As reported in today’s Seattle P-I, the Democrats are challenging the bogus voter registration challenge-cum-intimidation scheme the Republicans trod out just days before last Tuesday’s election.

Democratic lawyer David McDonald said Monday state law requires the challenger to supply the actual address at which the challenged voter resides — something Sotelo did not do.

“The law is pretty clear,” he said, adding that the challenges should be dismissed out of hand.

I’ve obtained a PDF of McDonald’s letter to Dean Logan, but the gist of his legal argument is a fairly simple one. RCW 29A.08.830 clearly states that “the person filing the challenge must furnish the address at which the challenged voter actually resides.” If that’s not clear enough, the Voter Registration Challenge Form, as defined by WAC 434-324-115 restates that requirement twice:

If the challenge is based on residence, RCW 29A.08.830 requires the challenger to provide the address at which the challenged voter actually resides.

Yet the Republicans made absolutely no effort to verify the challenged voters’ actual residences. Instead, they just creatively enhanced the Challenge Form, adding on a new check box:

Voter Registration Challenge Form

Pretty sneaky, huh? Too lazy and irresponsible to do the work necessary to provide the voter’s actual address, as required by law, the Republicans simply concocted a new category for challenging a voter’s registration, and tacked it onto the end of the form. Go check out WAC 434-324-115… there is no sixth check box! Sotelo & Company made it up!

I checked with King County Records & Elections; the form the KC GOP used was not the standard form provided by the state or the county. Thus there can be absolutely no possible way to chalk this up to human error or an innocent misreading of the law. Knowing that they had not done due diligence, and had not met the requirements of the voter registration challenge provisions, the Republicans intentionally modified the challenge form to suit their needs.

Thus Lori Sotelo’s affidavits were not only perjurious… they bordered on fraud.

Why would the Republicans file nearly 2000 bogus voter registration challenges when they knew they would likely not hold up in court? I can think of only two reasons: a) this was part of a campaign of voter suppression and intimidation the GOP has been pursuing nationwide, and b) it was a desperate, last minute PR stunt… the death-cry of their yearlong campaign to discredit KCRE, and by association, Ron Sims and the Democrats.

If it was merely the latter, it explosively backfired. Due to the GOP’s unwillingness to do the work required by law, hundreds of voters were wrongly challenged, either through dumbfuck errors (like apartment buildings Sotelo claimed not to exist) or through a cynical misrepresentation of state law. Many of the challenged voters live in house boats or in commercial buildings… “nontraditional” addresses WAC 434-208-100 clearly contemplates:

No person registering to vote, who meets all the qualifications of a registered voter in the state of Washington, shall be disqualified because of a nontraditional physical address being used as a residence address. Nontraditional addresses may include shelters, parks or other identifiable locations which the voter deems to be his/her residence. Voters using such an address will be registered and precincted based on the location provided.

Just because an address appears to be nonresidential does not mean it is an invalid registration address. That is why the law requires the challenger to provide evidence of the voter’s actual address.

Ironically, McDonald concludes his letter by citing the precedent set by Judge Bridges in the GOP’s failed contest lawsuit.

As a result of the recent close Gubernatorial election, this State has recently undergone extensive litigation concerning the meaning of its election laws. One of the clearest judicial results in that exercise was the decision by Judge Bridges that voters could not be stripped of their votes (or registrations) based on just such assumptions. [...]

Those principles were not enshrined by the Legislature and recognized by Judge Bridges simply to make it difficult to challenge elections or voter registrations. It shouldn’t be easy for a private party to challenge a voter’s registration and our state’s law plainly imposes specific and high standards. A challenge which fails to include essential, statutorily-required elements is patently insufficient to meet those standards.

In relentlessly attacking KCRE, the Republicans hope to add weight to the myth they’ve perpetuated, that Democrats somehow “stole” the 2004 gubernatorial election. But there’s a reason why they cannot find a single auditor to support their allegations that KCRE is rife with fraud, corruption and incompetence… why a Republican Secretary of State and a Republican County Prosecutor have dismissed their charges while Republican federal prosecutors refuse to investigate… and why a cherry-picked, elected judge in a Republican county dismissed their case with prejudice. It has no merit!

The Republicans hope that if they puff out a thick enough smokescreen, voters will eventually see fire. But I think voters are smarter than that, for rather than discrediting KCRE, stupid, cynical stunts like this one end up discrediting the accusers.

What the GOP has proven here is not that there are thousands of illegal registrations, or that KCRE refuses to do its job, but that GOP leaders are more than willing to disenfranchise innocent voters for the sake of a cheap, publicity stunt…. or worse. Every “reform” the Republicans champion is intended to suppress the vote, and whether you believe this is based on a cynical electoral strategy or a sincere philosophical difference, the result is the same. Should the Republicans have their way, thousands of legal, WA voters would be purged from the roles, while tens of thousands more would have their ballots discarded as unreadable by the vote counting machines.

Our state elections laws strike a delicate balance between preserving the integrity of the voter rolls, and protecting the franchise of eligible voters. Given the opportunity, the GOP would clearly tip this balance steeply in the wrong the direction.

UPDATE:
A week after the election, Sotelo today rescinded 12 more challenges.

It’s pretty simple and your post is entirley too long.

If they have done this illegally, the parties responsible should be held to the fullest extent of the law.

2. LeftTurn spews:

Interesting that the right wing wackos want to hold any Dem’s feet to the fire on the smallest of technicalities, and then expect to get a free pass when their side violates the law. Lying thieving cowardly bastards – equals GOP!

3. proud leftist spews:

Changing an official form to add a new option represents a remarkable piece of sleight-of-hand. Why do the Republicans hate democracy so much? What is it about the rule of law that gets their panties in such a twist? Fortunately, last week’s election results (912, 330, Ron Sims) demonstrate that they are an insignificant fringe in this state. Maybe they’ll just skulk off to their caves, or to Kansas, and leave our fair state alone.

4. Thomas Trainwinder spews:

What is the penalty for altering government forms? You say fraud…is that right?

What does this say about the possible penalty?

5. righton spews:

wow, left winger comes out for vote/voter integrity

Goldy, you missed all the fraud and irregularities a year ago; were you connected to the internet back then.

6. Seeking the truth spews:

I agree with the Republicans that King County has some serious voter issues. I don’t agree with the tactic they chose.

They left themselves looking like fools while not fixing the problem. In fact it has left the people commiting vote fraud and open door to do it again.

It just shows that no matter if there is a D or R next to the name, stupidity is universal.

7. Richard Pope spews:

Well, the law actually says that any voter registration challenge requires that the actual address of the challenged voter be provided:

RCW 29A.08.830
Affidavit — Administration, notice of challenge.

(1) Any registered voter may request that the registration of another voter be canceled if he or she believes that the voter does not meet the requirements of Article VI, section 1 of the state Constitution or that voter no longer maintains a legal voting residence at the address shown on his or her registration record. The challenger shall file with the county auditor a signed affidavit subject to the penalties of perjury, to the effect that to his or her personal knowledge and belief another registered voter does not actually reside at the address as given on his or her registration record or is otherwise not a qualified voter and that the voter in question is not protected by the provisions of Article VI, section 4, of the Constitution of the state of Washington. The person filing the challenge must furnish the address at which the challenged voter actually resides.

If interpreted literally, the law could make registration challenges of illegally registered voters impossible.

For example, if you register a non-existent name, such as Mickey Mouse or Felix The Cat, then filing a challenge would be impossible. Non-existent people don’t actually reside anywhere, so you can’t provide an actual residence address.

Similarly, if you get 500 Democrat activists from Massachusetts to registered at the Crossroads UPS Store in Bellevue, it would be very difficult to challenge them. Especially if the Bellevue UPS Store is given as their “residence address” and a UPS Store in Boston is given as their “mailing address”.

We could even get 1000 North Korean soldiers to register at Goldy’s house. They would be obviously non-U.S. citizens and non-residents of this state and obviously couldn’t all live with Goldy in any event. But unless the challenger could discover their actual residence address (a task basically impossible in the “Democratic” People’s Republic of Korea), no challenges could be filed and all these Commie soldiers could vote without impediment (and be defended by Demo lawyer David McDonald to boot).

re: #5 — “all the fraud and irregularities a year ago”

I’m sorry, what did I miss? Did the Secretary of State or a judge find fraud? Were there any indictments or convictions?

9. Roger Rabbit spews:

Add forgery to the list of potential felony charges against Sotelo.

10. Aaron spews:

Don’t confuse the trolls with facts! It’s much easier to allude to fraud by 500 North Koreans than to actually prove any such thing has occurred. Don’t deprive them of the opportunity to interfere with the voting rights of actual citizens in order to prevent the fictitious acts of boogie men.

11. Roger Rabbit spews:

@5

“Goldy, you missed all the fraud and irregularities a year ago; were you connected to the internet back then.”

What fraud? Republifucks spent $2 million of their own money proving there was NO FRAUD!!! In addition to being liars, they’re stoopid!!! Now we have evidence in hand of actual election fraud committed by Refucklicans. Lying stupid hypocrites!

12. Mark spews:

“Nontraditional addresses may include… identifiable locations which the voter deems to be his/her residence.”

Note the word residence. Now, both parks and shelters can be places where one resides. However, if one actually believes that a 6″ x 6″ x 12″ locked box is their residence, they are likely mentally incompetent since the smallest adult human being on record is just under two feet tall (and much too large for a PMB box). You could go all metaphysica on the subject, but then we could vote wherever we want and the rolls in SF would be overloaded with people who “left their heart in San Francisco.”

Language specifics aside, there is/was no excuse for the manner in which the KCGOP filed those challenges.

13. Goldy spews:

Richard @7,

Come on… I never house more than 20 Korean soldiers at my house at any one time. (My basement smells of kim-chee.)

The statute does not make challenges impossible, just difficult. As they should be. (As the GOP stunt proved necessary.)

The fact is, for the nearly 2000 people on their list, the GOP didn’t even attempt to determine their actual address. They didn’t just fail to follow the law, they failed to attempt to follow the law.

14. s-choir spews:

re 7: Yes , Richard, that is such a plausible scenerio. Another thing we could do is to get 1 person to register a thousand times at a garbage dump. Then we could buy 1,000 fake moutaches and have that person change disguises 1,ooo times and hand in “provisional ballots” for each “voter”. Then we could get Roger Rabbit/Dean Logan to tally the 1,000 ballots for the Leninist/Trotskyite/Stalinist Democrats.

I don’t want to reveal too much, but that generally is how it’s done– with alot of help from Roger Rabbit/Dean Logan. We can’t vote Felix the Cat because although we can assign him an address, we cannot provide cartoons with corporeal bodies. Don’t get a hardon Richard: I said corporeal, not corporate.

15. Erik spews:

>UPDATE:

Nice. But the damage was done.

They successfully kept valid voters from voting through their bogus tactics. They were hoping that it would be enough to make a difference in the election and they might be able to just get off with a fine later.

Next time, perhaps they will send a challenge notice to every King County voter, reduce turnout by 10 percent there and win the US Senate race.

21. windie spews:

typical rightie troll. Can’t tell the difference between ‘editing a document to make illegal claims’ and ‘there was fraud in 2004 ’cause I said so!’

I’m not 100% sure, but hasn’t KC removed like 90000 inactive registrations from the rolls anyways?

22. Richard Pope spews:

Actually, the law has to be interpreted in its context. Dean Logan is interpreting the challenge law with the proper context.

Providing the actual residence address is intended only for the situation where the voter has CHANGED RESIDENCES. If they registered at a valid residence to begin with (and are otherwise qualified), you have to prove they are living at a different residence in order to disqualify them on that basis.

If a voter is no longer living (i.e. dead) or never was alive (at least as a human being — i.e. Mickey Mouse, Felix The Cat, Roger Rabbit), you don’t have to prove their actual residence, since that would be ridiculous.

If you have 500 folks at Goldy’s address for their “residence” who list an army unit from the “Democratic” People’s Republic of Korea, you don’t have to prove where they actually live either.

And if you have 100 or more folks listing a given UPS Store as their “residence”, they get disqualified because they never lived there in the first place — NOT because they have “changed” their residential address since registering. And you shouldn’t have to prove where they actually live either.

This makes perfect sense when applied to a mailbox address challenge. In order to register in the first place, a voter has to “prove” where they live by stating their actual residence address under penalty of perjury. If a voter failed to prove an actual residence address when they registered, a challenger should not be required to prove an actual residence address either.

I would finally note that it is easier to trace a person’s actual current residence address, when they provided their actual former residence address to begin with. If a voter makes that task more difficult by providing a blatantly false mailbox “residence” address to begin with, why should the challenger be faced with the extra burden?

23. Mountain Man spews:

Great Scoop – how embarrassing for Logan to send out all those challenge letters based on incomplete voter challenges.

I wonder what Logan would have done it they added a box that said “Dance like a chicken”

24. Roger spews:

Are the right wing PINHEADS (oops, sorry) just plain stupid? Here’s a legitimate case of fraud, and the best they can do is allude to something that never happened as a reason to let this slip?

If you had a boss as incompetent as Vance is, co-workers as fucked up as the ultra-right religious zealots are, and a company clearly as screwed as the Republican party is, you’d quit in an instance unless you were just a total idiot.

I hope Lori is at least bisexual because she’s going to get a chance for some woman-loving inside one of our state’s institutions for reform. Who would be such an idiot to allow his/her name to appear on such a fraudulent document?

25. righton spews:

Yawn,

Hmmmm. And Mahmoud also said his Nuke program was just for “peaceful” purposes. Okaaay……. He went on to say the the rest of us White Infidel Devils will perish in the Hell of our fathers. What ever that means.

“Actually, the law has to be interpreted in its context. Dean Logan is interpreting the challenge law with the proper context.

Providing the actual residence address is intended only for the situation where the voter has CHANGED RESIDENCES.”

Huh? Can you cite the RCW for that? RCW 29A.08.830(1) does not support your claim. The first part of the paragraph states two of the beliefs that a challenger might have in order to challenge a voter (“Any registered voter may request that the registration of another voter be canceled if he or she believes that the voter does not meet the requirements of Article VI, section 1 of the state Constitution or that voter no longer maintains a legal voting residence at the address shown on his or her registration record.”).

The last part of the paragraph clearly states that “The person filing the challenge must furnish the address at which the challenged voter actually resides.” This statement is NOT conditional on either of the two reasons specified earlier in the paragraph. Hence the requirement must apply to both (or all) reasons under this part of the RCW.

“If they registered at a valid residence to begin with (and are otherwise qualified), you have to prove they are living at a different residence in order to disqualify them on that basis.”

Nope. Counterexample: if you challenge someone for mental incompetence based on Article VI Sec. I of the constitution, RCW 29A.08.830 clearly requires the current residence.

“If a voter is no longer living (i.e. dead) or never was alive (at least as a human being – i.e. Mickey Mouse, Felix The Cat, Roger Rabbit), you don’t have to prove their actual residence, since that would be ridiculous.”

A dead voter cannot be challenged under RCW 29A.08.830. Rather, RCW 29A.08.510 (3) applies–and it does not require an address of the dead person.

“If you have 500 folks at Goldy’s address for their “residence” who list an army unit from the “Democratic” People’s Republic of Korea, you don’t have to prove where they actually live either.”

Do you have case law or some other RCW to support your claim?

“If a voter makes that task more difficult by providing a blatantly false mailbox “residence” address to begin with, why should the challenger be faced with the extra burden? “

(1) because it is the law
(2) because it prevents abuses of the type the type the GOP committed.
(3) because it is part of due diligence.
(4) because it makes the administrative process of contacting the voter manageable.

Sloppy work, Richard. The predecessor statute (former RCW 29.59.010) of the current voter challenge statute (RCW 29A.08.810 et seq.) made explicitly clear what the purpose of furnishing the voter’s actual address is:

“(2) The registered voter filing such challenge must furnish the address at which the challenged voter actually resides in order to assure that proper notice will be received by the challenged voter.”

Nothing??

Hmmm … since Sotelo submitted the challenges on an unauthorized form, I wonder if that voids all the challenges? Maybe King County canvassing board shouldn’t even process them.

55. Michael spews:

What Goldy “forgot” to tell you all is that WAC 434-324-115 states that All county auditors shall maintain a supply of, and furnish to the public on request, forms substantially similar to the sample included below for the purpose of allowing a registered voter to challenge the registration of another voter pursuant to RCW 29A.08.830.

What it does NOT state is that you must use the form provided by the auditor in order to make a challenge. You can make up any form you want that “shall be substantially similar” to the sample form provided in WAC 434-324-115. If you believe that replacing “Please describe the factual basis for the voter registration challenge:” with “The individual challenged is registered at an address that is not a “valid residence address” as required by RCW 29A.08.110(1)…” has violated the mandate that the form be “substantially similar,” by all means file a lawsuit. But it isn’t anywhere near a forgery. By your definition signing your name would also make it a forgery, because your signature is not in WAC 434-324-115; writing on the form would deface it.

56. Michael spews:

@54 since Sotelo submitted the challenges on an unauthorized form

I assume you can show us the law that says you may only submit a voter registration challenge on the form that is marked “SAMPLE” in WAC 434-324-115.

57. David spews:

Michael, the forms Sotelo signed were not “substantially similar” to the form provided by statute. It differed markedly in substance. Adding a new category of voter challenge is a substantial change. And that’s not complying with the law.

And Goldy also conveniently failed to mention that the form described in the WAC is clearly marked as a “Sample,” like a last will and testament, you can simply write what you want done with your stuff and sign your name at the bottom if you want, there is no law saying you have to follow a specific form (you probably have to have witnesses and such for a will, but still you can free-form it if you want).

I am happy to report that since the GasTax proponents got their way defeating I-912 last week that traffic this past weekend actually got worse!!!! I was in Seattle Sunday & Monday and it was gawdawful!!! I saw lots of drivers BY THEMSELVES in their politically correct little cars with their Save the Earth bumperstickers sitting in mortal gridlock on I-5 and the AWV.
I would expect the politically correct CLOWNS to set a much better example than that!!
Some of them had pro-Mass Transit and “I Love Women with Hairy Underarms” bumperstickers too!!

For those ASSes who claim I don’t have original thought or I TROLL RIGHTY web sites, shove this up your ASSes! Fresh from the Washington Post this evening: – Woodward Was Told of Plame More Than Two Years Ago

By Jim VandeHei and Carol D. Leonnig
Washington Post Staff Writers
Wednesday, November 16, 2005; Page A01

Washington Post Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward testified under oath Monday in the CIA leak case that a senior administration official told him about CIA operative Valerie Plame and her position at the agency nearly a month before her identity was disclosed.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/11/15/AR2005111501857.html?nav=rss_nation

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Rove, said that Rove is not the unnamed official who told Woodward about Plame and that he did not discuss Plame with Woodward.

I can hear it now; “Damn Rove gets away again!” Awww shucks lefties, you guys played your hand too early! So one prediction true and when DeLay gets off I’ll be two for two!

Cross Posted on the other new thread!

I wonder what Rush will be crowing about on this news in the Washington Post tomorrow? Too bad I’ll be working hard during his show.

82. Dr. E spews:

I dunno PB, isn’t the bigger story here not that Rove wasn’t the leaker to Woodward, but rather that there is even more evidence that the administration was making a concerted effort to leak Plame’s name? That shouldn’t be something to be proud of… Of course, it also doesn’t make Woodward look that great either.

83. RUFUS spews:

Rush is off this week. He will be back on Monday. This is typical of the lying left who cant tell the truth if their lives depended on it.

Dr. E, that depends on whom was the leaker. I do want to know, eventhough she wasn’t covert. Did you read the CIA was worried that Aldrich Ames has outed her overseas in the 90s?

Also I liked the heavy handedness that Joe Wilson’s lawyers tried to do on Major General Paul Vallely when he claimed that Joe WIlson told him about his wife in 2002.

“”WorldNetDaily and I both were absolutely a little shocked on Saturday evening when we got an e-mail from Joe Wilson’s lawyers in Washington really asking us to 100 percent retract our statements that were made on the radio show,” Vallely told Fox. “I’m not gonna back down on the fact we had a casual conversation. The fact is we were there together, we didn’t agree on a lot of the things about the war, but we can agree to disagree.”

“The new German Government is launching one of the boldest experiments ever undertaken in the history of economics — or rather anti-economics. Germany in the past three years has been the world’s most depressed economy, with the weakest growth in economic activity and consumption. The coalition partners — representing, as they do, the opposite ends of the political spectrum — found it hard to find common ground on most issues, but on one point they could emphatically and enthusiastically agree: the way to stimulate an economy suffering from mass unemployment and stagnant consumption is to increase tax.”

Pudster–
These CLOWNS can actually justify someone ILLEGALLY registering using as their address of residence a NONEXISTENT address. Simply amazing! The address of residence is critical as one should only be able to vote in the County or Precindt where they actually reside. THAT IS THE POINT!
I doubt these ILLEGALLY registered CLOWNS actually live in little teeny-tiny mailboxes or storage units.
The legitimate question is where do they reside???
Otherwise, the Voter Registration Form should say under Address of Residence
ANYWHERE YOU PLEASE IS FINE!! GO AHEAD AND JUST MAKE SOMETHING UP!! IF YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT ESPECIALLY GO AHEAD AND WRITE DOWN ANY ADDRESS YOU WANT!!!!!!!
Logan has been extremely negligent in cleaning up the Voter Registration roles of obvious non-existent residential addresses. Logan denies responsibility and says you must challenge….but you have to find the ILLEGALLY registered voter.
Kind of like WHERE’S WALDO??

Reply to 56

“What it does NOT state is that you must use the form provided by the auditor in order to make a challenge.”

Oh yeah?

“WAC 434-324-115 Challenge of voter’s registration. All county auditors shall maintain a supply of, and furnish to the public on request, forms substantially similar to the sample included below for the purpose of allowing a registered voter to challenge the registration of another voter pursuant to RCW 29A.08.830. A copy of the form shall be sent to the voter, whose voter registration has been challenged and to the challenger pursuant to RCW 29A.08.840. The form shall be substantially similar to the following:”

Read this part again, carefully:

“All county auditors shall … furnish to the public on request, forms …. A copy of THE form …” (emphasis added)

THE form. Not “a” form, or any form, but “the” form as in THE form … “the form” refers to the “forms” referenced in the previous sentence which county auditors are to furnish to the public. Absolutely nothing in either the statute or the WAC rule says, implies, or even hints that the public can make up their own “substantially similar” forms. You are REQUIRED to use a form furnished by the county auditor.

Not sure I get your point, Puttybutt. I don’t see how Woodward’s testimony helps the Bushies. Since you don’t seem to understand, I’ll spell it out for you. An unnamed “senior administration official” was shopping Plame’s identity to the most prominent political reporter in D.C. a month before Novak outed her. That certainly makes it look like the administration wanted Plame’s status as a CIA agent revealed in the media, doesn’t it? And “senior administration official” doesn’t rule out Rove — but it does mean someone in a high position, not a flunky or minor underling. It’s damning, if you ask me.

Rabbit @ 48

Thanks for the statutory history and the case law providing some interpretation and context.

The main issues here with the address requirement seems to be due process (i.e. making sure the challenged voter gets reasonable notice) and proof (i.e. showing that the challenged voter has changed residences).

Obviously, this address requirement is not intended for the situation where 500 soldiers from the “Democratic” People’s Republic of Korea register to vote with Goldy’s address as their “residence” and an army unit in Pyongyang as their mailing address. Or if 500 members of the Unification Church register with my address as their “residence” and a Moonie church in Seoul as their mailing address.

Nor would it apply if non-existent people such as Mickey Mouse, Felix The Cat, or Roger Rabbit register to vote.

Nor should it apply if people register to vote using a “residence” address where they clearly do not and cannot live, such as a private mail box.

104. Roger Rabbit spews:

@87

As a lawyer, I am bound by my attorney’s oath to respect Supreme Court decisions as the supreme law of the land, regardless of whether I agree with them or not. That’s the way it is.

105. Richard Pope spews:

Wabbit @ 92

NOTHING in WAC 434-324-115 says that the CHALLENGER must use the form supplied by the county auditor.

WAC 434-324-115 requires the county auditor to “maintain a supply of, and furnish to the public on request, forms substantially similar to the sample”.

If a challenge is filed, WAC 434-324-115 further requires the county auditor to send a copy of this form “to the voter, whose voter registration has been challenged and to the challenger”.

If the challenger uses the form supplied by the county auditor, then WAC 434-324-115 is satisfied by the county auditor mailing a completed copy of the form to both the challenged voter and the challenger.

On the other hand, if the challenger does not use the form supplied by the county auditor, then WAC 434-324-115 would require the county auditor to mail a copy of the blank form supplied by the county auditor to both the challenged voter and the challenger. (Presumably the RCW and due process would also require that the challenged voter be mailed a copy of whatever non-standard challenge form was completed by the challenger.)

Presumably, Dean Logan screwed up by only mailing out copies of the non-standard challenge forms filed by Lori Sotelo, and failing to also mail out blank copies of the standard challenge forms that his office supplies.

Doofus @ 88

“What about the 100,000 military ballots that were not counted in Florida?”

B U L L S H I T

“Meanwhile, the controversy over military absentee ballots is growing. More than 1500 were thrown out for irregularities. Many of those did not have a postmark. Yesterday Democratic Attorney General Bob Butterworth, in a letter to the state’s 67 county election officials said those ballots should count.”

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/election/july-dec00/fl_11-21.html

“BLITZER: Well, getting every vote counted brings me to the point that a lot of U.S. military personnel … their votes were not counted. The Associated Press says, 2,200 or so overseas absentee ballots were counted, 1,400 were discarded, many from U.S. military personnel, for technical reasons; postmarks were not used. Shouldn’t those military overseas absentee ballots, all of them be counted, even if there were some technical problems?

“LIEBERMAN: Well, I think the benefit of the doubt has to be given to every voter here, who went to the trouble either to go to the polls … or to send in an absentee ballot …. My understanding is that these decisions on the absentee ballots were made by the local election officials. A lot of them, maybe most of them, in Florida, are Republicans …. But again, Al Gore and I want everybody who voted to have the maximum chance to have their vote counted. We would never countenance or approve or tolerate a policy that in any measure discriminated against our military personnel abroad when they try to vote.

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0011/19/le.00.html

“A New York Times investigation into overseas ballots that helped George W. Bush win the presidency found that Florida election officials, facing intense GOP pressure to accept military votes, counted hundreds of overseas absentee ballots that failed to comply with state election laws. … The newspaper’s six-month examination of the 2,490 overseas ballots accepted after Election Day found 680 questionable votes.”

http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/july01/2001-07-14-flawed-ballots.htm

Not only has 1,500 disputed ballots grown to 100,000 in Doofus’ overheated imagination, but he also overlooks the fact the Democratic candidates (Gore and Lieberman) pushed for counting questionable military ballots, and the fact Bush’s winning margin came from votes that were counted, but were not entitled to be counted under Florida law.

Where in the RCW does it say that the challenger must use the form supplied by the county auditor?

RCW 29.08.830(1) (in part) simply says: “The challenger shall file with the county auditor a signed affidavit subject to the penalties of perjury, to the effect that to his or her personal knowledge and belief another registered voter does not actually reside at the address as given on his or her registration record or is otherwise not a qualified voter and that the voter in question is not protected by the provisions of Article VI, section 4, of the Constitution of the state of Washington.”

Roger, you may be sworn to uphold the decisions of the Supreme Court as the law of the land, but legal precedent, as declared by our own government, does not require you to do so.

There’s no leeway there, Richard, either in sending the form, or in using the specified (i.e., county auditor’s) form. The law says what it says, and the law includes both RCW and WAC.

New Documents Reveal Saddam Hid WMDs, Was Tied to Al Qaida

Recently discovered Iraqi documents now being translated by U.S. intelligence analysts indicate that Saddam Hussein’s government made extensive plans to hide Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction before the U.S. invasion in March 2003 – and had deep ties to al Qaida before the 9/11 attacks.

Many times. Yet it is still not clear why the wabbit opposes abortion, or how strong the opposition is. Does wabbit think the unborn child is a person with rights equivalent to any other child? Is the wabbit’s opposition relatively mild or similar to an opposition to, say, air polution? Does opposition to David Irons warrant greater advocacy than opposition to abortion?

rujax206-158 ‘Blackmun and Berger EXPANDED rights not eliminated them..’

In Roe they dimissed the potential personhood of the unborn with an effective “I dunno”, which REMOVED basic human rights from millions of children since then. Increasing so-called “rights” for one group at the expense of another, more plentiful group is not expanding rights in general.

The topic was actually related to whether a SCOTUS decision of law must be followed if it is not morally right. I agree that there needs to be the rule of law, yet welcome agreement that many laws are morally wrong and should be changed. Perfect example – laws that made slavery “constitutional”.

162. yearight spews:

rujax206-160 ‘Besides…it’s “pro-birth” not “pro-life.” ‘

If the goal is to stop killing people before or after birth the correct term is pro-life. Pro-life is actually against euthanasia and the death penalty as well.

174. Roger Rabbit spews:

@159

“Does wabbit think the unborn child is a person with rights equivalent to any other child?”

Yes. Roger Rabbit thinks one of government’s highest duties is to protect society’s most vulnerable citizens, and unborn children certainly fit into this category. A fertilized egg, however, is not a child. Don’t ask me to tell you when a cell mass becomes a “child;” the Supreme Court couldn’t figure it out, and neither can I. Certainly at the point where it is a separate and sentient being, and I feel certain that occurs before the moment of birth.

However, Roger Rabbit is a pragmatist. Alcohol killed the best friend RR ever had, but RR doesn’t support prohibition, because our nation’s experiment with prohibition was a miserable failure. Human nature being as it is, RR doesn’t think prohibition works in the case of abortion, either. You have to raise your own children with the values you believe in, and you have to try to change the culture so people won’t want abortions, or won’t see abortion as a solution to the problem they’re trying to solve. That’s how you get rid of abortion. Laws can’t do it, just as laws couldn’t rid us of the harm inflicted by alcohol.

There is also a component of personal freedom in RR’s thinking on the topic of abortion. Roger Rabbit is not God. Roger Rabbit is a lowly 8 7/8-lb. rabbit. Some people have different religious or moral beliefs than RR, and it is not up to RR to shove his beliefs down the throats of you humans. If you humans can’t straighten out your religious and moral thinking, a lowly 8 7/8-lb. rabbit sure as hell can’t do it for you. If you get an abortion and God sends you to Hell for it, that’s your problem! And don’t say Roger Rabbit didn’t warn you!!!

The beautiful thing about Jesus, though, is that he promised God will forgive us NO MATTER WHAT WE’VE DONE. All we have to do to earn this grace is simply believe that Jesus is our Savior! So, even if you get an abortion, you won’t go to Hell if you believe in Christ and ask for forgiveness of your sins! What a beautiful thing! And to think the wingbat fascist trollfucks took a lovely religion and fucked it up and twisted it into a rationalization for war, torture, and killing people! Makes me want to puke … ugh … (barfing noises) … what’s really nauseating is the idea that God may even forgive these evil Republicans for all their shit in this life, if they believe in Jesus hard enough. Well, I don’t make the rules, and it’s not my place to tell God what to do. I’m just a lowly 8 7/8-lb. rabbit. I’m glad my mother didn’t abort me, because I like eating Stefan’s garden and shitting on his lawn, and I would’ve missed out on that. Next time you’re thinking about getting an abortion, think about all the pretty sunsets and playing in the snow and laughter &c. your kid is gonna miss out on if you go ahead with that abortion. But I’m just a lowly 8 7/8-lb. bunny and I can’t tell you what to do.

Another problem with the wingfuck idea of cramming their religious and moral beliefs down other humans’ throats is that it won’t work. Women will be killed in large numbers by dirty, dangerous, illegal abortions. That’s what you guys had before Roe v. Wade. Law enforcement and taxpayer resources will be tied up trying to enforce something that’s unenforceable. Legislatures will spend all their time arguing over abortion bills and nothing else will get done. You guys are barking up the wrong tree. You should become liberals and work for a society in which no one will be so desperate they feel forced to get an abortion, and every there will be a place and a welcome for every child who is born. No more unwanted children. That’s how you can get rid of abortion.

“Is the wabbit’s opposition relatively mild or similar to an opposition to, say, air polution?”

Roger Rabbit is a pragmatist. Long-term human survival depends on managing the planet’s environment and resources in a sustainable manner. On the other hand, we don’t want short-term pollution control measures to choke off the economy. A balance is necessary, and this balance seems to maximize environmental benefits and minimize adverse economic impacts at the point where government requires industry to use the best pollution control technology and management techniques available at a feasible cost. Businesses won’t do anything on their own because they have no internal incentives to invest in pollution reduction; every cent spent on this endeavor detracts from the bottom line. But not regulatingun pollution allows businesses to shift part of the real cost of production to citizens whose health is damaged by pollution, and to the future economy by damaging the planet’s ability to support a human population. Long-term, our best hope for a sustainable environment and economy is invention and innovation that eliminates or reduces pollution, or provides us with better and/or more cost effective pollution control techniques.

It is not meaningful to discuss an issue like air pollution in such terms as “is your opposition [to air pollution] mild.” The world has many problems that warrant serious attention and effort: War, hunger, disease, population growth, etc. As a practical matter, no single bunny or human can work on all of these problems at once; a division of labor is required. Roger Rabbit does not know anything about public health, biochemistry, physiology, etc., therefore RR is not working on preventing or curing any of the legion of diseases afflicting mankind and bunnyhood. Roger Rabbit’s role in society involves the creation, maintenance, and functioning of laws governing society. Without rules, society can’t exist. Then none of the other things — business, production, curing diseases, feeding our population, etc. — are possible. RR is a specialist in putting together the Tinker Toy parts that comprise a functioning society. Some of you humans are doctors, research scientists, engineers, etc. There’s a small part for each of us to play, and when we pool our talents and efforts toward common goals, millions of us working together can solve big problems and create a civilization capable of supporting hundreds of millions or billions of human beings. Rabbits don’t need this kind of support system. All we need is grass and a place to shit. If there were no humans around, driving cars too fast and running over bunnies, there would be hundreds of billions of bunnies in no time. We bunnies can make more bunnies faster than you can say “boo!” and we don’t need a civilization in order to do it. Without a civilization and government and laws and all that shit, you humans wouldn’t last more than a couple million years. Bunnies forever!!! :D

“Does opposition to David Irons warrant greater advocacy than opposition to abortion?”

Who gives a bunny fuck about David Irons? I didn’t campaign for or against him. I had more important things to do, like fucking cute fluffy female bunnies ten at a time. It takes me only 5 seconds to make 5 more bunnies, and there are 24 hours in each day!!! That’s potentially 86,400 new bunnies a day!!! (Except I gotta sleep, eat, and shit sometime …) I can make new bunnies faster than you can kill them with your speeding cars, so you might as well give it up!!! Bunnies forever!!!

What I don’t understand is why you’re not troubled by American troops arresting innocent Iraqi civilians, beating the shit out of them, raping them, and killing them.

177. Roger Rabbit spews:

@1173

This is exactly the comeback I expected from you, being the shallow retard you are.

Even an idiot can figure out that government has to keep some things secret — military plans, identities of spies, etc.

Rightwingers think government has a right to keep the fact it’s torturing innocent people secret, and that anyone who tells the public what their government is doing is an enemy of the state. This proves that rightwingers are morally deficient. Of course, lots of other things rightwingers think, say, and do also prove they’re morally deficient.

The best answer I can think of to your argument is, FUCK YOU!!! We, the people, own this government — not the other way around. We are the boss, and the president and defense secretary and CIA chief are our employees. We tell them what to do, not vice versa. They have NO FUCKING RIGHT to do something like that behind our back. If we authorize them to do it, that’s one thing. But nobody authorized them to do it. It’s against U.S. law, and it’s against numerous international treaties our government has signed. When they do it on the sneak, that’s the same thing as a Home Depot employee stealing tools or banging the cashier in the john on company time when they’re both supposed to be working. I didn’t pay taxes for Clinton’s salary so he could spend his work time getting blown under the desk by the female help, and I’ve stated previously on this blog that if I had been a U.S. Senator voting on his impeachment, I would have fired him from his job for that. Well, nobody authorized Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and those guys to invade a foreign country, round up its citizens, and torture them. They did it on the sneak, and they oughta get canned for it.

With your logic you should have no problem if the law moves the line for personhood to between the ages of 5 and 65. Then the culling of children and elderly drains on society can become more efficient. You and Hitler…..
