I got a call from Jules Smith yesterday. He apologized for Rice interrupting me and not letting me make my full statement. He also indicated she should have let Eileen and Kishan talk as we had agreed. When asked, he acknowledged that the marked up ballots were not counted and disqualified as not being in conformance with the by-laws. I believe some members would be surprised since the indication was that they would be counted.
