BREAKING NEWS: Kerry-Edwards campaign lawyers join Greens and Libs in trying to overturn Delaware County judge's ruling

A few conservative sites we've seen have claimed that what they have seen as a shrinking interest/involvement by the Kerry Edwards campaign in recount activities indicates that the Ohio recount and questions about irregularities are a dead issue.

That's a very nice thought.

But I wonder, then, what to make of this. Where after attorneys for Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb asked a federal court judge to turn over a Delaware County judge's restraining order preventing a recount in Delaware County, Attorneys representing the Kerry-Edwards campaign filed papers in Delaware County to intervene, adding their voice to defend Cobb and Michael Badnarik's efforts at a recount.

The issue here being, should a state election for Presidential electors be under federal jursidiction? Mongo say yes yes.

Regardless, I can't imagine the Kerry-Edwards lawyers would be joinng in and filing papers in Delaware County today if they had decided that it wasn't a worthwhile issue to get a recount in all the counties. So much for the Kerry-Edwards are running away from the recount theory.
