40. mmmmm
The Chautauqua results shouldn't have been certified -- so should they have rerun the election in that precinct? What's your remedy?

What reasoning supported the conclusion that Bowen's regs would lead to a full recount in CA-4? What does that have to do with anything anyway? You seem to be making a kster argument here.

What case law are you referring to? Are you suggesting that it's impossible for a court to find that the ballots have been preserved inviolate? I assume that if Novick could support that point, she would. So, I'm relying heavily on her reading of the law when I express skepticism about her conclusions.

What on earth do exit polls have to do with this? Yes, I raise an eyebrow that Novick has gone from embracing the exit poll results to repudiating them -- and that she has gone from saying that she doesn't support levers to her present vocal advocacy. But ultimately the courts won't rule on her internal consistency, and I have no way of knowing whether her position remains tactical or whether she has convinced herself. The question is whether she can win the argument. I am not holding my breath. At any rate, it will not depend on me.

You don't like it when the EPTBs tell you that you don't know how to read polls, do you? So try not to suggest that Novick doesn't know how to read law. That's all I'm saying.

Well, it obviously isn't all you're saying, it doesn't have much to do with what I'm saying, and it's fundamentally misdirected. Otherwise, great point, right up there with the stuff about "blind faith."
