The Costly, Foolish Third Count

The keep-recounting-until-I-win strategy of Washington State gubernatorial loser Christine Gregoire may be backfiring in two ways: one, Republican Dino Rossi is so far gaining votes in the hand count and two, costs are skyrocketing.

If Gregoire doesn't get the desired result this time, her party will be on the hook for the full cost of the unprecedented statewide hand recount. It was reported Friday that it could run as high as $1.3 to $1.5 million to fund this circus.

Yet again it boils down to what these guys are able to pull in Seattle's King County. And as usual they will be the last to report results. Time for an Orange Revolution, Kiev-style.
