Burying the Lede

Via "EsnRedshirt" at The Daily Kos:

In an article in The Nation on the New Hampshire recount, but not until page 2 after the various "not much changed" portion of the story, you can read this:

Nonetheless, when the counters return after Thanksgiving, they'll still have some technical problems to resolve. The hand count of a third precinct showed roughly 100 fewer presidential votes than the optical-scan machines had, and will likely have to be recounted yet again. And in a fourth one, a local Republican candidate being recounted was awarded 105 more votes than he had before. Was the problem Diebold or somebody in the counting room? The answer will soon be clear.

Yeah, what's a hundred votes per precinct?
