The Shark smells blood

Stefan Sharkansky has completed a massive audit of the vote in King County and uncovered over 3700 unexplained "votes" (ballots that exceed the number of persons who voted in the precincts.)
I've finished the massive project of trying to reconcile the King County voter list to the vote count as accurately as humanly possible. My conclusion: their numbers are off by at least 3,748 votes, or roughly 30 times former Attorney General Gregoire's alleged "victory" margin.

The previously reported discrepancy of 2,150 (348 unverified provisionals + 1,800 unexplained more ballots than voters) represents only the net difference between ballots and voters. While many precincts counted more ballots than voters, a lot of precincts counted more voters than ballots. When you add up all the voterless ballots and all the ballotless voters, the true number of improperly counted votes reaches at least 3,700 and is presumably somewhat higher.
Since Christine Gregoire "won" by 129 votes, the correct course of action should be obvious. If Gregoire cared one whit for the voters, she would support a revote, but she doesn't care. She wants to be Governor so badly she's willing to accept fraud to get into office.

At a minimum, the voters should be asking themselves why an unpaid, volunteer citizen is having to do the work to uncover voter fraud when this should be done by the government.

The Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.

And the press? The "defenders of democracy? Silent!
