19. TIA bashing levers, as usual. ES&S applauds.

TIA's the guy who trashes levers by re-posting EIRS complaints claiming that a lever machine didn't punch through the ballot and left a chad. :eyes:

If TIA is such a numbers guy, why doesn't he get his hands on county-level, or even machine-level tallies for New York? I agree that the use of computers to tally individual machine totals is a bad idea...just like it is everywhere else in the country. But throw the levers out because of the central tabulation? How does that remotely make sense? You could hand-count at the precinct and have the SAME problem.

I'm assuming he's good with numbers, but his really bad logic calls it all into question.
