Vote Recount for Washington Governor Tips to Democrat
New York Times ^ | December 23, 2004 | Sarah Kershaw

Posted on 12/23/2004 7:14:37 AM PST by MurryMom

SEATTLE, Dec. 22 - 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.

I didn't read all the NY Slimes article. Since MM put that in the comments section, I assumed it was HER saying that.

And, of coursse, we all know what happens when one "ASSUMES" something.

Now, now, be easy on MurryMom. Those group therapy sessions had to be quite mentally draining.

First off, your ijit candidate Gorebot didn't wasnt ALL the ballots counted. Only in selected DemencRAT 'strongholds'.

That is where they've gone fishing for votes this time as well. Pennsylvania was a closer presidential race than Ohio was but the Democrats wanted to flip another state, not lose one. Keep counting until they win. That's all.

When Rossi was ahead (before all ballots were hand counted) he demanded that Gregoire concede.

Asking Rossi to concede now is consistent with the goose-and-gander rule. May I assume from the indignant tone of your question that you don't subscribe to the G-A-G rule?

If the Supremes had allowed hand counting of all ballots in FL in 2000 there's no doubt Al Gore would have won, too.

You know, in the real world, one needs facts to make assertions. You're wrong again.

Face it, each and every count and recount in Florida came up with one winner and one winner only: George W. Bush.

And notice how the pathetic dems have to focus on one state and ignore the standards used in all others. In 2000 it was Florida, in 2004 it was Ohio. Lame lame lame and sad sad sad.

And your attitude amounts to "How DARE a Republican even run in an election! Why, we dems are the rulers by right or by might!".

Just listen to yourself and then hang your head in shame.

Translation: If we [Democrats] can get away with vote fraud, we will do it. If we can't, the Republicans are the big, bad bullies.

You've got *that* right ((((Meekie))))

NOW the dems will demand everyone to stop counting, demand election certification and declare victory

Sorry, I assumed you were sarcastic because you've been around here since 1998 and your comments about Gore are so contrary to reality. My mistake. Sorry. I guess you weren't being sarcastic. Just ignorant.

You're just mad because for once all the ballots were counted.

No, they weren't. I've got some extra right here. 21 of them. They all say "Rossi".
