Some Key Post-"Election" Stories
In Florida, there was a substantial drop off in Democratic votes in proportion to voter registration in counties utilizing optical scan machines that was apparently not present in counties using other mechanisms. http://ustogether.org/election04/florida_vote_patt.htmThe website cited by the Congressmen has been referenced in several other articles including Evidence Mounts That The Vote Was Hacked by Thom Hartmann. This is a pretty thorough examination of several common threads explaining the most commonly reported fraud. Plus it contained the excerpt below without any further detail about the evidence:
When I spoke with Jeff Fisher this morning (Saturday, November 06, 2004), the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida's 16th District said he was waiting for the FBI to show up. Fisher has evidence, he says, not only that the Florida election was hacked, but of who hacked it and how. And not just this year, he said, but that these same people had previously hacked the Democratic primary race in 2002 so that Jeb Bush would not have to run against Janet Reno, who presented a real threat to Jeb, but instead against Bill McBride, who Jeb beat.I suggest frequent Googling of the name Jeff Fisher for the next several days.
According to this AP story from Wednesday, there had already been at least 1,100 reported problems from Tuesday's "election." These ran quite a range, from Palm Beach (FL) counting 88,000 more votes than voters, to Broward (FL) machines that counted backwards, to Carteret County (NC) losing votes on machines that could only count to 3,005, to a Columbus (OH) machine that gifted 3,893 votes to Bush and Craven County (NC) which gave him 11,283 more.
Also new in the GuvWurld News Archive:
Cincinnati Enquirer - Warren County (OH) Shields Vote Counting From Media
Global Research - Massive Voter Suppression and Corruption in Ohio
Vindicator (Youngstown, OH) - Errors Plague Voting Process in OH, PA
Then you have some of the more perspective oriented items, all of which I highly recommend:
Online Journal - You are now living in a fascist empire
VoteScam - A Brief History of Computerized Election Fraud in America
Global Research - The Stolen Election of 2004, Welcome Back To Hell
Like I said, lots more in the Archive, plus I suggest visiting these other compilation sites:
Election Incident Reporting System
and for more on the data see:
Surprising Florida Election Results
Why Did CNN Change Their Exit Poll Data?
The Randi Rhodes Show (may not stay current)
Let me throw in just one paragraph here to summarize the thrust of the most likely fraud. In Ohio and Florida, specifically in precincts using optical scan machines, the data show a mismatch between the large number of newly registered Democrats, presumed to be voting for Kerry, and the votes tallied for Kerry. The same precincts are also suspect because the exit polls and the vote tallies were so far off (while exit polls were far more accurate in other places). And ultimately, I think the explanation is cinched in this Global Research article which explains that the small number of voters who cast their ballots after the final exit polling was reported somehow managed to account for a disproportionate sway in the tally (in other words, we are told to believe that 16 Floridians represented a 4% swing for Bush when this is not statistically possible).
So, while most if not all of the fraud instances catalogued have been to Bush's benefit, I remind you that it will not be helpful to argue Kerry has won. The GuvWurld blog will be unveiling a new version of the No Confidence Resolution sometime in the next 24 hours.
