"Recall Reed" files Appeal Brief in the Supreme Court

Chris Vance and the GOP leadership did little more then carry out a $2.5 million PR campaign and when Judge Bridges ruled against the $2.5 million high-power GOP lawyer team, Vance FOLDED.

The Recall effort was ridiculed, written off, and buried. The fight has not ended; it has just begun. Democrats, Republicans, Liberals, Conservatives -- ALL have had it with the leadership of both parties.

Call it what you wish but people are fed up, and the 420,000 signatures on the nonewgastax in 32 days prove it.

Political realities are shifting very fast.

"If the court decides to vacate the office, and a new election occurs, I will do everything in my power to ensure that the election is fairly administered under Washington State law and election rules. However, you should know that Washington State law does not provide me with the authority to call a special election or the authority to set aside election results certified by our county canvassing boards."

Well, well Judge Chris Wickham Wicked is being stood up to.No, not by KVI and (yet), although The Seattle Times Editorial Board urges 'em too.But by Martin Ringhofer, Linda Jordan and the rest of the Reed Recall team. HERE in PDF format is the brief laying out the arguments for appealing Judge Wickham's wicked ruling. Not the least of which being Judge Wickham's suppression of relevant evidence (unlike Judge John Bridges in Wenatchee) and Secretary Reed's problems in making a good election happen.The PDF is well worth a read if you're as interested in election reform as I am. I'm happy to see somebody keep genuine heat on this issue... besides King County Councilor Reagan Dunn and his staff, that is!FYI: Martin Ringhofer is also the same gentleman who has been trying to stop dead people from voting!
