OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Democratic state chairman says recount results from King County give Democrat Christine Gregoire an eight-vote victory in Washington's governor's race.

Amazing. Can we get a recount and maybe next time it will be nine?
Here we go. I hate to tell her, but Rossi won two out of three.
This is Bunk. So now were are supposed to accept this 8 vote win from people who will recount until they get the desired result.
What is the next move now or is there one?????
What a happy day for liberals everywhere!
Yep. She'll claim victory and say that we're partisan if we try anything. She's going to ruin that state. Glad I got out when I did. Too bad. It had potential at one time or another. Liberalism is far too infested though.
How convenient... Exactly enough votes to win.
We demand a RECOUNT!!!!
Earlier posts indicated that if a recount changes the results, the government pays the tab for the recount out there.
If true, the Republicans will probably argue the chain of custody of the newly found votes is tainted, since two counts showed Rossi to be the winner, and only the third recount with suspicious ballots swung the result.
This is before the 735 "found" ballots, right?
It's amazingly convenient. Isn't it?
So is the state GOP going to fight or fold?
Uh... the WA supreme court doesn't even rule on whether these ballots should be included until tomorrow...
So if they can't yet be counted how does anybody know this?
You're right. They should. But Rossi, the Republican, has taken two out of three. That alone dictates a winner in most sports games.
If Gregoire gets away with this, and when I encounter dems, in person and online, who say that Bush stole this past election, I'm just going to say to them, "Well, Gregoire stole the WA governorship, so we're even-steven!"
does this include the 561/593/whatever "discovered" ballots, are they in this 8 vote win?
There WILL be another move....I am SURE!!!!!
Wait a sec. I thought that a judge had prohibited counting of the "newly found" ballots. As said, I would demand another recount.
It was never in doubt. If it is close enough for a recount in WA state, then the Dems win period.
As an evil leftist once said, "It doesn't matter who gets the votes, what matters is who counts the votes."
