7. I don't get it
forgive my ignorance but I don't understand why the "shit no" prompted you to unrec it?

regardless, here is what is going to happen... nothing. no one here in vermont realizes or understands the problem. we have a small group of people who "get it" and we are a thorn in the side of the SoS but the citizens of Vermont have no clue that the opscans have any potential problems at all. they have no idea what audits are or why we need them. and that goes for the candidates too. they are totally clueless. they think that by putting the ballots back into the machines, we are doing a valid recount. so there will be no lawyers, no fights for or against the recount.... nothing. in all likelihood the recount will have the same winner and people will complain that we had to spend the time and money on it at all. and if the Dem loses in the general election, they'll blame it on the recount and how it split the party apart. There ya go.

For the record, i am among those people you describe, who believe that opscans with audits are better than DREs. I don't have a vested interest, and I don't necessarily want the opscans to stay. I just would rather have audited opscans than DREs.
