LOUISVILLE, Ky. —

Republican Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin's campaign requested a recanvass of vote totals that show him losing his reelection bid.

His campaign sent a statement Wednesday afternoon saying it is doing so due to the close nature of the gubernatorial race and multiple reports of voting irregularities. “The people of Kentucky deserve a fair and honest election. With reports of irregularities, we are exercising the right to ensure that every lawful vote was counted," Bevin said in a news release.

In a 5 p.m. news conference on Wednesday, Bevin expanded on the irregularities.

When I was a kid in Chicago in the 60’s everybody knew the dead voted!!

Live now in People’s Republic of Maryland. I’ve been asking at Republican meetings about what are we doing to protect the vote from fraud. I get deer in the headlight stares. Lordy.

Very likely that enough felon votes, maybe from just confusion, may have made the difference.

Hope he is sent enough legal help from the Party to do a good job of checking the recanvas!

I am familiar with Maryland. Right now the governor is a Republican (sort of), but the Dems own the state house and he’ll almost certainly be replaced by a wild eyed Dem.

Maryland is a lost cause in my humble opinion.

Who, Larry 'Pooh Bear' Hogan? I was born, raised, and lived 30 years of my life in Maryland. My mother and sister still live in the family home my parents built when I was born, so I know Maryland politics pretty damn good. Hogan does just enough - barely - to keep the (R) by his name. He's otherwise a capitulating RINO who is in favor of the Paris Climate Treaty, banned fracking in the state, signed off on more gun control legislation (like the state needed any more), endorses the DACA program and pulled MD National Guard troops from the border to protest Trump's immigration policies, is pro-abortion, pro-LGTBQ rights, and endorses same-sex marriage. On other issues he's just barely right of center, enough that he's considered the lesser of two evils by conservatives and a tolerable mixed bag by liberals. He makes Mitt Romney look like Ronald Reagan. The only thing that he can hang his political hat on is that he's a fiscal conservative and endorses lower taxes. Otherwise, he's just another career political hack pandering to special interests and the I-95/Beltway clique.

Maryland's been a lost cause for a good thirty years.

This commie Kentucky governor candidate said that the voters spoke loud and clear. Really? With only 4,000 votes separating out of a million and a half? If he officially wins he better not push a hard left agenda. Kentucky at least has a chance. Here in Mexifornia the Repugnicans sometimes don’t even run a candidate. Lame.

One way to eliminate the fraudulent component, and get a lot closer to the legitimate result would be to shave 33 percent off the democrat total.

Even if there is provable vote fraud, we need a GOP with a spine to insist on prosecuting it and not accept the result of a compromised election. Even if Bevin wants this, it won’t go anywhere without a supportive GOP, and therefore I’m not very hopeful.

He cites “irregularities” without citing a specific example.

He reminds me of a democrat...and sore loser.

I’ll say it again, it is astronomically unlikely to see so many razor thin election results like this. An we see far too many for it to be a reality. Statistically, this is impossible. It’s like flipping a coin 25 times and coming up with heads 25 times.

Impossible without fraudulent engineering, that is.

One of the WORST election practices going is to have voting precincts report their results in real time, publicly, as these counts come available. That only lets the losing side know how many ‘votes’ they need to just squeak ahead. All official counts should be reported either simultaneously, or sent to a secure custodian who releases the results of the entire race all at once. That is the ONLY way to squash the temptation to fraud.

You are so right.

Been active in Maryland politics for almost 30 years and it has a been a lost cause since I got here.

Worked with Michael Steele when he became chair of the Prince George’s County Republican Party Central Committee. Loved him back then. He changed big time.

Later dealed with the Governor of Maryland, Ehrilch. What a jaw dropping idiot.

Hogan’s no different. He’s a Rat who got labeled different.

A state-wide recount where the loser eventually won happened not too long ago in Minnesota. That was when Al Franken eventually discovered enough ballots to overturn the initial results showing that he lost.

I’m not sure if this can be repeated this time.

Particulars in the article:
“He said thousands of absentee ballots were wrongly counted, people were turned away from polling sites and ballots were placed into boxes instead of ballot machines in Jefferson County. “

then there’s the tweet that somebody ‘shredded’ rep ballots? wonder when trash pickup day is?
