33. i disagree with you and agree with the brennan report
it's not so much a question of moving the date of the recount request deadline

according to my read of the brennan recommendations which are my guide, the posting of any official results has to be contingent on the audit being completed and the discrepancies being within the acceptable range. if not in the range, a pre-determined protocol is followed, for example counting a larger sample.

so the candidate requesting a recount is unrelated. we are trying to create a system that will catch fraud or errors, and not put it in the hands of a candidate to decide what to do.
