7. Cite the case please. Tell me who got a 100% hand count in a Congressional election in NY.

It was NOT CD-1 in 2010, because in that race, the Dem wanted a full hand recount until he took the lead in that race when the absentee ballots were counted. After that, there was NO talk of a recount from the Dems and the Repubs seemed to give up.

Re Senate District 7 in Nassau, the highest court in the state denied a recount request. That was also in 2010 and the court said such a recount had never been done. Were they uninformed?

I will admit I forgot to mention something: Within NYC, there is a local regulation that requires a recount for close elections. It slipped my mind because I don't think it ever happened since we've gone to precinct-count scanners with millions of paper ballots. So this regulation still needs to be tested in that context.

So tell me, which NY Congressional race had a 100% hand count?
