Republican Loses By 1 Vote Amid ‘Shady Counting’ Concerns

via KSLA News 12

A tight Louisiana election for Caddo Parish sheriff was decided by one vote, leading to a call for a recount.

However, the situation became more complex when two people were found to have voted twice in the election.

Despite the recount, one candidate is calling for a new election due to concerns about disenfranchisement. (Trending: SNL Legend Unleashes On Democrats)

“It’s a sad situation because it’s two people who didn’t understand what they were doing, said Caddo Parish Clerk of Court Mike Spence.

“This wasn’t malicious,” he added.

“No matter what happens in any court battle following Monday’s machine recount of more than 7,700 absentee ballots many voters in our community would feel deeply disenfranchised and will question the legitimacy of this election,” wrote Republican John Nickerson to his Democratic opponent Henry Whitehorn.

“Under these unique circumstances, any certification of the current result can not withstand judicial — or public — scrutiny,” he continued.

“For that reason, I invite you to join me in asking the district court to order a special second runoff election,” wrote Nickerson.

The recount will only focus on absentee ballots, as Louisiana uses paperless touchscreen voting machines without a paper trail.
