PA election infrastructure now a "state secret"
http://bostodelphia.blogspot.com/2007/10/pa-election-in...

So here we have various PA agencies colluding to not publicize a statewide list of polling locations, an action explained with a vague gesture to "security reasons." This whole thing just smells off. For one thing, the powers that be in PA homeland security cite the threat of terrorism, particularly the terror bombings in Madrid right before Spain's '04 elections as motivation.

which seems to have been updated a bit, since as of friday afternoon the policy was rescinded, although it's too late for activists trying to register voters.

2. I have worried about this since 2004.
Yeah, get to become Florida and Ohio next year. :puke:

And I am still suspicious of Specter's last "victory".

5. This place is ripe for fraud
There are so many crooks in Pa. government, so many worthless news organizations "covering" them, and so many mindless freakjobs living in the vast wasteland between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, that this could easily be the epicenter of the election fraud of '08.

4. Congratulations GOP...
On retaining the white house and winning back the congress in 2008. A tough task to be sure, but the voters in Pennsylvania sure helped.
