NOT QUITE WHAT CHESTERTON MEANT:

Wash. GOP Releases List in Voter Challenge (RACHEL LA CORTE, 3/03/05, Associated Press)

Republicans have released 1,135 names of alleged felons who they say illegally cast ballots in the governor's race that Democrat Christine Gregoire won by 129 votes.

The list turned over to Democratic Party lawyers on Thursday contained the names and addresses of the alleged felons, along with 45 people who Republicans say died before the Nov. 2 election but who were listed as having voted.

"It's one more significant piece of evidence that this past election was not only deeply flawed but that we don't know who won," said Mary Lane, a spokeswoman for Republican opponent Dino Rossi, who is challenging the results in court. "Christine Gregoire is not the legitimately elected governor."


And here we thought it was coinservatives who believed in the democracy of the dead.

Rossi is moving into 'sore loser' territory. Although it is interesting to see the depth of coverage the MSM is giving this, coverage so similar to the Florida Follies of 2000. NOT!

Rossi and the GOP have been patiently using the courts has provided by law, and this announcement was just another step in that proces. The only people around here talking about "sore losers" are Dems who know their Governor Pro Tem will be out of office well before the end of summer.
