Dump the Funk crew wants a recount

This afternoon, the group pushing the recall of oversized novelty Mayor Mark Funkhouser will ask the city clerk to recount the more than 21,000 signatures -- and after an exhausted sigh, she'll probably agree --  and then they'll pray that 129 more valid signatures. 

Spokesman Harris Wilder says:

"The City Clerk and her office have been wonderful throughout this recall campaign and we appreciate their hard work. Today we are asking both for a recount and for written guidance as to how such a recount will be conducted. In the initial count, the 'regular folks' were short by 129 signatures, out of over 21,000 submitted. Obviously, this situation calls for a careful recount of all of the Petition signatures. We are confident that after a fair and accurate recount, we will have the necessary signatures to recall this Mayor."

5,000 invalid signatures? That's a lot of I.P. Freelys and Craven Morecocks.
