I would assume so or they probably wouldn't have tried it.

I believe the larger question that should be asked is, "is it ethical"?

So shouldn't your argument be that tampering is tampering and it's all wrong? Instead your primary concern is keeping score?

Par the course for US politics,

You don't like the rules, change them.

Seems to be the motto of both parties.

It's hard to believe that there would be corruption in politics, huh?

Check out Chicago for the real professional cheaters.

OK, I read the first article on one cup of coffee and I'm a little confused.

It seems to be about who is allowed to be present when votes are counted; the voter, a designated representative, or a legal representative. From the article:


"The office of the Attorney General advised us that this was the correct reading of the statute," State Board of Elections Secretary Don Palmer says.

He says the State Board of Elections has always interpreted the policy this way and issued the reminder guidance Friday after learning about Fairfax County's plans to allow advocates to represent voters without the voter present.

Election officials in Fairfax County say they have allowed the representation for years and only stopped it because of the memo sent out Friday.


If I'm interpreting this correctly, it's saying that Fairfax County had been doing things a certain way, but the State Board of Elections pointed out that it wasn't the correct way, so Fairfax County Election officials changed it's policy on who was allowed to be present during the count. So, they didn't really change the rules, they just started following them.

Am I missing something here? If I am, and the rules were changed, what is the impact?

That what I was getting at, Im not keeping score. I think both sides are broken equally, both sides are failing to work for the people. I was just pointing out that it happens on both sides so maybe you misunderstood me and you are trying to keep score.
