Most Washingtonians by now probably have moved past the governor's race. It's February, spring is around the corner. Gregoire has settled in as governor. But for Republicans, especially Rossi, the legal case is as alive as can be.
Computer wonks working for Team Rossi have been busy scouring lists of felons who voted, lists of dead people who voted and even some people who like voting so much they did it twice.
