Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb will address
recount volunteers, the public and protesters who will gather outside the
Ohio Statehouse in Columbus, on Monday, December 13, the day that
presidential electors meet in all state capitals to cast their votes. Cobb
will make his address at approximately12:15 p.m. on the High Street sidewalk
adjacent to the Capitol grounds.
The Cobb campaign is demanding recounts of the presidential vote
in Ohio and New Mexico. Several Ohio counties are expected to begin the
recount on Monday; others will begin on different days throughout the week.
New Mexico election officials are meeting on Monday to consider Cobb's
recount demand in that state.
"It is absolutely outrageous and irresponsible for the Ohio
and New Mexico presidential electors to cast their votes when the outcome of
recounts are still unknown. Just as in Florida in 2000, we have to question
the integrity of our voting system and those partisan officials who are in
charge of it. With allegations of voter intimidation and suppression
looming, an impending Congressional investigation and the recounts just
beginning, the presidential electors will cast their votes under a cloud of
suspicion," said Cobb.
