21. If there were voter intent issues with the paper ballots, I think lever machines
Edited on Fri Apr-03-09 11:13 PM by Bill Bored
would have corrected all that on election night, and the Dems would have won on election night.

So how do you know the ballots that were recounted were not tampered with, and why was the outcome different the second time around? If it's because the scanners miscounted the first time, then I wouldn't use them for the first count unless hand recounts were automatic. That said, no one knows where those ballots have been by the time they are recounted.

Landslide Lyndon Johnson won a paper ballot election too. Nothing to be proud of.

Your Dem SoS is the reason the EAC tried to ban lever machines in the first place. It's bad enough we have federal interference in our elections. Now we find that states have indirectly interfered with other states! WTF?

Pedro Cortes is the reason for a good deal of the bullshit we have to deal with today in NY. And he happens to be a Democrat. Maybe you'd be better off with Repugs running things there.
