We share this post if only prepare readers for augments with drunk uncles who imagine that they uncovered the "secret files" via Facebook.
Here's a glimpse at the election season festivities . . .
In Johnson County, election workers are currently sorting through 256,869 ballots that were cast during the primary election. The ballots will be divided by precincts. From there, bipartisan teams of two will work together to count the votes by hand.
The Kansas Secretary of State’s Office set a deadline requiring counties to complete the recount by 5 p.m., on Saturday, Aug. 20.
Meanwhile is Bizarro world . . .
Operation Rescue is already restarting their campaign with a basic misunderstanding of how single-issue voters can impact elections . . .
"Yet, 543,855 voters cast ballots against the amendment – more than the total number of eligible registered Democrats in the state. That meant a large number of voters who usually support pro-life candidates and initiatives inexplicably voted against the Value Them Both Amendment.
“The outcome of the Value Them Both vote just did not make any sense. The polling appeared to be off by a massive 20 percent. The results indicated a huge defection of traditionally pro-life Republican and Independent voters.

It was a puzzle until heard about what happened in Cherokee County,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
