Election Limbo Day 6: Smith Files for a recount

Apparently a big fuss at the Election Commission today resulted in a bunch of nothing new.  Smith ended up filing a court case, saying he wants a machine recount.  He also posted some statements from his attorney on his web site.  The common theme was still the drastically lower amount of total votes (and Smith votes) in the recount than in the original certified count.

Baker apparently asked Smith to concede, according to the Tulsa Worldwhile Smith called on Baker to stick with his earlier comments (made when Baker was behind) to make sure every vote was counted.
