Skeptic BS: Ugh ...the recount (53* d) RE: BS: Ugh ...the recount 05 Apr 01


As a point of correction, it wasn't our supervisor who found her name on the purge list as a felon but the supervisor in (I think) de Soto county. Our Supervisor starting verifying the list and found it to be so full of errors as to be useless. Even so, 41 out of the 65,000+ ballots cast in our county were illegal. These were ones where poll workers didn't call in to verify a voter who claimed he/she had lost their card.

Harking back to a much earlier thread, the Fla Association of Supervisor's of Elections (as a test) did a hand count of ballots in one of the smaller counties, to see if it was more accurate than the punch/machine count system. They re-counted four times. They got four different answers each time. None of which agreed with the machine recounts (Which were the same 3 out of 4). Which would seem to indicate that hand counting isn't a reliable or viable option.

What the Civil Rights Commission found in Florida was that people were, in fact, denied the right to vote, that the fiasco of the company that purged the lists did disenfranchise people but there was no evidence of intent. Which brings us back to Hansen's Maxim: Why attibute to malice.........

Nonetheless, people will continue to believe that there was a plot to disenfranchise voters, facts nonewithstanding. But then, there are those who think W's a competent president and administrator, facts notwithstanding.
