So you are punting my question to HuffPo, who you deride as a Liberal source, not to be trusted? And, according to HuffPo, it seems as if it was done as a courtesy to West, not because they were close enough in vote totals to trigger a recount. So these Democrats in the election office could have told West to fuck off, yet they didn't, wanting to make sure there were no doubts as to Murphy's victory. All you have done with this thread is to re-affirm Democrat's basic goodness and fairness while illuminating Republican's whiny immaturity. Not what you planned, eh wingnut?
