30. And here's how the reporter responded:
Edited on Thu Oct-30-08 09:29 AM by Fly by night

1) How were you made aware of the problems .... :
Ms. Edwards contacted us. I don't know if she reported the problem to Bill Wright.

2) Did Bill Wright offer you any other names of voters .... :
Wright offered no names during the Board of Elections meeting.

3) Are you aware of any emails .... :
NO

4) Can you tell me something about your paper: circulation, daily/weekly, etc?
Daily, Circ. 20,000+

Thanks for your interest,

So there do appear to be similar elements in this report and the ones in Tennessee: the voter (or rather, in this case, the daughter of the aggrieved voter) speaks directly to the press but not to local election officials, local Republican Party chairman ready to make a statement (that can't be corroborated), local election official saying that no voters had reported problems to them, etc.

Methinks a pattern that keeps repeating itself, out here in what's left of the no-holds-barred non-reality-based world.

I'll stay with the story as I can. Hopefully a member of our local press may take the story from here. (I'll let all y'all know.)
