Republicans to contest Wash. governor's race
Republicans to contest Wash. governor's race

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 /

That will give us precedence to revote in Ohio.

3. Gee, this could be fun

After all the selfrighteous whining and idiocy, does he even stand a chance in a revote?

I just don't see it. I don't even see the Washington Supreme Court finding a sufficient basis in that crap for a do-over.

Can't the Gregoire people just send him a bill ($1 million, for wasting taxpayer money) and file a civil suit for 'creating a public nuisance' or a criminal 'conspiracy to commit grand theft' or something of the kind? Broad discovery orders with aggressive plaintiff attorneys in civil lawsuits have astonishing effects on crooked and shitheaded defendents.

4. Rossi stands no chance in revote.
If I recall correctly, there were a number of 3rd party candidates that shared opposition votes with gregoire (sp?)

If a revote occurs, the lions share of those votes will belong to G.

Wasn't G. a write-in candidate the first time around anyway?
