Gregoire Victory Upheld

A judge in Washington earlier today declined to order a new election in the disputed governor’s race. Michelle Malkin has full coverage. Apparently the main thrust of the judges’s ruling was that, while there was evidence of 1,678 illegal votes cast–which I think is around ten times Gregoire’s margin of victory–there was no evidence as to who got the illegal votes, so the Republicans failed in their burden of proof.
Of course, if that’s the standard, election challenges are futile, since I can’t see how there would ever be a record of which candidate a particular voter (real or nonexistent) voted for.
