Lippert: Idaho Children Not For Sale

On her Facebook wall, incumbent Michelle Lippert offers this rallying cry for those who supported her successful defense of her Post Falls School Board seat versus a Reagan Republican candidate: “Let's get the referendums signed and send a message to Boise. Our children are not for sell to the highest online provider. The opinion of parents and teachers count. Luna’s plan benefits for-profit education providers, not the children of Idaho.” Responding to a comment on the post, she said she asked Dave Paul to consider asking for a recount in his 4-vote loss to Reagan Republican candidate Bonnie Beaulieu, noting that there was a ballot problem at the Prairie View polling place.

Question: Should Dave Paul seek a recount of his 4-vote loss to Bonnie Beaulieu? Let it go? Or sue, as Jim Brannon did in his narrow loss to Coeur d'Alene Councilman Mike Kennedy after the 2009 city election?
