Citizens Request Recount in S.D. Mayoral Race (my RawStory article)
Exclusive: Citizens Request Recount in San Diego Mayoral Race

Miriam Raftery

RawStory.com (8/18/05 10 a.m.)

"Enron by the Sea" shows strange electoral anomalies - a 4 percent shift - ODDS OF SUCH A DISCREPANCY OCCURRING BY CHANCE ALONE ARE LESS THAN 7/100 OF 1%, STATISTICIANS REVEAL.

San Diego Democratic mayoral candidate, Donna Frye, may have been robbed of her mayoral seat in the July 25 local election as citizens' audit parallel election vote shows shift of 4 percent, Raw Story has learned. . .

1. Very good
all it takes is ONE case of vote counting fraud to undo the 2004 election.

If it can be proved that Diebold commited fraud in San Diego then they could not be trusted in any election.

2. We're hoping to make San Diego ground zero for election reform now.
Please help by spreading the word!

12. Activists are mobilizing; I imagine you'll be seeing some
demonstrations soon if the recount isn't done honestly or if the media here doesn't give appropriate coverage.

3. Some don't get over it.
Let me reframe: but is this really a worthwhile battle?

(yes, this is irony.)

4. Only if we San Diegans value honest government and clean beaches!
Not to mention fiscal solvency, as we're teetering on the brink of bankruptcy here.

6. never forgive, never forget
The neocons give us no quarter. We can't be soft in prosecuting them for their offenses while they're in power, and we dare not let them off the hook afterward.
