Cobb Campaign Welcomes Kerry Intervention on Recount

Today, attorneys representing the Kerry-Edwards campaign filed papers in Delaware County, Ohio to intervene in legal proceedings in defense of Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb, Libertarian Michael Badnarik and their legal counsel, the National Voting Rights Institute, who are seeking a recount of all votes cast for president in the Ohio 2004 general election.

On November 23, at the request of the Delaware County Board of Elections, a Delaware County judge issued a temporary restraining order against Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb, Libertarian Michael Badnarik and the National Voting Rights Institute, seeking to prevent them from initiating a recount of the presidential vote in that county.

The judge issued the order without first consulting the candidates or their attorneys.

"The Cobb-LaMarche Green Party presidential campaign has been leading the effort to seek a recount of the presidential vote in Ohio. We are seeking a recount to protect the integrity of the voting process, to protect the right to vote and to ensure that all votes are counted fairly and accurately. The Cobb-LaMarche campaign has been joined in this effort by the Libertarian presidential campaign.

We believe that all presidential candidates should support the recount in Ohio to remove any cloud of suspicion cast on the election results. We welcome the support of the Kerry-Edwards campaign for the recount and we call upon the Bush-Cheney ticket to offer their support for this multi-partisan effort as well," said Blair Bobier, Media Director for the Cobb-LaMarche Green Party presidential campaign.

The Cobb-LaMarche campaign is currently seeking recounts of the presidential vote in New Mexico and Nevada, in addition to Ohio. For more information, see the campaign website, http://www.votecobb.org. Information about the Green Party can be found at http://www.gp.org.
