39. Thanks Larisa (and important indeed!)
Edited on Thu Jan-10-08 10:32 PM by BradBlog
Thanks for the words of encouragement for all. You stand up for Election Integrity *always*, not just when it may or may not affect some candidate you care about. For the record, since Laris mentioned it, I don't care about any of 'em. This year, I'm tossing my support behind the VOTERS. Someone's gotta support THEM for a change.

Anyway, yes, I'm mighty concerned about the pushback that we're seeing from progressive quarters. As if it's okay that 80% of the ballots in such an anomalous election have never been counted or examined by anyone. It's not. They need to be counted. Every vote. And counted accurately (no matter what the results).

I had a post nearly ready to go on more concerns about that pushback, and some of the extraordinary behavior I've seen from some of the so-called Progressives over the last two days. Last time I saw it, it was 2004, and it wasn't the Progressives who were calling me names like "crackpot" "Tawana Brawley" and worse for reporting on concerns about Election Integrity.

May not get it posted tonight due to the breaking news (Kucinich filing for a NH recount! - http://www.bradblog.com/?p=5544 )

Anyway, thanks also to Larisa, btw, both for speaking out and for so much of her own work and dogged investigative reporting on EI issues. Especially "back in the day" when it was a pretty lonely world for those willing to report on such things. Before it became NYTimes Mag cover-girl material :-)
