Kucinich Asks for New Hampshire Recount in the Interest of Election Integrity

Thank you Dennis Kucinich!

I was hoping Dennis would step forward on the Democratic side pushing for a NH recount, he has. Kucinich has sent a letter to the New Hampshire Secretary of State asking for a recount of New Hampshire’s primary election.

From Ron Paul War Room/BUSINESS WIRE:

. . .I am not making this request in the expectation that a recount will significantly affect the number of votes that were cast on my behalf, Kucinich stressed in a letter to Secretary of State William M. Gardner. But, Serious and credible reports, allegations, and rumors have surfaced in the past few days. It is imperative that these questions be addressed in the interest of public confidence in the integrity of the election process and the election machinery not just in New Hampshire, but in every other state that conducts a primary election.

He added, Ever since the 2000 election and even before the American people have been losing faith in the belief that their votes were actually counted. This recount isn’t about who won 39% of 36% or even 1%. Its about establishing whether 100% of the voters had 100% of their votes counted exactly the way they cast them.

. . .New Hampshire is in the unique position to address and, if so determined, rectify these issues before they escalate into a massive, nationwide suspicion of the process by which Americans elect their President. Based on the controversies surrounding the Presidential elections in 2004 and 2000, New Hampshire is in a prime position to investigate possible irregularities and to issue findings for the benefit of the entire nation, Kucinich wrote in his letter.

Without an official recount, the voters of New Hampshire and the rest of the nation will never know whether there are flaws in our electoral system that need to be identified and addressed at this relatively early point in the Presidential nominating process, said Kucinich, who is campaigning in Michigan this week in advance of next Tuesdays Presidential primary in that state.

There is a problem with a recount, as Bev Harris of Blackboxvoting.com warned:

“A candidate asking for a recount may well be a tool used to ‘prove’ everything was okay and then that candidate will be further discredited,” reports Harris.

“We need citizen control and oversight. This is not going to come from the recount. If the election was rigged…don’t you think the riggers would have a backup Plan B for a rigged recount, knowing how easy it is to get a recount in NH?,” she concludes.

Here’s a good post on the European Tribune that shows how vote counts for Clinton/Obama exchanged in New Hampshire.
