Commoner doesn't know exactly how many votes Greene led by in King on election night, but if for the sake of argument it was only 51% - 49%, then in order for Lord to gain the necessary 1600-or-so votes on Greene, he would have had to win 60% or more of the absentee ballots, despite an overall election that was alledgedly decided by 53% to 47%. In every turn, the election was only decided by at most 8 points, where the largest spread was the alledged King County count of 54% to 46% for Lord. The Pierce County count was the exact pecentage of the alledged overall Primary count, 53% to 47%. The Thurston County count was closest, 51% to 49% for Lord. Nothing anywhere indicates that Lord got 60% - 65% of the vote count on any significant metric, but that's effectively what King County said he managed after the polls closed. We think the number of aggregate all-candidate votes counted on election night in King County were a little less than half of the total vote overall, but more than 45%. Somewhere between 45 and 50 per cent of the vote.
Whether you care for any of these candidates or not, you deserve to know if election officials are counting the vote correctly, or trying to dig out fraud. The integrity of our entire governmental system depends on it. Please, contact a trusted journalist and ask him or her to look into these election irregularities and probable fraud. but to especially take note of the electronic audit log problem. This election cannot be re-counted no matter what, because the ballots were destroyed years ago. These journalists will have to use Freedom of Information requests to get to the bottom of this, because there is little doubt that the U.S. Government, the State of Washington, and King County all know something about this election that has not heretofore been disclosed.
One independent journalist, Tom Flocco, started the ball rolling, generally. Please, see his article about the King County Primary of Sept. 14, 2004. The link: Independent Journalist Tom Flocco's Report on the Election of Sept. 14, 2004 in King County The more journalists on this story, the better.

Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2013 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it. Please, ask these journalists to use "Freedom of Information" requests to get to the bottom of this case. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
