As of Tuesday afternoon, Shelly Simonds was still dithering about whether to call for a second recount which I previously pointed out she is not entitled to. Meanwhile calls continue to grow to abandon her Quixotic attempt to prolong this matter.
Meanwhile in the 94th District, the last minute hysterics of the plaintiffs in the 94th District appealing Judge Ellis’s opinion from Friday denying a special election to prevent Republican Bob Thomas from being sworn in tomorrow appear to have failed. There apparently will be no last minute reprieve from the 4th Circuit and both David Yancey and Bob Thomas
will be sworn in on Wednesday, January 10, 2018.
