News Media Downplays Eastside Ballot Mess

The Potemkin Village, a.k.a., King County Elections, failed to mail out thousands of Eastside ballots on time, but most people in King County don't know about it, because the Mainstream News Media has downplayed it as if were nothing important that many voters may have been disenfranchised from the November 8th election.  Just because the ballots were mailed out eventually, presumably, does not mean that disenfranchisement did not take place, because many people may have left town for business or pleasure after they were suppose to receive them and before their ballots eventually arrived, and may not be planning to return home until after the election.  This could make a difference in a close election.

Meanwhile, the King County Council is starting to ask questions about this incident, and have requested the appearance of the incumbent director to the next council meeting, right before Election Day.  Don't bet on the news media covering this since they have been in the pocket of Ms. Huff ever since she announced her re-election candidacy.

Previous posts in Commoner are about internet smears, teenagers for Mark for elections director, initial reports about elections department foul-ups regarding Eastside ballots for this election, ideas for a new, activist elections department, and other interesting essays, such as surmising why the Seattle Times isn't writing about this election.
