7. Thanks, TIA. We'll never know who won
an absolute squeaker of an election. There's a slim chance Fuckwit actually won by a hudredth of a percent. There's a bigger chance that Kerry won by as much as a percent. The process has been so completely corrupted by the right that we'll never really know for sure. Machines have been cleared and the data lost forever.

What I do know about NM is that to believe they won this state, you'd have to believe 17,000 people left their homes and TVs to stand in line to vote for a judge, but not vote in the national election. That was the discrepancy here. Apparently our ES&S machines simply deleted Democratic votes across the board, varying percentages in every county that used those damned machines, instead of flipping them the way the Diebold machines appeared to.

Do you have any data on the performance of those two companies? Did the ES&S machines delete votes nationwide, or were they clever enough to fiddle them differently in each state?

Thanks for these posts. They've been very enlightening, to say the least.
