Fraud in Congressional Races?
I think the patterns involved in stealing the Presidential election are quite clear now, but does anyone have anything on fraud in Senate or House races?

Perhaps Kerry doesn't really want to be President with this sort of congress. It would be an especially thankless job, trying to clean up everything Bush has messed up with a non-cooperative congress.

Honestly, Kerry has no political future whatsoever unless he fights in Ohio now.

1. I'm afraid I must agree.
If he chooses not to stand up and be counted right now, or really damned soon, whatever he might accomplish will be short circuited and his future on the national stage will be a source of disgust and anger to the most clued in dem voter. He's too old to wait another generation.

2. I wish Kerry would stand up too...
but the Democrats haven't exactly been fighters and if they are they suddenly die in small plane crashes.

There is no doubt in my mind that Congressional races have been tampered with JUST LIKE THE PRESIDENTIAL RACES were!

We've got to be the media now. Nobody else is going to take up this election issue unless we push it.

4. A BIG lie is easier to get people to believe.. 110K x 31 states= 4.31M
That's his mandate.. Those "extra" votes guaranteed his mandate AND extra senate/house seats in the bargain..

3. I believe the fight is behind the scenes.
Kerry has to handle this differently than Gore did in 2000 to maintain his credibility. He knows well what he's dealing with & it's very appropriate that he keep a distance & let the investigations proceed without any wild handraising. Besides, he's got $43 million to use specifically for post-election investigation; don't you think he's using it?

5. unfortunately
redistricting has made house races so secure there's no need to cheat.

I'd be suspicious, though, of some senate races, especially in Florida.
