4. Could the icing on the cake be any sweeter than to see
Jebby and Cruella go down (no pun intended) because of this.

6. And the President
What if it turns out that the emails prove conspiracy to steal the 2000 election? I don't think we've ever had a constitutional crisis of such magnitude.

It would be fantastic to have evidence to that effect.

5. Details, please
Where are you hearing rumors like this? I would dearly love for them to find a smoking gun from the 2000 election theft, but this could be nothing more than wishful thinking.

7. I heard a teaser on MSNBC this noon, but I missed the story
They just mentioned emails between Foley and Jeb but nothing else. Sorry I don't know more.

I agree. I wouldn't put any stock in this until it is confirmed in the MSM.

19. I heard on other links I look at, but for now
I'm not holding my breath, it doesn't mean the story doesn't have any legs
but for now I'm waiting for something that starts walking like a centipede.

Would I doubt that there is some truth behind it? No, but I want to see the e-mails or chat
just like the Foley story. Foley loved his computer chat and was there at the time of
the Florida debacle.

17. Well, Greg Palast said Jim Baker bragged about stealing
the 2000 election, lest anybody show up and saw I might have not read it correctly:

Page 137 of Armed Madhouse by Greg Palast, Oil Wars Bonus Chapter: The Best Little Legal Whorehouse in Texas

Page 137 under the Heading "Fixed"

"I fixed the election in Florida for George Bush." as Bush's lawyer Baker told an audience of
Russian oil industry oligarchs, bragging about his post-election legal work in 2000. This was
reported to me by my somewhat astonished colleague at BBC Television in Moscow.

That book is Armed Madhouse by Greg Palast, Dutton, NY NY 2006
