GOP fails in attempt to stop counting ballots in Washington

In a very close election, seperated by only 261 votes, the GOP filed to stop hand counting. The argument was related to the issues of recounting electronic votes versus recounting punch cards or other forms. Fortunately the GOP lost in court but with all of the voting irregularities recently, the Democrats need to seize this issue and make it a hot topic in 2006 or 2008. As it stands today there are just too many opportunities for abuse with our elections. It is incredible to think that we have no legitimacy in offering advice or criticism with corrupt elections such as we are probably witnessing in the Ukraine.
