Kendall, the article says "more likely" and "did not find evidence of a conspiracy among Florida officials".
That's all it says.
Reference Bart's post above regarding politically posturing and muck swimming. This is all about spin doctors and self-serving politicians.
The fact is neither you nor I nor anyone else "Knows" what happened there. What you're expressing is your opinion. An opinion that does not have access to all the facts. And you somehow extrapolate that to the truth?
Somebody leaked the report for a reason and you seem to be the target audience. Why allow yourself and opinions to be manipulated like that?
