Tina Peters Recount Goes Just Like You Thought it Would

Former Republican Secretary of State candidate Tina Peters found out the results of her $250,000 recount attempt today. Peters needed about 89,000 votes to change in order for her to be declared the GOP nominee for Secretary of State instead of Pam Anderson.

She gained a total of 13 votes instead. But so did Anderson, so the margin doesn’t change.

    Where they go one, they go all. Like lemmings over the cliff.

    That would be $19,692 per vote.

    The Corrupt Little Engine That Couldn't.

    But don't fret, tinap; Lindell will take care of all your sleep needs while you're sitting in jail.

    Far too many republicans aka fascists believe the lies being spewed by the likes of Tina Peters, trump and a whole host of others.

    Thankfully we have responsible and reasonable people in our statewide elected offices that believe in the rule of law and in the election procedures, so the impact of these carnival barkers to damage will be minimal.

    That can't be said for states like FL, AZ, OH, WI and many others where these fascist kooks have far too much power in their respective state's election process.

    I surely hope that people vote in record numbers in every election cycle and that they for the Democratic candidate for each and every elected office or else we're fucked.

    I would like to understand how/why the numbers changed.
    I know 13 votes are minuscule, but why?

      It’s usually something like a bubble being filled in lightly that didn’t get counted the first time.

      Colorado Sun story is here

      Peters picked up 13 more votes through the recount, but so did Anderson. Mike O’Donnell, a third candidate running in the GOP primary, picked up 11 more votes.

      During the recount process, Elbert County Clerk and Recorder Dallas Schroeder, a Republican, notified state elections officials that his office had found 37 unopened ballots in a bin that was being prepared for storage after the primary. The ballots were returned before the June 28 primary, so state elections officials ordered them processed…..

      The Colorado County Clerks Association earlier on Thursday said Peters had gained just four votes from the recount and that Anderson had gained seven votes. That tally did not appear to factor in the unopened ballots in Elbert County.

      “The recount she asked for showed she lost, just as our post-election audits already held in every county and certified by volunteer citizen canvass boards found,” Matt Crane, who leads the association representing local election leaders, said in a written statement.
