More votes than voters... imagine that.
Minutes after signing certificates to name Gregoire as governor-elect, Secretary of State Sam Reed was asked if he was confident she would be sworn in as scheduled Jan. 12.
"You know," he said, "I don't have enough information at this time to be able to make an educated guess because I do not know what will be brought forward in terms of contesting the election."
As has been the case since Election Day, much of the attention is focused on King County. Republicans are asking questions about why the county's list of registered voters who cast valid ballots in the election shows about 3,500 fewer people than the total number of votes certified in the race.[Emphasis, Ed.]
A few days ago I mentioned Hugh Hewitt's new book Blog, I'd like to take this opportunity to recommend his last book If It's Not Close, They Can't Cheat: Crushing the Democrats in Every Election and Why Your Life Depends on It. It's an excellent read and very informative when you consider situations like the one in Washington.
