Kerry's team weighs in on Ohio recount

Apparently, John Kerry's presidential campaign isn't dead yet. Yesterday his team asked an Ohio judge to allow it to join a legal fight over whether election officials in one Ohio county may sit out the state's impending recount.

A recount had been requested—and paid for—by Green Party candidate David Cobb and Libertarian candidate Michael Badnarik, but last week Ohio's Delaware County received a temporary restraining order blocking a recount, on the grounds that a second count "would be a poor use of county resources."

In response, Kerry lawyer Dan Hoffheimer said, "If there's going to be a recount in Ohio, we don't want it to exclude Delaware County or any other county that might decide to follow Delaware County's lead. It should be a full, fair, and accurate recount."
