Ober the Re-Counter

everything tastes better with bacon
Like Monty Python's Black Knight who, despite losing four limbs in battle, refuses to concede defeat, perennial candidate Jim Oberweis is a glutton for punishment.

Even though he declared victory on election night and flew to Washington DC for a new-Congressman orientation, Oberweis now wants a recount in the 14th Congressional District. Why? Because he lost by 5,356 votes:
Illinois election results: Oberweis asks for 'discovery recount' after Underwood's projected win in 14th District race
'Mr. Oberweis falsely declared victory with more than 20,000 votes outstanding. Now that he's officially lost, he wants a recount,' Underwood for Congress spokeswoman said
A dyed-in-the-wool spokesman for Ex-President Donald J Trump said: "Be sure to also steal some votes for Trump while you're at it!"

Endless recounts. Good strategy, Jimbo. Now hire me, too, and on your behalf I’ll file endless incoherent lawsuits covered in sweat and hair dye. Press conferences at the Four Seasons are extra. Complimentary are rounds of golf with President Cheesy Poof while G20 Summits take place.
