Republican wins Washington state governor race, but...

Leave it to a Democrat to be unsatisfied with a losing election result, and request yet another recount. For those who haven't followed, here's the condensed version.

Election Day ended for most folks on Wednesday, Nov. 3. Washington state had a gubernatorial race that was tight. The final tally was that the GOP won by about 160 votes or so, out of 2.8 million votes cast. All absentee ballots and provisional ballots (the ones ruled eligible to be counted) were tallied, and the GOP won by about 260 votes. By law, the state had a machine recount. The GOP won again, though this a mere 42 votes!

Wow...only 42 votes! Anyway, the Dem is now requesting a hand recount. To be fair, I guess I can see why. When you're that close, you want to make sure it's correct.

Awww...who am I kidding? This is a liberal who lost, therefore she's attempting to engineer a theft of a close election! You watch...she'll be challenging the hell out of the GOP votes, to get them rejected!
