Fraud wins in Washington state

Though evidence has surfaced pointing toward a fradulent result in the Washington state gubernatorial race from last fall, a judge upheld the original election result, ensuring that Democrat Christine Gregoire holds the office.

Chelan County Superior Court Judge John Bridges denied Republican claims that election errors, illegal voters and fraud stole the election from GOP candidate Dino Rossi. He announced his decision in court, saying the state's election process was flawed but that he was not the proper person to remedy those flaws.

"This court is not in the position to fix the deficiencies in the election process," Bridges said. "However, the voters are in a position to demand of their legislative and executive bodies that remedial measures be taken immediately."

Republicans were seeking a new election in November. They have said they plan to appeal Bridges' decision to the state Supreme Court.

Even as state Republicans plan to appeal, Gregoire's challenger, Dino Rossi, shortly after the decision, announced that he would not participate in the appeal. Rossi said, "With today's decision, and because of the political makeup of the Washington State Supreme Court, which makes it almost impossible to overturn this ruling, I am ending the election contest."

So the moonbats win one.

No matter. They've shown their collective hands, and those hands are not clean.
