More GOP hypocrisy in Washington state.

As Democrat Christine Gregoire is set to be sworn in as Washington's governor on Wednesday, Republican Dino Rossi has gone to court asking that the results of the November gubernatorial election be tossed out and a new election held. According to Rossi, errors, negligence, and misconduct have made it impossible to determine who the real winner of the election was. Gregoire won the election by 129 votes after a hand recount of all the state's ballots. Rossi had won an earlier machine recount by 42 votes.

We'll just note that Rossi and the Washington Republican party weren't terribly concerned about 'errors, negligence, and misconduct' in the election when it looked like Gregoire had lost.
