Parties Ready Armies of Recount Lawyers
New York Times ^ | October 22, 2010 | By MICHAEL D. SHEAR

Posted on 10/22/2010 5:29:47 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Democratic and Republican officials in Washington say they have elaborate plans in place involving training sessions for recount volunteers, Washington lawyers who specialize in recount efforts and detailed plans about how to mobilize legal and public relations resources if a recount is necessary.

Rob Jesmer, the executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, admitted, “there’s something else that keeps me up at night beyond tight poll numbers. Recounts.”

In the e-mail, Mr. Jesmer urges supporters to donate money so the party can be ready to field lawyers on Nov. 3 in places where recounts might be necessary.

“We cannot let the Democrats try to steal any of these seats,” Mr. Jesmer said. “With polls showing so many of these races tight, you know they’re going to try. That’s why we have lawyers ready to be dispatched at a moment’s notice on Election Day.”

Good to hear. I don't reckon we will know the final outcome for quite some time.

We can't ever again concede a single race until there is no doubt.

If they try anything, they deserve nationwide riots.

Oh, they’ll try. Recount and challenges - once all the vote fraud is done - IS the dim ground game.

I heard a pundit on the radio yesterday say that George W Bush was selected, not elected. They still haven't really conceded the election of 2000.

Re your tagline...LMAO!
This is an incentive to get out there in huge numbers and make the final tally a clear-cut,decisive one.I hope it goes smoothly,but i’m afraid there will be problems.

The stupid pubbies have had years to prepare for this and it looks like they wasted it, I really think they like being in the minority. P.S. I saw something yesterday about several thousand brand new dim mexican voters showing up in AZ. just in time to save raul grivaldas’ worthless ass.

And the report says that those voter registrations are 65% bogus. (not citizens, invalid address, no SSN and etc.)

They should have put Cris Cristie in charge of the anti-vote fraud task force. Nevada may be the prime case.

This will probably be the dems primary method to steal seats. They will cheat enough to force recounts.

This is a practice that needs to end. The mandatory recount of the recount that was recounted 3 times after the original count of votes has become the most effective means available for the likes of Franken-crats to introduce more fraud and phony ballots to the election process.

With all of the intelligence, innovation and technology available to Americans, we should have resolved the ballot count problem decades ago. But, the “politicians” like Franken and Obama, et al, LIKE the status quo . . . . . more opportunities for fraud!
