To the Wire in Washington
Republican Dino Rossi, Washington State's certified governor-elect, is leading Democrat Christine Gregoire by 50 votes in a hand recount with every ballot tallied but those in Seattle's King County.
Democrats in that county had recently (Friday) "discovered" hundreds of new and heretofore uncounted ballots, but Pierce County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Arend decided that they were discovered too late to be added to the tally. The ruling is being appealed to the State supreme court.
This begs a question: How did Kings County elections officials lose these ballots in the first place? Where did they find them? Behind something? Under something? Was Jimmy Hoffa with them? Congressman Hale Boggs?
