Voter Fraud Results In Two Convictions

Some may remember that the Democrats stole a governors election last election. After two recounts and lots of irregularities, including "found" boxes of uncounted ballots, the Democrat Christie Gregoire, who lost the first two recounts, came from behind to win by 129 votes. At least some voter fraud has been detected (duh - some counties had more votes than voters), and two people have plead guilty.
Doris McFarland, 83, and Robert Holmgren, 59, each admitted in King County
District Court that they forged the signatures of and cast ballots for their
recently deceased spouses.

Each will have to pay $490 in fines and court fees but they won't spend any time in jail. Multiple voting is a gross misdemeanor [I agree that it is unseemly, but gross?] that can carry up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine.

"My wife died just before this election," Holmgren told Judge Eileen Kato. "My judgment was clouded by the grief. I'm really sorry for what I did." McFarland's lawyer, John Price, told the judge that she simply didn't know what to do with the extra absentee ballot [Uh, throw it away!] after her husband of 63 years, Earl, passed away last October.
No mention is mentioned in the article of who received their "extra" votes. Applying the logical corollary to my Criminal Politician Theorem, I would conclude that they voted Democratic twice.

"At the same time, today's disposition recognizes that these people made a very human mistake during a time of grieving. ... Their motivation in these cases was not to throw an election, but to remember a loved one [by throwing an election]," Maleng said.
There was also news today in a lawsuit about the election results. See here. To hear one opinion of this election, consider:
In the state's largest county, King County, 3,539 more votes were cast than the number of voters who signed in to vote. In Clark County, there is a 1,005 vote-to-voter discrepancy.

They are still waiting in North Carolina, too.

What a shock. Democrats in North Carolina counting illegal ballots and declaring themselves the winner. I never heard of such a thing.
