“Gregoire certified as next governor,” by Chriss McGann, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/206033_governor31.html, 31 December 2004.
Why bother winning, when you can just cheat?
OLYMPIA — Democrat Christine Gregoire was declared Washington’s next governor yesterday, but Republican Dino Rossi refused to quit the race and cited thousands of “mystery voters” in King County as ample ammunition for continuing the fight.
The state Republican Party obtained a list of the people who voted in King County as part of a larger request for information designed to show systemic problems with the election.
The data showed that 895,660 people voted in the state’s largest county. That’s a problem, Republicans said, because King County tallied 899,199 votes — 3,539 more votes than there were voters.
They stole the 1960 Presidential election, tried to steal the 2000 Presidential election, and now are stealing the 2004 Washington Gubernatorial election. God bless the Democratic Party.
