Remember the mantra of the Democrats in 2000 and 2004 about every vote counting? They kept coming up short so they wanted every single vote to be counted. Well it seems that in light of a close call election seemingly in their favor, they want to discard military votes. In Virginia, several counties and cities mailed out absentee ballots late to our military personnel in Iraq. McCain's people had to file a suit to get the ballots counted which, through no fult of our military, will arrive after tonight's 7PM deadline. A judge has ordered that the ballots be preserved for the hearing.
U.S. District Judge Richard Williams said Tuesday that he will hear the lawsuit on Nov. 10. He ordered election officials to keep the late-arriving ballots until then.Judge Orders Virginia Officials to Keep Late Ballots - FOXNews.com Elections
The McCain campaign praised William's decision.
"This will help to ensure that local election officials do not destroy or dispose of these ballots before the court has had an opportunity to rule on our complaint," spokeswoman Gail Gitcho said in a written statement.
Who has a better right to be heard in this election than our military men and women in Iraq? Shame on those at fault for this screw-up! And good for McCain and Judge Williams for giving them a chance to be heard.
