43. There is a sliver of a chance for a recount in Ohio
and I heard something quite disgusting this morning there, regarding their apparent failure to account for provisional ballots. I knew this was going to happen -- they put in a law for provisional ballots without putting in auditing controls and some states can't seem to tell anyone how many there were.

In Ohio, the estimate is between 150,000 and 500,000. At 150k, exclusive of all the other fraud there, Bush wins. At 300k, Kerry wins. While I have heard reports of how many provisionals were received, no one can seem to specify where the records are, the source documents that back up the figures.

One political operative said "they are still coming in." (?!?!?)

Provisional ballots are cast on Election Day. There is absolutely no excuse not to know how many were cast, precinct by precinct, as of Election Night. For the secretary of state to do this kind of stonewalling is bad.

. Add that to anomalies in Franklin, Perry, Cuyahoga, Youngstown, Gahanna, and where was it the ES&S guy was dinking around with the computer for the weekend, name escapes me now.

Add that to Greg Palast's blistering expose on the Ohio punch cards.
