Ohio, Fairfield County, suspends recount
At 4 pm today, after failing to get a match of hand counted ballots with punch card tabulator (ESS), two hand counts and two times through machine, after stating they were awaiting a call back from that company to have a new machine delivered, less than 30 seconds later convened a board meeting, voted to suspend recount, to await a new machine from ESS, and recount will be re-done Saturday, same exact precincts, the building is now closed, you are to exit the facility. BOE blaming issues on "machine failure" in order to avoid the now required entire county hand count. Precints were not random, they were selected by BOE, one from the Dem and one from the Repup.
This after their call to SOS Kathy Blackwell.
Greens will be going for a TRO. They are fully aware of entire circumstances of this report.
BOE's trying to get around mandotory handcounts of entire counties by calling it machine failure rather than follow clear statute. This will be breaking I am sure before long.
First hand witness to events above....myself
