I got a call this morning from Jonathan with the Kiplinger Letter in the other Washington (D.C.). He wanted to know if the 2004 election ended with Gov. Chris Gregoire winning by 133 votes, as we’ve reported, or 129, as he’d seen elsewhere.
In a quest for the answer, Joe visited the Secretary of State’s Web site.
And? Betcha didn’t know that Rossi won by 261 votes.
Or did Gregoire win by 129?
Neither. She won by 133 votes.
And don’t worry: Joe pointed it out to Sam Reed’s office (which means you better click fast because those links won’t work soon).
Update: No need to click quickly. Reed’s office tells us that the reason the results are still there is that they’re the actual, certified election results. And they won’t be taken down. So click away. Bookmark it, even!
