It's because they lie. All the time:
"Sean, this recount is an expensive proposition."
No, Norm, you lying scumbag, it's not a "recount." The recount is over, and you lost. What you're babbling about is the lawsuit you've launched to dispute the results of the recount. Christ, even Fox News understands that.
What a twatwaffle.
THEY LIE. ALL THE TIME.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, on the other hand, said he doesn't expect an election certificate to be issued until the litigation is over.
"The only people who have pronounced the Minnesota Senate race over are Washington Democrats, and the candidate who is the current custodian of the most votes," McConnell said in a written statement released Tuesday. "The people of Minnesota certainly don't believe this is over."
Yes, Mitch, they do. Fuck off.
OH, CHRIST, it never ends.
