This is turning out to be really weird can the Bush Brothers get away with this, is it true for that matter.



CONGRATULATIONS, MR. PRESIDENT!
FLORIDA'S COMPUTERS HAVE ALREADY COUNTED THOUSANDS OF VOTES FOR GEORGE W. BUSH


Before one vote was cast in early voting this week in Florida, the new touch-screen computer voting machines of Florida started out with a several-thousand vote lead for George W. Bush. That is, the mechanics of the new digital democracy boxes "spoil" votes at a predictably high rate in African-American precincts, effectively voiding enough votes cast for John Kerry to in a tight race, keep the White House safe from the will of the voters.

by Greg Palast

To understand the fiasco in progress in Florida, we need to revisit the 2000 model, starting with a lesson from Dick Carlberg, acting elections supervisor in Duval County until this week. "Some voters are strange," Carlberg told me recently. He was attempting to explain why, in the last presidential election, five thousand Duvalians trudged to the polls and, having arrived there, voted for no one for president. Carlberg did concede that, after he ran these punch cards through the counting machines a second time, some partly punched holes shook loose, gaining Al Gore160 votes or so, Bush roughly 80.

"So, if you ran the 'blank' ballots through a few more times, we'd have a different president," I noted. Carlberg, a Republican, answered with a grin.

Election supervisor Ion Sancho believes some voters are being intimidated

Greg Palast, reporting
A secret document obtained from inside Bush campaign headquarters in Florida suggests a plan - possibly in violation of US law - to disrupt voting in the state's African-American voting districts, a BBC Newsnight investigation reveals.

Two e-mails, prepared for the executive director of the Bush campaign in Florida and the campaign's national research director in Washington DC, contain a 15-page so-called "caging list".
It lists 1,886 names and addresses of voters in predominantly black and traditionally Democrat areas of Jacksonville, Florida.more

Ion Sancho, a Democrat, noted that Florida law allows political party operatives inside polling stations to stop voters from obtaining a ballot.


The reason why they can be stopped from obtaining a ballot is if they show up in the wrong voting place or cannot prove they are who they say they are. Nothing at all wrong with that it is the law.


They may then only vote "provisionally" after signing an affidavit attesting to their legal voting status.


These provisional ballots were created as a result of the 2000 election in which people showed up claiming to be registered that did not show up on the voter rolls. Nothing wrong with that either but the democrats claimed it disenfranchised the minority vote so it was the democrats that pushed for the provisional ballots. After the polls close the poll workers attempt to verify the provisional ballots and if they are in fact true voters their votes count. If not they don't.

Pretty simple and no fraud all very legal. This is just fear pandering by the democrats to try and make the Republicans look bad.
