When GOP needed 7000+ votes to steal Don Siegelman's Governorship they *found* them OVERNIGHT
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 06:03 PM by blm
in a machine they then erased.

Terry McAuliffe let them get away with it as it was apparent to some of us that he never had any interest in securing 2002, 2003, or 2004 for Dem candidates and voters.

Wisconsin doesn't look like Florida. It looks ALOT like Alabama.

4. hmmm...maybe that's another reason Idol was moved to Wed. the day after any Tuesday voting.
Wouldn't put ANY little thing past the fascists. Not even this. ; )

3. Yeah. I'm afraid so..........
IF the ballot doesn't work anymore (and it's obvious it doesn't), time for other measures.

Start with a general strike. And make it HURT.

5. We have to count on Wisconsin's Sec of State to rise up and demand a thorough audit.
Along with a full recount.

6. and if the votes cannot be audited, they don't count..
Pretty soon we'll have to go back to..

Everybody for "A"...stand over there..for "B", stand over there..and then count noses literally..

2000 election should have taught us all a lesson, but apparently we really do never learn :(


The only way to win, is to register republican, and then turn out in overwhelming majority, so that republicans are caught flatfooted and unable to cheat as easily


If you are registered "R", your voting rights will always be honored.. To have your vote counted you must start thinking like a republican and acting like one too,,,,until you cast the vote :evilgrin:

9. Hey there's an idea. But we would miss the chance to vote for the few progressives in the primaries.
I'm still glad I voted for Edwards, at least for what he stood for, even though....

13. What's the turnout % for Waukesha?
If there was a significantly higher turnout than the statewide 38%, then there's something funny going on. Prosser had a 73% to 27% advantage in Waukesha. Is that implausible? I hope that whether or not the numbers appear to be fudged, they'll go back and do a full recount of the paper ballots from that county. They do have paper originals, right?


:shrug:

23. don't forget old Carville's past role as well:
Did Carville Tip Bush Off to Kerry Strategy (Woodward)


By M.J. Rosenberg | bio




On page 344, Woodward describes the doings at the White House in the early morning hours of Wednesday, the day after the '04 election.

Apparently, Kerry had decided not to concede. There were 250,000 outstanding ballots in Ohio.

So Kerry decides to fight. In fact, he considers going to Ohio to camp out with his voters until there is a recount. This is the last thing the White House needs, especially after Florida 2000.

-snip

"Carville told her he had some inside news. The Kerry campaign was going to challenge the provisional ballots in Ohio -- perhaps up to 250,000 of them. 'I don't agree with it, Carville said. I'm just telling you that's what they're talking about.'

-snip

http://www.tpmcafe.com/blog/coffeehouse/2006/oct/07/did...

so POOF! Blackwell turns 250,000 provisionals into 155,000 and even though provisional ballots favor Dems, that new number makes it almost impossible for Kerry to win. One reason I HATE THE DLC!

25. they both fear a real populist that works for the people and sends
the real crooks to a real federal prison. Just remember how a Dem DoJ investigate what happened with Don Siegelmann after they took control. He realized it was election fraud that lost him the election and wouldn't be silenced about it. I have an early letter from him (while in prison & while I worked to investigate Ohio) saying it was election fraud and he wasn't willing to be silent.
