The coming Ohio recount
I think it would only be fair, and quite possible, for the two third-party presidential candidates applying for a statewide recount to somehow pay the state of Ohio the actual cost of the recount, rather than the paltry $10 per precinct maximum provided for by law. There's $1.5 million out there around the country, and the taxpayers shouldn't be made to suffer just because they caught our legislature with its pants down. I don't know what you do...just write a check to the treasury? Would that be tax-deductible?
