    House Republicans will need to pass their tax plan for a second time after the Senate parliamentarian ruled that provisions in the bill violated the rules governing the legislation. "Members are advised that we expect Senate Democrats to insist on a Byrd Point of Order on the Conference Report to Accompany H.R. 1, which is likely to be sustained," said guidance from House Majority Whip Steve Scalise's office, which was sent to GOP lawmakers. "As such, Members are further advised that an additional procedural vote on the Motion to Concur is expected tomorrow morning, which will clear the bill for...

    Despite Israel’s undertaking of last-ditch diplomatic efforts, the revote at UNESCO today on a controversial resolution denying the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount and Western Wall yielded the same result as before. Earlier, Mexico relieved its UNESCO representative, Andres Roemer, from his position, after he refused to vote for the anti-Israel resolution — in opposition to Mexico’s official stance. …
  • Again? Third of Germans want fresh elections

    One in three Germans want a second election, a survey released on Thursday showed—just hours before talks were set to start between Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU/CSU) and the Green Party to explore a potential coalition partnership. Merkel’s CDU/CSU, despite securing its most convincing win since German reunification, was caught out by the dramatic events of election night. Not only did her party just fall short of an absolute majority needed to rule alone, but the chancellor’s previous coalition partners, the Free Democrats (FDP) were booted out of parliament. … In the 30-44 age bracket, 40 percent would support fresh...

    ..And one lawsuit still pending I have not watched any media coverage after Romney conceded the election on Tuesday night. Why bother? It's just the same old noise we hear every four years. The talking heads spew nothing but meaningless "should have" or "could have" or "did't do this" while completely avoiding the massive amount of problems with vote fraud in all its forms. Fine, let them talk while we fight. Also, stop with the "America RIP" rhetoric. That plays right into the hands of the destroyers. It fosters nothing but a sense of defeat instead of I am a...
  • Peter Durant (R) wins in 6th District by 56 votes (Massachusetts - GOP pickup)

    05/10/2011 8:20:04 PM PDT · by LdSentinal · 20 replies
    Republican Peter J. Durant won the 6th Worcester District seat in today's special election for state representative, beating incumbent Geraldo Alicea, D-Charlton, by 56 votes, 3,325 to 3,269. The two men have been sparring at the ballot box and in the courtroom since November when the razor thin election results put Mr. Durant ahead by two votes, and a Superior Court judge later ruled the election was a tie and ordered a new election. After the court ordered the new election, Peter J. Boria, a Charlton selectman, and Robert J. Cirba, of Spencer, a Spencer-East Brookfield school committee member, declared...

    Tax Revolt and Recall Protest draws 15,000 Fullerton – An estimated crowd of 15,000 people showed up at a tax revolt and recall protest hosted by The John & Ken Show of radio station KFI 640. The hyperactive John Kobylt and immaculately groomed Ken Chiampou prodded the crowd into chants of "heads on a stick" and "off with their heads" several times during the three hour event, referring to lazy legislators and the lying governor. Some people brought bloody effigy heads of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and stuck them on the end of a pike, while the crowd joined their hosts...

    SCRANTON, Penn. - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton Saturday said she supported a plan being developed by Michigan Democrats to hold a new primary in June. "It needs to get resolved and hopefully Michigan by the end of this week will have done that," Clinton told reporters on her campaign plane between stops in Pennsylvania. "I think they are moving in an appropriate direction to have a revote." Under the plan being finalized by several Democratic members of Congress and other party leaders in Michigan, the state would hold a new primary in early June — most likely on June 3...

    I don’t get it. Like Karl says, neither one of them has a rational interest in compromising; I’d go a step further and say neither one of them (but especially Obama) has an interest in holding new elections. Hillary has more of an interest, of course, since she’ll likely win and pick up delegates, but as we’ve discussed, the pick-up will be marginal and Obama’s likely to do better in the popular vote this time around now that he’s the frontrunner. The popular vote is what she cares about since it buttresses her moral case for the nomination before the...

    For a moment, it looked like party leaders were marching toward a Florida revote. But Obama's campaign signaled today that the mechanics would be an obstacle, and Florida's congressional delegation just took a hard line against a re-vote in a joint statement: Washington, DC – The Members of Florida’s Democratic Delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives issued the following statement regarding the seating of Florida’s delegates at the DNC National Convention this August. “We are committed to working with the DNC, the Florida State Democratic party, our Democratic leaders in Florida, and our two candidates to reach an expedited...

    Dem Dirty Tricks in Florida [Greg Pollowitz] So, why do they really want a mail-in revote in Florida? From Dan Gelber's blog (Gelber is Minority Leader of the Florida House of Representatives): The major reason is that the revote, in addition to making sure Florida voters are heard, should also be a party building exercise. Returned ballots (because of address changes) will help us dramatically improve our voter database. If appropriate we could also ask Democrats to voluntarily give us their emails and telephone numbers so we can communicate with them in November and beyond. All this would help us...

    On Wikipedia's site in regards to the Florida legislatures overwhelming decision to buck the DNC and go with their own front-loading primary date, I noticed an amazing coincidence:The Florida legislature voted via House Bill 537 to move forward the date of their state's primary to January 29th, causing a chain reaction which moved many other states’ primaries and caucuses to much earlier dates. The vote passed with bipartisan support 118 to 0 in the House, 37 to 2 in the Senate.Now many of you may recall that after the tussle between the Florida Supreme Court and the US Supreme Court...

    King County Elections Director Dean Logan yesterday said his staff had used "flawed methodology" but hadn't attempted to falsify a report on absentee ballots cast in the contested November election. Yet even as Logan sought to control damage from revelations about the ballot report, a manager testified that Elections Superintendent Bill Huennekens knew in November that the report was inaccurate. Huennekens didn't inform his boss or the county canvassing board, which certifies election results. Garth Fell, assistant superintendent of ballot processing and delivery, said in a newly released legal deposition that Huennekens was aware of the flaws before the canvassing...

In the first photo, you see some of the letters on the top of the graduation caps worn by accounting graduates spell: "A-C-C-O-U-N-T-I-N-G": In the second photo, with Gov. Christine Gregoire delivering her commencement speech, you see an "A" added and a "C" subtracted and the letters scrambled to reveal what 11 WSUers think about Gregoire's controversial election victory over Repub Dino Rossi: "C-O-U-N-T A-G-A-I-N."

    More reports of dead people receiving ballots or voters receiving multiple ballots for Valley Medical Center's all-mail election have some voters again shaking their heads in frustration. Four people reported to the Journal this week that their dead relatives were mailed ballots for the special election. They joined another man upset last week when his son who died two years ago was mailed a ballot. Already inundated by reports of election malfunctions in King County from last November's governor's race, voters are much more sensitive to any irregularities, especially when they show up in their mailboxes.

    The discovery of uncounted ballots in a King County elections facility could change the tenor of the governor's-election lawsuit, and it comes just as Republicans fine-tune their case in the final weeks before trial and drop some previously high-profile claims. Already, attorneys for both sides say the news of 94 uncounted, valid absentee ballots means scrambling to change plans for last-minute collection of evidence. They will expand the list of officials they want to question under oath and will change the nature of questions they'll ask King County's top two election officials, who were already scheduled for depositions.

    IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON, it may be that a governor will serve for the next four years who was not properly elected. Voter registration rolls and election practices are sloppy enough--not just in Washington, mind you, but in many places--that in very close elections it may be impossible to know for sure which candidate has received more properly cast votes. (In three separate counts in Washington, the margins were 261, 42, and 129 votes out of 2.9 million cast.) It is past time we address this problem, and here's a thought: Maybe the United States should require eligible citizens...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - The 11 contestants left on Fox's reality hit "American Idol" are getting another shot at stardom. Phone numbers that allowed viewers to pick their favorite contestant were incorrectly displayed during Tuesday's show, prompting a re-vote during the show scheduled to air Wednesday, the network said in a statement. Phone lines will remain open for two hours following the episode, when another singer will be booted off this week by viewers. The contestant with the fewest votes goes home. In the running are Bo Bice, Anthony Fedorov, Constantine Maroulis, Anwar Robinson, Scott Savol, Nikko Smith, Mikalah Gordon,...

    Wednesday March 02, 2005--Dino Rossi, the man who narrowly lost the race to be Washington's Governor last November, holds a slight lead over incumbent Senator Maria Cantwell in a hypothetical Election 2006 match-up. Rossi attracts 47% of the vote to Cantwell's 44% in a survey of 500 Likely Voters conducted February 22, 2005. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Rossi leads by 7 points among men and trails by 1 among women. A Republican victory in the "Blue State" of Washington would go against the recent trend of Senate elections...
