Cleveland.com: NewsFlash - Enough money raised for a statewide recount

Cleveland.com: NewsFlash - Enough money raised for a statewide recount: "The recount would be conducted after the election results are certified in early December.

Libertarian Michael Badnarik and the Green Party's David Cobb said on Monday they raised more than $150,000 in four days, mostly in small contributions.

Ohio law requires payment of $10 per precinct for a recount, or $113,600 statewide.

Badnarik and Cobb said they aren't trying to overturn President Bush's 136,000-vote victory in Ohio, but just want to ensure that all votes were counted properly in the face of concerns about Election Day irregularities.

'Our bottom line is to stand up for the integrity of the voting process because the voting process is the heart of the democratic process,' said Blair Bobier, spokesman for Cobb.

Bobier said it will be worth the price to ensure the final outcome can be trusted."
