Tanner was corrupt beyond words and a potent symbol of the divisions rending our country apart. It's good to see him leave a post of such national importance.
And speaking of other things rending our country apart, I'll repeat it here:
***SOUTH CAROLINA PRIMARY ALERT: NON-AUDITABLE, HACKABLE TOUCH-SCREEN MACHINES TO BE USED***
Folks, to anybody living in South Carolina, make a stink about this, write letters to the editor, go to the statehouse, whatever it takes-- and DEMAND that South Carolina primaries use paper ballots that are hand-counted, multiple times, and verifiable!
It would be very easy to rig the SC primaries since the touch-screen machines have no paper trail and nothing to audit. After the fiasco of NH-- with Obama winning in the hand-counted (and easily verifiable) ballots yet losing on the Diebold ballots, something is very fishy here, and we need to make sure that SC is absolutely transparent. Make sure there are paper ballots!

Someone tell why this information never reach MSM.
Minorities are not a factor because we die before we become elderly. They have written us off before our very eyes. Can you tell me how many African-Americans were in the meeting? Did he get terminated or promoted to a higher position? This is disgraceful. How long was he in this position?
No wonder our Voting Rights Bill was in jeopardy, with this fool in charge.
Has Senator Obama ever addressed this issue?

Doesn't Holt look like parts of his face are falling off.
Maybe he needs some sand paper for that face.
I am sick of these people, how many of your candidates currently in the Corporate Media are saying anything about vote integrity.
Put all the world shit to the side and answer that!

Obama called for Tanner to be fired, so, yes, he is on top of the situation in a way few others (other than, perhaps, John Conyers, Artur Davis, and Keith Ellison) are.
