Republicans Will Accept Felons' Votes....

As long as they're Republican votes!

Democrats said yesterday that they've found 432 felons who appear to have voted illegally in November but were ignored by Republicans in their legal challenge to the governor's election.

Republicans left those felons out of their case, Democrats say, because the illegal votes came from parts of the state that supported Republican Dino Rossi in his race against Christine Gregoire, boosting the chances that they were in Rossi's favor.

In a court filing yesterday, Democrats also outlined other alleged illegal votes and errors by election officials that they say favored Rossi in the election and more than make up for any similar charges by Republicans.

"They essentially cherry-picked through Democratic portions of the state to come up with their list," state Democratic Party Chairman Paul Berendt said yesterday.
