Pollet’s Lawsuit Dismissed by Judge

posted by on June 25 at 16:11 PM

Gerry Pollet—the 46th District candidate whose supporters sued to have his opponent, Scott White, removed from the August primary election ballot after White attempted to withdraw from the race, then changed his mind—lost his challenge in King County Superior Court this morning. Pollet wanted to prove that King County Elections officials had not told the truth when they said White’s faxed withdrawal came in five minutes late (and wasn’t received until the next morning), and that they reinstated him for other reasons. That claim was rejected in Superior Court by Judge John P. Erlick.

nice to know Scott White tried to deliver a withdrawal form on time, blew it, and now is trying to benefit from his incompetence.

Kudos to the elections department -- they have a deadline of 4:30 p.m., but their fax machine timer is off by hours and they receive forms by fax?

What a well run office.

Unless that was a lie.

Guess Mr. White is thankful the county where he works is incompetent, too.

And the judge noted that the county didn't have any explanation as to where the form went for few hours until it was "seen" the next day -- or why the elections office actually posted White as having withdrawn on time-- more "errors" in county government.

Where White works. Where he decided to withraw. Where he used county office and county fax machine to withdraw. Oh yes that'd be yet another "error" in county government as that's illegal use of govt. resources to campaign.

Kudos to county government! Let's promote the people who run it, to higher office!

"Elect me, I couldn't manage to file my own withdrawal form on time!"
