Southern politician speaks out on election fraud

Siegelman still says election was pilfered


Ex-governor using professor's report to back up his claim

By Dana Beyerle
Montgomery Bureau

MONTGOMERY -- Former Gov. Don Siegelman still believes the 2002 governor's race was stolen from him by someone who manipulated a Baldwin County vote-count computer.

He's using an Auburn University professor's report to back him up.

"Oh yeah, I believe it. Absolutely,'' Siegelman said last week. "There's no way for a computer to get different results.''

On Nov. 5, 2002, Baldwin County election officials, based on a vote tally at 11:04 p.m., initially reported that Siegelman got 19,070 votes in the county, while challenger Bob Riley got 31,052.

"The manipulation that I suspect took place, I'm pretty certain took place in the tallying machine,'' Gundlach said. "After everybody left, except a handful of Republican officials, they ran another set and pulled the second set back and ran a third set. (The third set) were the final certified results, which gave Riley the election.''

1. He's Right
The 2002 Gov race was stolen from us here in Alabama.

While I don't want Governor Siegelman to run for Gov again, I really do appreciate him addressing the voter fraud here in Alabama... it's everywhere.

3. Which do you think was their biggest motivation for fixing that election?
Wanting to get the Office of Alabama Governor in their hands or preventing a possible presidential run by Siegelman?

8. Very simple for Siegelman. He wouldn't have voted for the war....
...He wouldn't have gone along with the war and the promises Alabama wanted to make happen in preparation for the wars ahead and taking all of the oil from other countries.

9. Same election...
...stole a Seante seat from Max Cleland too. Makes one wonder how many House and Senate seats the "Majority" part holds are illegal and illegitimate. By my own research I see the House of Rep. should have gone Democratic in 2000 and the senate would have followed in 2002. WAY different picture for chimpy today if he didn't have all this foul-weather cover from the congress.
