Virginia AG Race Heads to Recount

Let's get prepaed now for the Dems to steal another election (ala Washington State last year). With the election certified yesterday, Virginia AG race looks like this

Precincts Reporting: 2426 of 2426 (100.00%)
Registered Voters: 4,449,025
Total Voting: 1,942,653
Voter Turnout: 43.66 %
Candidates Party Vote Totals Percentage
R F McDonnell Republican 970,635 49.96%
R C Deeds Democratic 970,225 49.94%
Write Ins 1,793 0.09%


McDonnell’s lead on election day was 2,023 votes. now, I understand about absentee ballots, but they shoudl normally swing Republican, particularly in light of the military population in Virginia.

The Washington Post reports that the recount will occur on December 20, 2005 and that the State of Virginia will have to pay for it.

The Virginian-Post reports that "The recount is expected to last until mid- to late-December. The three-judge panel will set up one or more recount teams to supervise the recounts in each locality. Each team will have electoral board members, election officers and observers representing the two parties."

I am just leery of this process whenever we are involved in recounts we tend to get things stolen from us. If the Dems had their way, we'd still be recounting Florida '00.
