It appears there are allegations that Ron Paul had votes stolen. By the way, Ron Paul Recount: Count My Vote

Gardner is preparing an estimate of the recount's cost.

Under state law, if a candidate who asks for a recount finished more than 3 percentage points behind the winner, the candidate must pay the cost of a recount. The cost is refunded if the recount finds that the requester won or finished within 1 percentage point of the winner.

Kucinich sent a letter to Gardner Thursday asking for the recount, citing "serious and credible reports, allegations and rumors" about the integrity of the primary results.

In other words, Kucinich will have to pay for the Democratic recount no matter what, even if irregularities are uncovered.

The Republican Recount is being called by Albert Howard.
