In sworn affidavit, programmer says he developed vote-rigging prototype for Florida congressman; Congressman’s office silent
- Will this go the way of
the Wayne Madsen report
? Perhaps this is, as some have noted, just another Rovian Hit
. At this point in time, I keep my tinfoil hat ready. Even if it were true, I doubt the Republican-majority-ed House and Senate are can hardly be expected to investigate themselves. For now, I just keep laughing at HERCUBUSH (Quicktime) (Real)
and trying to convince myself that we are all in Bush now
Florida is the New Florida
Although many discussions of voting anomalies focused on Ohio, a statistical analysis
of Florida voting patterns
performed by sociologists at University of California, Berkeley
suggests that electronic touch screen voting
in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade may have credited George Bush with up to 260,000 extra votes in Florida. The discrepancy is not enough to change who won Florida, but it could have narrowed Bush's lead to 90,000 votes instead of 350,000, highlighting the need for better auditing of elections with electronic voting.

The spokesman said its 'Important to reach out to every single supporter'
I guess I shouldn't be suprised, and I guess it's not illegal, but I'll try to be bi-partisan here and say this just seems wrong!!
Turnabout hyperbole fair play?
Boy, it's a good thing there weren't a lot of people going around saying terrorists would want John Kerry to win the election or anything silly like that.
Attention all Mefites: there is no need for discussion on the 2004 election anymore, as the results have already been revealed. George W. Bush will be re-elected in 2004 in a landslide, says God
... According to Pat Robertson... according to Fox News. Well. That's it then.
The Bush/Cheney campaign lets you look up campaign donors on their web page
. With its help, we can now answer the burning question "Forget about me...who does the incredibly popular, beloved-by-millions television personality Wink Martindale
Now we know.
Why Are Left-Wing Brits Like Hitchens, Amis And Rushdie Supporting President Bush?
In this terrific article, The New Statesman's John Lloyd
dares to pose the question. To which I would add my own: so far as the campaign against terrorism is concerned, isn't the standard Right/Left dichotomy becoming an increasingly American thang?
[Please look inside Ty Webb's "Axis of Evil" post for an interesting discussion on the Hitchens/Bush (dis)connection
Bush Winning Gore Backers' High Praises
I never thought I would see this in the New York Times; praise for President Bush. "Many Democrats who once dismissed Mr. Bush as too naïve and too dependent on advisers to steer the United States through an international crisis are now praising his and his advisers' performance. Some are even privately expressing satisfaction that Mr. Gore, who tried to make his foreign affairs expertise an issue in the campaign, did not win." I cannot agree more!
Hanging a dead chad . . .
The Miami Herald has completed the recount of undervotes from all 67 counties in Florida. The findings? The Herald says it best: . . . under almost all scenarios, Bush still would have won. Indeed, in one of the great ironies of the bitter 2000 election, Bush's lead would have vanished only if the recount had been conducted under severely restrictive standards advocated by some Republicans.
"until every vote is coutned"
: A review of 10,600 previously uncounted ballots in Miami-Dade County showed George W. Bush gaining six more votes than Al Gore.
Even when it looks like it's over, it's not.
Thanks to the electoral college system, we still won't know for sure until next week. The funny thing about this group
who's trying to get Bush electors to switch their votes is that they don't even like or support Gore. They're just against the electoral system.
last speeches of the 2000 campaign are great signposts to how the next administration will run.
FLASH: Gore Concedes.
Ok, I guess *now* it's over. Bye, Alec...
Choose your own election.
Worth reading, just for a bit of 80s nostalgia.
Bush attempts to move on
and creates a Web site to help facilitate the process. My, he does have bal^H^H^Hguts doesn't he? I think at this point Gore doesn't expect to win and is continuing with his pursuits to make sure the laws get changed for the next election. What do you think?
regarding a lawsuit filed against Bush/Cheney regarding Texas' electoral votes. Looks like Cheney violated the 12th amendment of the Constitution...see for yourself.
The end... finally.
Today at five pm. Judge Lewis upholds the statutory deadline for election returns to be certified, despite media specualtion that he was initially inclined to extend it.
The Bush campaign is seeking contributions to fund the Florida recount
and here I am thinking that they were fighting
the recount. I'm sorry to add a link to the political chaos but the Bush campaign just baffles me to no end. Could some objective non-partisan please stand up for the people's constitutional right to franchisement?
It's not over yet folks!
Democratic candidate Al Gore has called GOP presidential candidate George W. Bush for the second time tonight, retracting his earlier call congratulating Bush on his victory. Gore is expected to speak to his supporters in Nashville soon.
Bush wins Guam, err won
This is legal! Guam is 15 hours ahead of the East Coast. They were voting while you were sleeping last night.
NYTimes.com reports (or does it?) Bush winning KY and IN
I think this is some kind of mistake, rather than an off-sides. Explanations?
The New York Times endorses Al Gore
The Philadelphia Inquirer and Denver Post also endorsed Gore, while rival George W. Bush picked up endorsements from Chicago’s two daily newspapers and Denver’s Rocky Mountain News.
Maybe Dubya needs a pinch-hitter
to take his place opposite Gore at the debates planned by the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Well here's why Ralph is running.
Do the other guys have anything this succinct and clear-cut? I can't find on the 'Net any page, nor have I heard in any of their speeches, where Bush or Gore come straight out and state exactly why they're running.
Bush and Gore won their respective Iowa primaries.
Excuse while I let out an enormous yawn. I was talking about Bill Bradley to a friend
the other day, and he thought I was a crackpot. So I dug up the old Select Smart URL
, and made him fill out the form. Given his stance on issues, Bill Bradley came up as his first choice too. He went nuts, and said instead of punch cards with names in the voting booth, we should answer questions like the Select Smart site
, and submit a vote for the candidate that most matches our stances on issues. Instead of pointless political advertising, candidates' positions on real issues would determine who would vote for them. Wouldn't that be great?
