County clerks prepare for Kentucky recanvass

By WBKO News Staff | Posted: Fri 7:05 AM, Nov 08, 2019

... Clark County Clerk Michelle Turner said the process could take as little as an hour ...

"There shouldn't be any discrepancy of 5000 in the votes," <Bourbon County Clerk Richard Still> Eads said. "Of course he may prove me wrong, but I don't see that, and I've been clerk for 25 years."

Warren County Clerk Lynette Yates also said she does not expect the recanvass to change the winner.

Clerks said they are not aware of any statewide irregularities in voting like the ones Bevin referenced at a Wednesday press conference.

Joe Sonka, Louisville Courier Journal
Published 3:11 p.m. ET Nov. 7, 2019 | Updated 9:19 a.m. ET Nov. 8, 2019

... "If there is evidence of fraud or illegalities, as was alluded to last night, Governor Bevin should state his claim immediately and let the evidence be reviewed," Rep. Jason Nemes, R-Louisville, wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday. "But this is not an opportunity for a fishing expedition or a chance to overturn the election result."

"For all the Republicans who scream and yell that we shouldn't overturn an election with impeachment and removal of the president, they should feel exactly the same way about overturning an election for the governor's race," <Rep. Adam Koenig of Erlanger> said ...

Sen. Chris McDaniel, R-Taylor Mill, told The Courier Journal ... there was no chance of Bevin picking up anywhere near the 5,190 votes he would need to defeat Beshear ...

"It appears to me that Andy Beshear was the democratically elected governor of the commonwealth, and we get our marching orders from the voters," McDaniel said. "We've been told to find a way to run Kentucky with him at the head and Republicans in the House in the Senate, and we'll do it ...

4. "the process could take as little as an hour ..."

So sit down, and shut up, Bevin. I will say, I am quite surprised rethuglicans are being so magnanimous here.
