Breaking news: Ohio recount certain

From a Green Party press release:

"Green Party Campaign Raises $150,000 in 4 days,
Shifts Gears to Phase II

There will be a recount of the presidential vote in Ohio.
On Thursday, David Cobb, the Green Party's 2004 presidential
candidate, announced his intention to seek a recount of the vote in Ohio.
Since the required fee for a statewide recount is $113,600, the only

"Thanks to the thousands of people who have contributed to this

MSNBC columnist David Shuster has backed up the story:
"This afternoon, I spoke with Blair Bobier, the attorney/spokesman for David Cobb, the Green Party's 2004 candidate for President. Bobier confirms that the press release floating on the net is legitimate. The Green Party is combining forces with the Libertarian Party to seek a statewide election recount in Ohio..."
