King County election officials yesterday admitted a major error in tallying votes in the governor’s race that could reverse the results and make Christine Gregoire the winner in the hand recount now under way.
The discovery that 561 votes were improperly disqualified super-heated backers of Republican Dino Rossi, who for weeks have worried that King County, a Democratic stronghold, would find a way to give Gregoire the edge.
Republicans are now “absolutely convinced that King County is trying to steal this election,” said Republican Party Chairman Chris Vance.
Analyzing whether vote counting errors tend to be random (usually not), Jim Miller at Sound Politics warns that Republicans should be prepared for bad news. We’ll keep an eye on developments.
