Anyone examining the bizarre and tedious process of recounting a district election may be wondering, since these things are so much fun, why don't we do more of them? The answer, as revealed late Friday by the Department of Elections, is that they're not cheap.
In order to get the ball rolling in a recount of the District 7 contest in which Norman Yee eked out a 132-vote win over F.X. Crowley, it's going to require a check for a shade over $10,000 (and $200 more if a manual recount is desired). And, as is so often the case, this payment earns one the right to start making more and bigger payments.
