4. We just can't get our Dems to focus on it. They just won't touch it
and even Kerry didn't want to touch it. Only the Black Caucus...and our party as a whole doesn't even support their own minority Caucus...which has more than minority members in it.

I've never heard an explanation of why they wont touch it that made sense.
Here in my state we've just gone through a battle to get a bill for Verified Paper Ballots, hand recounts and code verification through and it was like pulling teeth trying to get our own Dems to understand what the issues are.

Then we had to educate them about why Diebold shouldn't be allowed to bring their DRE's in after we'd gotten a bill passed. If our voting rights activists hadn't had help from the new Voting Advocacy Groups online...we couldn't have accomplished anything. We sure weren't getting it from our Party which made it so hard for us to get any attention.

WHY IS THIS? :shrug:
