Unofficial Recount Results Show Bennett The Winner
Unofficial results of the recount of the Terre Haute mayor's race confirms that Republican Duke Bennett defeated Mayor Kevin Burke by 108 votes, one more than the original vote tally showed. Unable to win cleanly, Burke is resorting to every under-handed play in the book to win the race. His recount attorneys want to throw out all the votes in 4 precincts, which would erase most of Bennett's winning margin, while they want to count the precinct results with the most voting discrepancies because Burke carried that precinct. Isn't it funny how much hell Democrats have raised over Indiana's Voter ID law, but they are willing to disenfranchise hundreds of voters who validly cast their ballots because it might tip the balance in favor of their candidate?
