Bradblog resumes NH updating with long blog.


(BUTCH & HOPPY) + POST-IT NOTES = NH'S CHAIN OF CUSTODY
And Other Recent News from the Election Contests in New Hampshire

Now that we're finally back at The BRAD BLOG World News Headquarters in Los Angeles (for a few days at least) and have shaken off our road buzz (for now), gotten through the latest Sibel Edmonds blockbusters (until the next shoe drops) and have overcome last Friday's maddening 24 hour Internet outage, we've got some catching up to do on New Hampshire's continuing mess of a "recount".

snip . . .

So...From the latest hand count numbers, to the latest media coverage, to the latest reports from Election Integrity experts on the ground --- including one amazing photo essay illustrating New Hampshire's "chain of custody" protocol for its ballots, 80% of which have never been counted or examined by a single human being (that we know of) --- let's get caught up a bit.

Fasten your seatbelts and make sure your Pinto has a full tank of gas...

snip . . .

From there Brad covers the press coverage of the NH recount (spotty to say the least), which oddly enough is probably fairer and more balanced in the NH newspapers than in the progressive blogs.

He fences with some particularly irresponsible bloggers using pseudonyms, then publishes bbv's photo pastiche and resume of the recounting chain of custody.

A fascinating article. As always BF is cautious, making no charges other than stating the fx as reported, but demanding that votes be counted.

I for one appreciate Brad's leadership in the pro-democracy movement in the US. We will have a democracy again in the future I believe and when we get it back, it will be folks BF who are the heroes.

The comments section is particularly interesting I think as well. Evidently, there's a lot more counting to do in NH and Kucinich's observers are not so easily duped as previous reports have indicated.
