22. That was our 2002 Georgia Election...

...the first major test run for the 2004 sElection. The Re-thugs took out our very popular, Senator Max Cleland, the state the legislature, first time in 130 years, I think, and the Governor's office from Democrat Roy Barnes, plus a lot more. Most of speculation as to what happened or why in this New York Times article is completely wrong, but the facts of who was selected is accurate. But I can tell you as a long time resident of this state, that the voter in Georgia don't just flip parties over night and this thing about Democrats turning against Barnes over the stupid flag issue is total BS!

The GEORGIA 2002 Election was the first BIG test as to how to steal an election with these E-voting machines. PERIOD!
