DURST: The Florida ReCount Edition

"What I don't get is why the vote counting deadlines always have to happen at five pm? Isn't there anybody in the state able to authorize overtime?"
* Now it's assumed that some people punched out more than one holes because they were confused and thought they were playing Bingo.
