Nevada's DRE's Creates Obstacles to Recount

For immediate release:

Cobb Campaign Decides Not to Pursue Nevada Recount Recounts go forward in Ohio and New Mexico

Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb announced today that he would not pursue a recount in Nevada.

Cobb and Libertarian Michael Badnarik had made the initial recount request on Monday.

"The Nevada Secretary of State's office presented us with hefty bill and a ridiculous list of tasks to be completed in an unreasonably short period of time," said Blair Bobier, Media Director for the Cobb-LaMarche campaign.

"We were asked to pay $349,000 but were not provided a detailed breakdown of the actual costs and we do not have confidence that our money will be spent wisely. Apparently, using privately owned Sequoia voting machines creates a situation where the Secretary of State needs to bring in outside technicians at great expense in order to recount the ballots of Nevada voters. This creates an unacceptable obstacle for ensuring the integrity of Nevada's elections," added Bobier.

"At this point, we would rather focus our efforts on recounts in Ohio and New Mexico," said Cobb campaign manager Lynne Serpe

The Ohio recount will be the subject of a hearing on Friday in Federal District Court in Columbus, Ohio. Cobb, Badnarik and their attorneys filed counterclaims against Republican Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, alleging that Blackwell is stalling the recount effort there.
