Meanwhile, in the Washington State House of Representatives:
The discovery is likely to bolster a key Republican claim: that there were so many irregularities in the election that the true winner can't be determined. Republicans have cited many errors by election workers and have focused on King County, where batches of uncounted and improperly rejected ballots had been discovered earlier.
Secretary of State Sam Reed, the state's chief election official, was surprised by news of the most-recently found ballots.
"Oh my gosh," he said.
Reed said the news confirmed his belief that problems in the King County elections division are "very deep and very significant."
Democrats removed identification requirements at the polls, something that Gov. Christine Gregoire and Secretary of State Sam Reed supported and the original Senate bill required, either in the form of photo ID or a voter registration card.Which raises the question: why should it be easier to vote than to buy cold medicine?
