253. I think that's only true if you remove it from context
In the context of her statement, what numbers is she talking about?

Kathy didn't offer an explanation about why she didn't mention anything prior to Thursday afternoon's canvass completion, but showed us different tapes where numbers seemed to add up, though I have no idea where the numbers were coming from. I was not told of the magnitude of this error, just that she had made one. I was then instructed that I would not say anything at the press conference, and was actually surprised when I was asked questions by reporters.

The reason I offer this explanation is that, with the enormous amount of attention this has received over the weekend, many people are offering my statements at the press conference that the numbers "jibed" as validation they are correct and I can vouch for their accuracy....

I think the most natural reading of that -- especially given the rest of the statement -- is not that she is suddenly racked by doubt about what happened at the canvass, or that she never intended to vouch for the canvass, but that her statement that the numbers "jibed" wasn't intended to apply to the tapes Nickolaus showed her when explaining the discrepancy. The sentence you quoted is confusing in part because there is more than one set of numbers.
