What I love is the latest regarding the 19,000 ballots thrown out in a
primarily Democratic county. The republicans defend it by saying that it's
nothing new, they threw out 15,000 votes in '96 from that same county.
Pardon me, but...this by them is a defense?
1) If the ballot in this county led to 15,000 votes being tossed out, does that
not suggest something's wrong with the ballot?
2) Shouldn't the voting public in that county have been *informed* that 15,000
votes of theirs had been tossed out? Shouldn't they have been notified about
this before *right now*?
3) It was wrong before. It should have been corrected before now. That it was
wrong then, doesn't make it right now.
Or was it simply more convenient and politically expeditious not to tell the
citizens of this county that 15,000 of their votes were going in the ashcan on
a regular basis?
