2. He has an alibi ...
This also puts him in the clear as far as being witness to the fraud- lucky him.

According to the St. Louis Dispatch, Republican Paul DeGregorio was -recently appointed by President Bush to a two-year term as vice-chairman of the Comission.
Salary? $140,000 a year.
So what was Mr. DeGregorio doing on Election Day? Why, shuttling around the country searching for irregularities -- in heavily-Democratic states and counties.
First, New York City.
Next, New Jersey.
Next, Chicago.
Next, overwhelmingly-Democratic St. Louis.
Nevada? New Mexico? Florida? Ohio?
They saw neither hide nor hair of DeGregorio on Election Day.
But surely, despite this staggering inattention to red-state irregularities, the man does care about minority voters who waited ten hours to vote in Ohio?
Yes, he does, to the tune of this instantly-infamous quote: "I have seen people in Nigeria wait three or four hours in 105-degree temperature in the hot sun. They don't complain and they are pleased to participate in a presidential election."
Thank you, President Bush, for this gift to election reform.
Our $140,000/year in tax money was clearly well spent.

there's something lurking in the alibis there at the Election Assistance Commission.

4. Bush Promotes Election Official


Elections observer will oversee changes

By Bill Lambrecht
Post-Dispatch Washington Bureau

Paul DeGregorio

All of that added up to nearly 24 straight hours of election monitoring for DeGregorio, who was elevated last week to vice-chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

His job as the No. 2 person at the nation's new election watchdog agency will put DeGregorio at the center of election reform during a time of epochal transition in how many Americans vote. In Missouri alone, 65 percent of voters will see new voting equipment in 2006; in Illinois, about 60 percent.


One year ago, President George W. Bush appointed DeGregorio, a Republican, to a two-year term on the commission, which pays a salary of $140,000. He commutes weekly to Washington to work, typically catching a 6:50 a.m. flight on Monday and returning home Friday evening.


Few voters have heard of the commission, but 7,000 election officials around the county know all about it. Thus far, it has distributed $2.4 billion in federal funds for election reform, including $61 million to Missouri and $45 million to Illinois. (Illinois is in line to receive another $98 million.)


DeGregorio agrees with that outcome, saying he has seen "no discrepancies or problems that call into question the fact that President Bush carried Ohio."
