216. "and concluded that Gore would have won the vote in 2000"
Why in the world did Walter Mebane conclude this?

How could he automatically guess and assume that, if the optical scanners were used in 2000 Gore would have won the election?

I just can't see it anymore that this man was really doing his homework. A statistician analyzes all the factors, and one clear factor that was horridly overlooked and dismissed was the fact that the optical scan machine of at least Volusia County was rigged by a blamed memory card installed into the central tabulation.

Now, when I look at the results in Ohio and notice that the seals were broken on the memory cards stored in Lucas County I can not imagine how anyone, let alone a scientist, can conclude the optical scanners produced a fair count. Insecure memory cards or scanning devices, which have been tampered with, never produce accurate or fair results. If this happened all over Ohio, the popular vote as well is back at being suspect. Why has he never even DISSECTED this?
