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.
No need to actually vote, folks: the Election result has already been written by the AP: At this hour, President Bush has won re-election as president by a 47 percent to 43 percent margin in the popular vote nationwide. Ralph Nader has 1 percent of the vote nationwide. That's with 51 percent of the precincts reporting.
(they say it's a test article, but who ever heard of an election results article being pre-written?)
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.
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.
George W. Bush is elected President of the United States.
Affirmed by no less than Al Gore himself. The electoral votes have been tallied and certified. It. Is. Over.
FLASH: Gore Concedes.
Ok, I guess *now* it's over. Bye, Alec...
Bush apparently wins...
and the New York Times is apparently speechless. 54k

Supreme Court II: Election Boogaloo.
Programs, getcher programs here! Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, you can get your grubby hands on the Bush
briefs right now. Fascinating reading. PDF files, of course.
The Greenwood Position.
Partisan perhaps, but will Peggy Noonan's latest OpEd in the WSJ be a rallying cry for frustrated conservatives? She offers compelling arguments and solid suggestions for proactive redress. Talk amongst yourselves.
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?
"If Dubya steals the White House, American democracy will be a joke."
A vehemently liberal polemic from the UK, which I don't necessarily agree with, but still: "President Dubya will be barren of legitimacy at home and devoid of moral authority abroad. The Saddam Husseins of the planet, every petty, vicious dictator around the world, will scoff in the face of America."
are looking at us and giggling about our democratic process. It's rather enlightening to see what they think, provided the attitude the US newsmedia takes when other countries' elections appear "fixed", "inefficient," or "ineffective."
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.
