The Democrats continue their theft in broad daylight:
After a bitter and protracted recount fight in the Washington governor’s race, elections officials announced Wednesday that the Democratic candidate, Christine O. Gregoire, was leading her Republican opponent by 10 votes – a minuscule margin but a stunning reversal of the Nov. 2 election results.
The preliminary results elated Democratic Party officials and came only hours after the party scored another victory, when the State Supreme Court agreed with the Democrats’ contention that more than 700 newly discovered and erroneously disqualified ballots in heavily Democratic King County should now be considered.
Since those ballots came from a county where Ms. Gregoire, 57, already had a solid lead, the ruling could allow her to increase her extraordinarily tiny edge in a race that is the closest in state history and one of the closest in the nation’s history.
The day’s events dealt a serious blow to state Republicans and Dino Rossi, 45, a businessman and former state senator, who had been certified the winner of the Nov. 2 vote after eking out a margin of 261 votes out of almost three million cast. He later won a machine recount by 42 votes.
Got it, now? Demand a recount, then run around and contact only Demcrats who have challenged ballots. Then ‘find’ some uncounted ballots in King County. Demand another recount. Shit. Still short. Recanvas, find some more ballots in King County. Insist on hand recount, despite it being much less reliable. Just in case you still don’t have the lead, make sure there are a couple hundred more King County ballots ‘found.’
This was their vision for Florida in 2000. This is what they wanted in Ohio this year. At least the Republicans are fighting back:
Whatever the final results, they are almost certain to be contested.
“This count, this election, is not over,” said Chris Vance, the chairman of the state Republican Party. The Supreme Court, he said, “basically threw the door open to start all over again. I think that’s crazy.”
He said Republicans planned to “show up at 9 a.m.” on Thursday “on the doorstep of every county auditor with people whose votes weren’t counted for Dino Rossi.”
Again- ‘count every vote’ really means ‘count thevotes until the Democrat wins.’
BTW- why do the Democrats feel so confident with the results of the third recount? Why should this one be considered accurate and final? The first two weren’t.
