Back to Washington

Well, the trial isn't in session today, so it's as good a time as any for an update.

When I previously posted here and elsewhere about the Washington gubernatorial race, I was extremely cautious. I warned against premature claims of fraud, and was determined to give the election every benefit of the doubt.

Things have changed. Those who oppose the legitimacy of the election have met the standard of proof. Revelations of dead people voting, improperly tallied provisional ballots, and out-of-whack ballot/voter numbers have convinced me that the election results are not legitimate. These things happen in every election, of course, but with the whisker-close margin of victory, they are enough to throw the outcome into doubt. The Chelan County judge who will hear the contest brought by Rossi should invalidate the results and order a special election.

Actually, I vehemently oppose elections whose results are tainted by fraud or incompetence regardless of the victor.
