13. The difference between Georgia and Ohio was that Georgia was
pure DRE and Ohio was mostly punch card and optical scan, so I understand the "pulled out of thin air" statement as a reflection of those differences.

However, Gumbel apparently completely ignores the fact that the so-called recount was bogus and ignores the fact that counties and the Sec. of State bent over backward to subvert the Ohio recount laws.

He also apparently only looks at vote casting/vote counting and ignores the issues of registration irregularities, other vote suppression techniques, under vote patterns, and provisional ballots in a coordinated effort to steal Ohio.

Personally I don't believe Ohio was stolen using a single method but by using every overlapping and complimentary technique the Republicans could come up with. And many of the techniques were illegal, unethical, and anti-democratic.
