New election – same result

November 11th, 2014 by Ken

When the first votes were counted on election night, Initiative 1351 was failing by about 2 percentage points.

This measure, bought and paid for by the Washington Education Association, would cost taxpayers about $2,500,000,000 each year.  That’s $2.5 billion.

Voters across the state were saying no to this self-serving union measure.

But, everyone knew that all of the votes hadn’t been counted – particularly in King County.  Everyone knew that King County would keep counting ballots until it reached the results it wanted – – passage of the measure.    After all, we had experiences with vote counting in Seattle, which kept counting until Christine Gregorie had enough votes to defeat Dino Rossi for governor.

And, sure enough, King County’s votes are still being counted, but I-1351 has pulled ahead by half a percentage point.

Everyone knew on election night that King County would keep counting ballots until it achieved the goal it wanted.

No one trusts the election process in Washington state because of King County and its ability to keep finding new ballots to count.

Different election – – same results.
