Yes, Mary, Mike Really Did Win

Gracious! Mary Souza is still selling the snake oil, for all gullible readers (both of them), that Councilman Mike Kennedy didn't beat Jim Brannon in the 2009 Coeur d'Alene City Council race. This, despite a court decision that he did. Mary suggests that County Clerk Cliff Hayes has uncovered some profound evidence that Mike actually tied Brannon. Or mebbe, shazam, that he lost to Brannon. Mary: "Mike Kennedy won his re-election in 2009 by only 5 votes.  During the lengthy and sometimes contentious Election Challenge trial that followed, the court decided to invalidate 3 of Mike’s votes.  That brought Mike’s margin of victory down to 2.  Now, it seems, the election was possibly a tie or, in my opinion, an almost certain win for Jim Brannon and probably other candidates in that election as well." Mary goes on to explain her "rationale" for her theory. You can read all about it here.

Question: How many conspiracy theorists does it take to concede an election?
