[Media Source*] (Via GOP Bloggers) It looks like the Donks might be getting away with cheating again--despite the evidence that is mounting against them involving voter fraud! GOP Bloggers gives the scoop:
Sound Politics is reporting on a rather bizarre ruling in the court case about the voter fraud - it seems that the GOP is to be required to prove the fraudulent votes went for Gregoire (how do you question a dead voter?) and, also, the judge has ruled that even if the GOP meets this standard of proof, he wont order a re-vote. According to Sound Politics, the Washington State GOP is reading the ruling, but right now is unsure how it all stacks up.
This will be a sad day for democracy if this scandal goes unpunished. If I didn't live three thousand miles away, I would say it's time for an Orange Revolution in WA!
Sound Politics Reports:
The good news for Democrats was Bridges' ruling in Chelan County Superior Court that Republicans must show any illegal votes were cast in favor of Gregoire, and not Republican candidate Dino Rossi. There would have to be enough illegal Gregoire votes to erase her 129-vote victory margin.
With secret ballots, it is impossible to prove how anybody voted. The next best thing to do is put the identified illegal voters under oath, but it's not like they can ask the dead people who they voted for, and the felons' answers can't exactly be trusted. If ballot stuffing explained the thousands of magical mystery ballots, how will those be attributed? And then there's the matter of remedy:
the judge said if Republicans did prove their case, he would not order a new election for governor as they want him to do.
It defies common sense that the judge would order the contest to proceed under an impossible standard and without a viable remedy. I suspect there's a better explanation than what was reported.
