104. Nice work
Our website posted an article about the Tulsa World fiasco, entitled: "Tulsa World on Okla. Vote Totals: We Have no Idea"

Here are a couple of excerpts from that article:

I'm as skeptical as the next guy (provided the next guy isn't a neocon) about our current system of voting, especially when the votes are tallied by EE&S Corp (as they are in Oklahoma), who have clear ties to numerous ultra-right individuals and organizations, and have already been implicated in several other voter fraud investigations. But let's be honest about this - why would anyone waste their time rigging the election in a state that Kerry didn't even bother to campaign in, and that Oklahoma Democratic Party officials conceded to Bush without even a semblance of a fight?

In the end, the "mini-voting scandal" in Oklahoma might turn out to be nothing, but that's not the real issue here. The real issue is the pattern of deceit, confusion, and misinformation that this election has spawned, not just in Oklahoma, but nationwide. Unless we demand a full and thorough accounting of all the votes that have been miscounted, lost, stolen, or simply misplaced, we can never be certain whether our most important right as an American, our right to vote, is still intact. In Oklahoma, we still have our paper ballots, and they don't have "hanging chads". We can, and should, demand a full recount. Unfortunately, many states don't have that luxury, if we allow our entire voting system to be taken over by an electronic voting system controlled by a few questionable companies, our vote won't matter, and our elections will become nothing more than another commodity to be bought and sold by those in power.

I am adding an update based on your work. It should be posted tonight. If you want me to credit you directly, let me know.
