When last we heard from Darrell Sorrels, he was asking for a recount in the race for Oklahoma County Sheriff, which he lost by a mere, um, 74,000 votes.
Check the floor for stray fabric, because Sorrels has thrown in the towel:
Wednesday afternoon, the Oklahoma County Election Board announced that Sorrels’ attorney, Stephen Jones, stopped the recount.
That’s because across 14 precincts, Sorrels had a net gain of only one vote.
About 90 percent of the $25,800 recount cost paid by Sorrels via check from something called Enterprise Investments, Inc. will be refunded.
In other news, Stephen Jones apparently now has his own Wikipedia page, which needless to say does not link to this.
Update, 16 November: Sorrels is now being sued for some “defamatory” material on his Facebook page.
