Recount in Ohio

Reportedly, Green candidate David Cobb announced yesterday that he and Michael Badnarik, the Libertarian candidate, are requesting a recount of the presidential vote in Ohio.

This is going to cost them approximately $110,000.

If anyone is inclined to help them out, here's where to do so.

I have no realistic expectation of any results from this, other than possibly clarifying what shenanigans occurred, but that is a worthy goal in itself in my humble opinion. I have, to put my few bucks where my mouth is, made a small contribution to the Green Party's recount fund on this link myself. If all it does is help people to realize how important to the election process are accountability and transparency, it will have been worthwhile (and worth the cost).
