It’s a pay for play game at this point. If you really believe the exit polls were right and the votes were wrong, now you can help pay $150,000 for a recount in Ohio.
Washington, DC, Nov. 11 (UPI) — Strange bedfellows and former presidential rivals from the Green and Libertarian parties joined Thursday to demand a recount of presidential ballots in Ohio.
“Due to widespread reports of irregularities in the Ohio voting process, we are compelled to demand a recount of the Ohio presidential vote,” Green Party candidate David Cobb and Libertarian candidate Michael Bednarik said in a joint statement.
” … We must protect the rights of the people of Ohio, as well as all Americans, and stand up for the right to vote and the right for people’s votes to be counted,” they said. “The integrity of the democratic process is at stake.”No shit they’re demanding a recount – it’s free publicity and they know those “rumors on the Internets” people are going going to foot the bill for them.
Interestingly, in Ohio, Cobb received just 24 votes statewide out of over 5.5 million votes cast.
