Washington Governor's Race Insanity

Efforts continue to steal the election from Dino Rossi. King County is discovered uncounted ballots here and there, to the tune of 723 new ballots! However, efforts to add these new ballots to the already-completed election were blocked by a judge.

At any rate, the hand recount continues, and the latest update I saw was that Rossi was still ahead and that those extra ballots in King County were needed to manufacture a win for Gregoire.

No matter how nasty this goes, I think the next Senate race in Washington will be very interesting. Maria Cantwell is not exactly a sharp tack and the GOP will be pretty brassed off no matter how this election fares. What the difference will be is who will run for the seat.

Keep watching Sound Politics for updates.

I don't think if is fair to have Gregguire keep asking for recounts until she wins. Then turn around and tell Rossi that he needs to face it that he lost. That is bull! I liked Rossi from the beginning.

For them to count the 723 votes was unfair also because they were illegal votes from Children and dead people who had died a wk or two before the election.

How does Gregguire feel about showing kids that the correct way to win the governer's office was to cheat?! She is not a role model for children. I definitely don't want my children to grow up thinking they can cheat to get what they want. Rossi worked really hard to get his winning votes and I feel he should rightly get the office. I want us to have a revote.

We want a revote. We don't think it is right that Rossi was way ahead of Gregguire then they found the 723 votes and counted them in.
