Supremes say: "Count every valid vote."

The Washington State Supreme Court showed some uncommon sense in as it overruled Pierce County Superior Court and ordered King County to count the 700-odd mistakenly-invalidated ballots that were found during the recount process.

Republicans argued that a recount should be a mere retabulation, and said seven weeks after the election was too late for counties to go back and correct errors. But the court unanimously said state law specifically allows county canvassing boards to correct mistakes during a recount.

This will almost certainly put Chris Gregiore over the top.  Film of Chris Vance's head exploding at 11.
