Republicans to contest Wash. governor's
Republicans have no problem contesting elections, despite all the baloney they were spouting on 1/6/05 about the Democrats. First, California, where they managed to overturn a duly elected Grey Davis, now this. Yet if democrats "question" an election...we are "sore losers" This is why 1/6/05 was so important & why I had hoped our party would have stood & voted together. Rep Conyers investigation isn't even completed. Yet we should back off. Watch how these republicans handle it. They will stop at nothing, despite what you call them. Perhaps that is why I am so angry with those democrats who refused to back Senator Boxer with their votes.

Republican challenges Washington vote
Democrat won governors election by 129 after two recountsThe Associated Press
BELLEVUE, Wash. - Republican Dino Rossi and the state GOP announced Friday they will contest the gubernatorial election that gave his Democratic foe, Christine Gregoire, a 129-vote victory.


Republicans have been building a case over the past few weeks, gathering evidence of voting irregularities, including illegal provisional ballots and a handful of votes cast by dead people. They are pushing for a revote, an unprecedented step in a statewide election. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6793577 /

1. The repubs need to
shut up and sit down! Those whining repubs need to get over it. They LOST. They are such cry babies. God everyone knows that they lost fair and square. They must have forgot to set those machines up to add extra votes for the repubs. Oh well they missed some...!

If you read the story,there's not much of a chance of it changing anything.

No court will find this election should be set aside, Democratic Party attorney Jenny Durkan said. Even if illegal votes were cast, she said, it would not change the outcome of the election.
