You think Ohio and Florida had Electoral Problems

They got nothing on the state of Washington where "Governor" Christine Gregoire may have her November victory declared invalid. Her former challenger, GOP nominee, Dino Rossi, scored an important legal victory on Monday, as the judge will allow Rossi to use a type of statistical analysis to try to prove illegal votes swayed the race. Republicans in Washington claim they have identified more than 1,000 illegal votes, many cast in the names of dead people and convicted felons. The trial to determine whether the November results should be nullified is set for May 23. At this rate, Washington should have a clear-cut winner within a year of the election. Yikes.
