Via Instapundit, there's news in Washington:
At least eight people who died well before the November general election were credited with voting in King County, raising new questions about the integrity of the vote total in the narrow governor's race, a Seattle Post-Intelligencer review has found.
The evidence of votes from dead people is the latest example of flaws in an election already rocked by misplaced votes and allegations that there were thousands more votes counted than actual voters.
County officials say they are investigating the cases pointed out by the P-I. "These are not indications of fraud," said Bill Huennekens, King County's elections supervisor. "Fraud is a concerted effort to change an election."
The P-I review found eight people who died weeks before absentee ballots were mailed out, between Oct. 13 and 15, but were credited with voting in King County. Among them was an 81-year-old Seattle woman who died in August but is recorded as having voted at the polls.
The state is required by law to send monthly lists of the deceased to county auditors so they can purge those names from their voter rolls. But those lists are sent only every few months. That means thousands of deceased voters may have been sent absentee ballots.
"If we don't receive a notice that they're dead, then we have no way of taking them off the rolls," said Dean Logan, the county's elections director. Relatives of the deceased can and do cancel some registrations, he said.
Doris McFarland said she voted for her husband, Earl, who died Oct. 7.
"I called up the elections board and said, 'Can I do it because he wanted me to vote?' " the Duvall woman said. "The person ... said, 'Well, who would know?' I said, 'I don't want to do anything that is wrong.' "
Huennekens disputed that election workers would say such a thing.
My buddy Cam Edwards wonders if these are "zombie voters" and is calling Democratic gubernatorial candidate Christine Gregoire "Queen of the Undead."
Dead voters are not an indication of fraud. The Soviet Union couldn't have said it better.
George Romero ping (the zombies are supposed to be smarter in the next one-Land of the Dead)
A coup d'etat has taken place. Pure and simple.
The dead have risen to walk the earth,...
and vote for democRATs.
"County officials say they are investigating the cases pointed out by the P-I. "These are not indications of fraud," said Bill Huennekens, King County's elections supervisor. "Fraud is a concerted effort to change an election."
Dead people voting is not fraud? I thought that only applied in Cook County.
So, is the election officially over and the democrat won by fraud?
Not really so strange if you think about it. The Democrats ran a Zombie as their candidate. At least he looked like one to me. Had about as much charisma as one, also.
Any single voter who votes more than once, or votes on a dead person's ballot has intent of influencing an election. If you don't hold the same opinion, you have not business serving on an election board, much less being its head. It's against the law to vote more than once.
Dems rushing back to the graveyeard after voting
Boss Tweed would be proud.
He's going to court with an airtight case to overthrow this attempted coup d' etat!!! 70% of Washington Voters want a Re-Vote. Go Dino!!!
You've got to be kidding me. This moron actually SAID this?
Let every demonrat vote count!/sarcasm
Bullcrap! I'll bet dollars to Dem promises that the criminal code says nothing about a "concerted effort".
" and is calling Democratic gubernatorial candidate Christine Gregoire "Queen of the Undead.""
Queen of the "Recently Arisen"!
And Christine proclaims, "I am the resurrection and the light..."
Doesn't matter. State law does not require outright fraud to be proven in order to nullify an election. You only have to show that there are enough illegal votes to call the result into question.
"Queen of the Undead."
You realize this means that Gregoire and the Democrats out WA way is really LeStadt, and so is a vampire. Grab your garlic, CROSSES, and wooden stakes!
