Crooked politics calls for new election

About two weeks ago there was a picture of Christine Gregoire and her family walking with their backs to the camera. I don’t blame her a bit. If I did what she did I wouldn’t want to show my face either.

Also, I want to make a comment regarding the Jan. 4 letter by Schuyler Thorpe about Republican supporters who could not stand to lose. Hello! Who cried their eyes out when they didn’t win and then demanded a recount? I believe it was the Democrats.

Dino Rossi won fair and square! The Democrats couldn’t take it, did a recount and low and behold came up with 3,539 more votes cast in King County than voters reported to have participated on Nov. 2. Mismatches were reportedly found in Pierce, Clark and Kitsap counties. State GOP chairman Chris Vance said Snohomish County has 1,738 fewer voters than votes in this election.

Now let’s talk about crooked politics. I would love nothing more than to have a new election. Let’s see how many supporters Gregoire has now. According to the surveys there wouldn’t be too many.
