The Seattle P-I reports that the Democrats have sent the GOP a list of 428 felons who cast illegal votes in the November election, mainly from pro-Rossi parts of the state.
Eventually, state Democratic Party Chairman Paul Berendt said, his side expects to meet or beat the total of 946 felon voters the GOP has claimed in its legal challenge to the election.
What…? In a state where meth labs are popping up faster than Starbucks, you didn’t expect to find a few felons outside of Seattle city limits?
Hopeless Senate hopeful and GOPolitburo Chair Chris Vance tried to put the best spin on it:
“The more the better,” Vance said. “They’re just proving our central point, which is that this election was so messed up, there’s no way to tell who won.”
Yeah… and that would be a great central point Chris, if the standard for setting aside the election was uncertainty. But the statute and case law are pretty damn clear that Rossi has to actually prove that Gregoire lost… and that’s why the GOP pinned their hopes on the court accepting a proportional analysis.
Yup, for the past couple of weeks its been proportional analysis this and proportional analysis that… and now that somebody’s bothered to look at the rest of the state for illegal votes, all of a sudden Vance is back to the “it’s a total mess” bullshit. Hoo-boy… sure sounds like an admission of defeat to me.
And for those of you who don’t trust the P-I, the Seattle Times says the Democrats found 432 felons in 31 counties, including:
65 in Spokane, 55 in Yakima and 35 in Clark. In King County, Democrats say, they found 31 felons from Rossi strongholds.
Now how’d the
BIAW Rossi camp miss those 31 felons in King County? They weren’t cherry picking, were they? Naaww… that would be dishonest.
