Election Results Stay Same After Second Look

A second look at two tight legislative races has netted the same results - victory for the incumbents.

In a northern Kentucky Senate race, Republican Sen. Jack Westwood finished with 21,057 votes to Democrat Kathy Groob's 20,250 votes. Meanwhile a central Kentucky House race finished with Republican state Rep. Tim Moore of Elizabethtown defeating Democrat Mike Weaver.

Local county election officials conducted a recanvassing of the races on Thursday. Secretary of State spokesman Les Fugate says candidates have until Friday to petition for a recount.

The General Assembly's balance of power won't change following the election.

Heading in, the GOP controlled the Senate 22-14-1, while Democrats led the House 62-35. If the results hold, the Senate numbers would stay the same, while the Democrats would lead 65-35 in the House.

    See? Not everything is a conspiracy to install Republicans in office. Sometimes the people actually do vote in Republicans.

    Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution reads: "No Person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States." There are numerous questions as to Obama's citizen status raising suspicion and doubt about Obama constitutional qualification to be president. To settle these questions Mr. Obama must produce proof of citizenship!
