MtPleasantPatch: Republican Legislature leadership on Wednesday requested the Government Accountability Board examine and resolve alleged irregularities at the polls that came to light in the District 21 recall race.

What about the law on the books requiring states to set up health insurance exchanges? Oh, I forgot, that’s a law they don’t like.

"It's an utter mockery of our system and clerks are simply not complying with the law." To make things worse, the recount prevented the city from making the deadline for sending out same-day voter registration postcards.
Having created the above problem due to an unnecessary recount:
Wanggaard said those cards need to be mailed within 10 days and even read the statute to prove his point.
