Every DUer should know what Jimmy Carter said about the last Pres. electio
Here's what the Carter Center said about our election system in 2004--that our election system does not meet the MINIMUM standards of transparency and verifiability, and they therefore COULD NOT monitor the U.S. election. Does not meet MINIMUM standards!

I pulled this from Peace Partiots post here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

We have a well respected man who monitors election around the world, and he wouldn't/couldn't monitor the election in his own country because it didn't meet the minimum standards his organization sets. Does this say anything about the need for election reform?
