Nude Erections

Hey There!

One-third of precincts in Wayne County could be disqualified from an unprecedented statewide recount of presidential election results because of problems with ballots.

Michigan’s largest county voted overwhelmingly for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but officials couldn’t reconcile vote totals for 610 of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late last month.

Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.

According to state law, precincts whose poll books don’t match with ballots can’t be recounted. If that happens, original election results stand.

“It’s not good,” conceded Daniel Baxter, elections director for the city of Detroit.

He blamed the discrepancies on the city’s decade-old voting machines, saying 87 optical scanners broke on Election Day. Many jammed when voters fed ballots into scanners, which can result in erroneous vote counts if ballots are inserted multiple times. Poll workers are supposed to adjust counters to reflect a single vote but in many cases failed to do so, causing the discrepancies, Baxter said.

Even so, Baxter said it’s unlikely all 392 of the city’s precincts with mismatched numbers will be disqualified from a recount. The city is in contact with elections officials at the state of Michigan and Baxter predicted the numbers will match when the ballot boxes are re-opened for the recount, which starts Tuesday in Wayne County at Cobo Center.

“It’s a challenge, but we’re confident the ballots will match,” Baxter said. “I don’t think it’s going to be 100 percent, but it never is with a recount.” Dan in Ohio

County reports obtained by The Detroit News, though, indicate canvassers were provided no explanation for why the numbers didn’t add up in those precincts. They certified the results of the election anyway...... Etc., Etc., Etc. You get the idea. Go to the link to read it all if you wish.


And - A related story about stopping the Michigan recount

[...] Jill Stein, of course, does not expect to change the results of the election. She launched her laughable recount effort in a vainglorious attempt to raise money. As Conservative Review’s Rob Eno explained: “Stein did this to increase her donor file. Many politicians ‘buy’ their donor files from their campaigns. It is a valuable source of income for the candidate. In a report on Ben Carson’s donor list an expert told NBC News that each email address of an active donor is worth $5-$6 on the open rental market over a three year period. Stein is looking to cash in.”

Should Lisa Lyons’ bill pass in Michigan, it would be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2016, forcing Jill Stein to pay for her own demands. It would justifiably save the state’s taxpayers millions, and stick it to the Green Party con artist.
ASIDE: Sorry this is so late. Ron sent it yesterday, but I am in the throes of the worst wintertime cold that even my wife tole me that any other man would be crying in delirium for his mommy to make him some creamed peas on toast.  Don't be concerned, I am a survivor.  Thank you.

PS.  It would not surprise if recounts in Nevada and Colorado would give Trump those states as well.
