First, let's reemphasize the good news from last week, as reported by David Dayen at Calitics: "47,153 "double bubble" votes were counted in Los Angeles County. The expectation on the day of the election was that none of these ballots from decline to state voters would be counted, but the pressure put on by the Courage Campaign and other groups led to this result."

Second, Dayen's post that included the above news has made its rounds through the national blogasphere, having the Wall Street Journal and Wonkette pick up on it. While Hillary Clinton still won California, the official count, that some media is still reporting, of California delegates is "so very, very wrong, and in fact are about 800,000 votes off from the official tally." The Democratic party confirms that the count is 203-167.
