We can agree to disagree, but I think the law is on my side here. Our duty is very simple, and it’s a duty… We have no authority to request an audit, to delay or block certification, to review inaccuracies that happened at the local level. Those results have been certified. Our duty is to look at those certified results, look at the math, and then certify. The statute couldn’t be more clear.
