Fenty petition on no party voters denied

By Washington Post editors

The D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics has denied a request by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty Wednesday, who petitioned the panel to allow nonaffiliated voters to register as Democrats during new election laws that allow for same-day registration.

On Aug. 12, the board adopted emergency regulations to clarify the new laws that went into effect in February. Voters registered as "no party" cannot declare a party at the last minute to vote in the Sept. 14 primary, according to the regulations.

Hat up, and head out queen Fenty.

Thank goodness that rationality prevailed.

Now the real question: why did the Fenty administration advocate for this against the wishes of their own political party, and against the hypocrisy of the veto taken last week against the "pay to vote" bill?

If the DC Board of Elections are doing their job by not going for that nonsense request from the Fenty camp.

Talk about desperate measures. He is really against the ropes and deeply in denial.

After he loses the Primary in September, you will see the real Fenty. He is going to drain the DC Governments bank account.
