Astute reader, Jennifer sent this article to my attention.
And no, I am not finished exploring voter fraud, black box voting irregularities, etc. I don't care if it changes the election outcome or not. It is appalling that the very people who are elected via these machines have a say in how we vote. It's about time that these issues are being investigated. We've known about it for 4 years. It's about time.
Research Team Calls for Immediate Investigation
BERKELEY, Calif., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ --
When: Thursday, November 18, 2004, 10:00 a.m. PST
Where: UC Berkeley campus, Survey Research Center Conference Room --
2538 Channing Way (intersection of Channing/Bowditch). Parking on Durant
What: A research team at UC Berkeley will report that irregularities
associated with electronic voting machines may have awarded
130,000 - 260,000 or more excess votes to President George W. Bush in
Florida in the 2004 presidential election. The study shows an unexplained
discrepancy between votes for President Bush in counties where electronic
voting machines were used versus counties using traditional voting
methods. Discrepancies this large or larger rarely arise by chance -- the
probability is less than 0.1 percent. The research team, led by Professor
Michael Hout, will formally disclose results of the study at the press
