Now everyone is concerned about the security of the ballots.

Does the mayor not trust the Michigan State Police? Or does he know what can happen to a ballot box that lies unattended? Whatever the reason, the Mayor's lawyers have asked for and received Wayne County Sheriff's protection in addition to the State Police. This is all in preparation for the recount that was called for by the Hendrix campaign, which lost the election by 15,000 votes.

UPDATE: Chief Judge Mary Beth Kelly has struck down Kilpatrick's request for additional protection of the ballots.
