My advice to Gray Davis
According to this article, which I believe has been posted elsewhere, there are significant doubts about the accuracy of California electronic voting machines. In the event of the unthinkable happening today, Davis should challenge and attempt to get a new vote in early 2004.

That would allow time for the "bad news" about Arnie to sink in, and it would probably cause a lot of those absentee ballots to switch from Yes to No on the recall.

1. Amazing isn't it??
You can go down and buy a cheap ass $300.00 computer and a printer and print out damn near anything that is on that computer hardrive. But...Diebolds million dollar wonders can't produce a print out of how people voted.

What utter,utter bullshit! Those machines could be programed to print out results very easily,but hell, then the voting would be authentic and be verifiable,but Republicans can't steal elections that way now can they?

2. This is especially disconcerting, since Diebold makes ATMs
Hmm....ATMs have touch screens and printouts.
