What is our best evidence/indicators of HOW it was stolen?
Advertisements [?]
We have plenty of evidence to indicate the election WAS stolen. It ranges from the USCV election poll discrepancy report, statistics to show that the anomalies favored Bush, states (like Wyoming) had more votes than registered voters (106% turnout), etc. And we have substantial links we can point people to that contain this evidence.

We know the scenario of WHY it was done (motive). The scenario on election day: By mid-day the Bush camp is despondent, and the Kerry camp jubilant the exit polls clearly show a Kerry win. It fact, it has been documented that Karen Hughes informed Bush that he had lost. But Karl Rove wasn't worried. He went to work on the phones. By that evening, everything reversed, and Bush had a most "improbable" victory. (Watch the recent episode of PBS' FrontLine if you want to see most of this unfold.) /

But HOW was it done? This is thrown up as a most common obstacle to even accepting the POSSIBILITY the Bush didn't really win.

I don't agree that it should be an obstacle to having a serious investigation to determine IF Bush really won - the existing body of evidence (mentioned above) should be MORE then enough to justify it. If there is a "reasonable doubt" (and there certainly is), it should be investigated.

But, it still would help to trigger this needed investigation if we could provide more specific details as to how they may have pulled it off. What was actually done?

The speculation runs the gamut from: many people were involved, and they did what was necessary without centralized direction; to Karl (and company) hacked it at the central tabulators, there was secret code on the machines to carry it out (Curtis testimony), the machines were manipulated through wireless communication, etc.

I thought I'd throw this out there in case anyone has found links that rise above the level of speculation as to how it was done.
