The editorial reviews on Talmadge Heflin's House challenge to overturn his electoral loss to Hubert Vo are coming in, and it's as you'd expect.
The Statesman says "Heflin is asking his House colleagues to give him the seat he didn't win anyway".
The Chron says Heflin will "clearly do anything to retain possession of the District 149 seat he's held for two decades, even if it includes thwarting the will of the district's voters". Note how they also pick up on the implicit questioning of Republican County Clerk Bev Kaufman's competence.
Even Dan Patrick's boyos are telling Heflin to pack it in.
Andrew D has some related stuff. The official recount, which does not affect the challenge, begins today. There are two other challenges giong on in the House as well - I'll have more on this later. I'll post more editorials as I find them.Posted by Charles Kuffner on November 30, 2004 to Election 2004 | TrackBack
