Stop! Thief!

Bob Fitrakis & Harvey Wasserman, op-rdding at OpEdNews.com say there's proof that that '04 election was stolen. But their story, "Powerful Government Accounting Office report confirms key 2004 stolen election findings" is one we've seen, the one where the GAO says they investigated and, "hey, it looks like these machines have problems and can be tampered with." Which isn't precisely proof that an election was stolen. And yet....

Election officials in Mahoning County now concede that at least 18 machines visibly transferred votes for Kerry to Bush. Voters who pushed Kerry's name saw Bush's name light up, again and again, all day long. Officials claim the problems were quickly solved, but sworn statements and affidavits say otherwise. They confirm similar problems in Franklin County (Columbus). Kerry's margins in both counties were suspiciously low.

Bottom line? Secure, verifiable voting mechanisms? Not a partisan issue. People's votes have to count. And be counted. Accurately.

(And now I'm grumbling, at least privately. We failed to elect Bush twice and yet there he sits....)
