Some Counties Still Looking For Recount Reimbursement

Some county officials in Minnesota say they’re still waiting to be reimbursed for the gubernatorial recount.

Officials say they’ve sent a number of letters to Republican candidate Tom Emmer and the state Republican Party seeking reimbursement for making copies of documents, and for hours worked by election officials.

In Stearns County, election spokesman Dave Walz would not say how much the county is owed by the GOP.  But he says staff made a number of copies requested by Emmer’s campaign, but they never sent the copies to the campaign because they require a payment up front, which never came.  Sherburne County Auditor Diane Arnold says her county is owed nearly $60 from the Republican party.  And Benton County’s Karri Thorston says they are not owed anything.

State Republican Party spokesman Mark Drake says they have received no complaints about nonpayment.
