Kerry's attorneys now have 30 questions about Ohio
The "better late than never" award apparently goes to the Kerry campaign. Apparently its lawyers have finally shaken off their post-Nov. 2 stun and, according to the PD, are now sniffing around the plethora of voting issues in Ohio:
Lawyers with John Kerry's presidential campaign are gathering information from Ohio election boards about uncounted ballots and other unresolved issues from last week's election. Attorneys say they are not trying to challenge the election but are only carrying out Kerry's promise to make sure that all the votes in Ohio are counted. They describe this effort, which began this week, as a "fact-finding mission." [. . . ]
The Kerry campaign has compiled a list of more than 30 questions for local election officials, asking about the number of absentee and provisional ballots, any reports of equipment malfunctions on election night, and any ballots that still listed third-party challenger Ralph Nader as a candidate.
