  1. WTF?

    As I recall she was trounced. Is there any way, statistically, that a recount in six close precincts could overturn the overall result?

    The people of Ada County are so indebted to you, Sharon.

    She is such an embarrassment and a sore loser. I doubt there were 1,300 mistakes in the ballots which was the difference in her latest election failure. Learn to accept defeat Sharon.

  3. Not sure that gamble paid off. She now owes $600 for the recount. I wonder why she asked and how she decided on 6 precincts.

  4. Go figure! Recount tally exactly the same as original count…..minus $600.
