5th CD recount scheduled.

Rick Sincere tells me that it’s official: the 5th District recount will be held on Tuesday, December 16. The specific rules dictating how this recount will be conducted will be set by the circuit court on the morning of Friday the 12th.

As I’ve said, it’s just hugely unlikely that the results are going to change meaningfully, but with a race this close, it’s reasonable for Virgil Goode to request a recount. Presumably both Goode and Congressman-elect Perriello will need volunteers in every locality to serve as witnesses to the recount, but I’ve heard nothing about that yet.
