The recount always favors the Democrat or, at worst, doesn't hurt enough to lose. Murkowski showed in 2010 she isn't much of a Republican, either.

The problem also rears its head in Congressional elections.
Scott Murphy won NY20 on a recount.
Eric Massa won NY29 on a major irregularity that showed him winning solid red Cattaraugus County. It was upheld on recount. He resigned in disgrace a year later.
Bill Owens won NY23 narrowly over Doug Hoffman.The recount showed thousands of missed Hoffman votes but not enough for Owens to lose.

Something always happens to the absentee military votes too.

If you control the system sufficiently to get away with election fraud the first time around, then you control the system sufficiently to engage in fraud in recounts.
