73. Refusal of open release questions credibility; selective release implies
Edited on Wed Aug-17-05 10:09 PM by autorank
collusion. Sorry, those are the facts. If you have nothing to hide, talk, open up, release the data. The election process belongs to the public, not you or Mitofsky or the venal network consortium. There are real questions that abound. Release the data and allow precincts to be identified. Let's see what happens. It is so painful to hear you ask us to prove the data would be useful when the data is not available. This is just awful reasoning, stunningly so.

Releasing things to ESI and febble, selectively, is an outrage. Who are they? Why should they be the arbiters of the most important decision of the new century? A broad release diminishes questions, selective releases, well... Your logic is painfully inadequate. It's reminiscent of the selective release of the Dead Sea Scrolls -- we know what that's about, conformity with the prevailing views of the holders of the data, in both cases.

Release the data is the appropriate position. You can't lose, if you really want to settle the issue. If it proves fraud, you win because that's new data. If it doesn't or is inclusive, you win again. But to say the following is making about you: "I am perplexed and troubled by the apparently widespread conviction that Mitofsky believes he has in his possession information that could save democracy, and/or that full release of the data would provide some huge advance in our ability to assess fraud" . The American public has a right to the data, regardless of you being "troubled."

Release the data to everybody, period.
