Florida With Rain

Harumph.

During the two recounts, Mr. Logan's office discovered 566 "erroneously rejected" absentee ballots, plus another 150 uncounted ones that turned up in a warehouse. Evidence surfaced that dead people had "exercised their right to vote"; documentation was presented that 900 felons in King County alone had illegally voted and that military ballots were sent out too late to be counted. A total of 700 provisional ballots had been fed into voting machines before officials had determined their validity. In the four previous November elections, King County workers had never mishandled more than nine provisional ballots in a single election.
Sounds to me like a few more felons need to be rounded up.

I don't live anywhere near Washington State but a hundred bucks sez that in 2000 there was a lot of haughty talk up there about Florida's redneck backwards process.
