Update: The reports were especially disturbing in Ohio, the critical battleground state that clinched Bushs victory in the electoral college. Officials there purged tens of thousands of eligible voters from the rolls, neglected to process registration cards generated by Democratic voter drives, shortchanged Democratic precincts when they allocated voting machines and illegally derailed a recount that could have given Kerry the presidency. And

After carefully examining the evidence, Ive become convinced that the presidents party mounted a massive, coordinated campaign to subvert the will of the people in 2004. And

A review of the available data reveals that in Ohio alone, at least 357,000 voters, the overwhelming majority of them Democratic, were prevented from casting ballots or did not have their votes counted in 2004 more than enough to shift the results of an election decided by 118,601 votes. And

Indeed, the extent of the GOPs effort to rig the vote shocked even the most experienced observers of American elections. Ohio was as dirty an election as America has ever seen, Lou Harris, the father of modern political polling, told me. You look at the turnout and votes in individual precincts, compared to the historic patterns in those counties, and you can tell where the discrepancies are. They stand out like a sore thumb.
