18. Bill, why assume the VotePA atty didn't read HAVA? Lot's of people read it...and still get it WRONG!
Perhaps when DemoD is finished having eggnog, visiting with family, and trying to subvert our First Ammendment rights, she'll let me know if I got something wrong.

My sense of what happened in that ill-fated case was that their argument was that voters had to approve the new system. I don't think they argued that HAVA didn't require replacing levers. In fact I think they conceded that! I don't see anything wrong with what they DID argue...it's what they didn't include that might have been a bad calculation.

And something tells me I ain't the only one who feels that they blew it. Kudo's for trying, but what's the point...especially if you set a bad precedent that has to be overcome in a successive case.
