit polls conducted by multiple parties with multiple agendas all showed Kerry the victor. The Nickelodean Kids Poll which, up until 2004, had been 100% accurate in predicting the ultimate winner in the presidential contest, also picked Kerry as the winner with 59% of the vote.

The third factoid to consider is this. The counties in which the voting results widely differed from the exit polls were not the Red counties or the Blue counties, or Bible-Belt counties, or the poor counties. No. The precincts which used Diebold voting machines were the common factor in the wild results.

I'm glad the Greens (I am one of them) are doing the recount. Once again, I have to ask, where are the Democrats?
