Election Controversies Update

Yes, the court disputes in Kentucky and Washington state continue. In Kentucky, where as you may recall, the Senate voted to sit a Republican, despite her failure to meet residency requirements, the Kentucky Supreme Court will have the final word. Currently Dana Seum Stephenson (the Republican) is the Senator, but is prohibited from taking any official actions. The Democrat Virginia Woodward is awaiting word from the Supreme Court.

And in Washington, the drive to get Gov. Gregoire out of office continues. However, the most recent court rulings make it seem as if a revote will not be in the offing. But no immediate resolution to this appears is in the offing either.
