OC Special Election: Janet's Now the Official Winner, But Still Not the Supervisor

Today, the OC Registrar of Voters has now posted the final numbers for the OC Special Election for County Supervisor. Here they are for the top four vote-getters:

JANET NGUYEN 10919 24.1%
TRUNG NGUYEN 10912 24.1%
TOM UMBERG 9725 21.4%

However, the other four Supervisors declined to seat Janet Nguyen today. So what happened? Darth Schroeder struck. Want to find out more? Follow me down below...

Remember when GOP Kingmaker and omnipotent "OC Godfather" Mike Schroeder called Janet Nguyen a "the next Al Gore", and a "sore loser"? Well, guess who's acting like the "sore loser" now? Schroeder now wants to overturn the election results!!

So now, it looks like the special election is heading into court. However, this won't be the first time for Schroeder. He tried to overturn Loretta Sanchez's defeat of incumbent Republican wingnut Congressman "B-1" Bob Dornan in 1996. However, I don't know if he really wants to pull the "voter fraud" card again. After all, all the alleged voter fraud committed during this special election all seems to be the work of Trung Nguyen and his creepy crony buddies. Yep, the voter fraud argument might not help Schroeder's client this time around.

But still, stay tuned as the special election melodrama moves into a court of law...

UPDATE: Darth Schroeder has officially filed a lawsuit in Superior Court. Go ahead and see the lawsuit for yourself. I guess we'll see what the courts have to say about this never-ending special election.
