Dead voted in governor's race (PHUONG CAT LE AND MICHELLE NICOLOSI, January 7, 2005, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER)

At least eight people who died well before the November general election were credited with voting in King County, raising new questions about the integrity of the vote total in the narrow governor's race, a Seattle Post-Intelligencer review has found.

The evidence of votes from dead people is the latest example of flaws in an election already rocked by misplaced votes and allegations that there were thousands more votes counted than actual voters.

A "Post-Intelligencer review" my eyeball--it's been conservative bloggers and talk radio that have uncovered and publicized this stuff. The Seattle media, having gotten the result they wanted, certainly wouldn't have strained themselves over this story.

Hey, if the dead person voted for Scoop Jackson, they were probably smart enough not to vote for Gregoire...

This explains Gregoire's unveiled slogan during the last week before the vote: "Vote Gregoire - Braaaaains..."

Those were "Deadocrat" voters.

The Left likes to pat themselves on the back for their "tolerance". But one of the things they tolerate are the bending and breaking of rules when they can benefit. Unlike normal corruption, you don't have anyone actually in a position to be caught doing anything grossly wrong. And it's based on the assumption that you are in complete control of the rule enforcement, and that your opponents are sticklers for the rules, and so can't and won't do the same.

It's a form of corruption that only gets exposed in cases like this. But the question still remains— how many tax levies, and close local races were wrongly dtermined. Did Maria Cantwell really beat "Sierra" Slade Gorton by about 2000 votes in '002?

You'll note that the only voter willing to identify for whom he fraudulently cast his dead wife's ballot voted for the Republican :)

That's Cantwell in 2000. (Has it really been that long?)
