AP Story on Yahoo! News: 400 Demand Recount in Ohio (NEW LINK! RATE NOW!)
Edited on Sat Dec-04-04 09:48 PM by geo
Hi all,

You won't believe this, but Yahoo! seems to have pulled a bait and switch. Here is the new link:
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=536&nci...

Please rate this story again even if you rated it before, because the link on the other thread has a rating system that doesn't move.

And while you are at it, here is one on the Washington recount:
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=519&nci...

Let's show them we read this stuff and we care!! :) :)

13. kicked! But do you think people are rating the story low because they
reported a low number of protesters at the rally? I saw some threads that rated low because they thought it was not reported properly? :shrug:

44. You mean
the tens of thousands that they were supposed to attend the rally as many of us were lead to believe in the leading days to the rally!
I guess, it did not happen.

18. Please post/kick with "Time Votes and Avg" in subject :>
Edited on Sat Dec-04-04 10:10 PM by FULL_METAL_HAT
-- for fun and profit!

I'm collecting these "exit polls" for posterity...

FWIW, a subject formatted like:
400DR 10:56PM 202 2.46

would be great.

Note the 400DR for the "400 Demand Recount"

If you want get in on the fun tracking the Washington Recount ("WR") story this would be great:
WR 11:00PM 105 4.07


This yahoo thing is yahooey!

37. Just rated it. Up to 2.63 with 351 votes.
It's also the 6th story on Yahoo's "Most Popular" list, which I think is pretty good considering how little main stream press we've gotten.

51. FBI refuses complaint alleging OH voter fraud

http://www.wbai.org/index.php ?
option=content&task=view&id=4340&Itemid=2

FBI Refuses Complaint Alleging Ohio Voter Fraud

(by Don DeBar, Dec 3, 2004) The White Plains office of the FBI today
refused to accept a complaint detailing allegations of compound
felonies of voter fraud, conspiracy and other offenses in connection
with the Ohio conduct of last month's presidential election.

A group of election activists called Transparent Democracy -
including civil rights attorney Michael Sussman, Greenburgh town
supervisor Paul Feiner, and four others - attempted to present the
complaint at noon today while dozens of protestors carried signs
outside supporting the call for an investigation.

The smaller group was denied access to the FBI's Westchester offices
at 222 Bloomingdale Road in White Plains. Organizer Nicholas Mottern
had previously arranged with the office to present the complaint.
However, when they arrived in the building's lobby, he and the
others were informed by building security that the FBI had
instructed management not to allow them access to the Bureau's
offices, and that the FBI would not send a representative down to
the desk to accept the complaint.
