Bev Harris' Breaking Report from Volusia County!
A Smoking Gun in the Trash?

Bev Harris of BlackBoxVoting.org is posting some interesting information from their "Fraud Audit" in Florida.

They're currently in Volusia County, FL and seem to have found some...oddities.

Markusd from DailyKos has a nice roundup of Harris' troubling postings, today on Democratic Underground.

UPDATE: More on this as I've had a better chance to plow through a lot of the postings on this. Bev Harris' main report may be easier to read via her original Democratic Underground posting version. The same information has also just been posted to the front page of BlackBoxVoting.org

Apparently there was missing poll data, discovered "poll tapes" (still trying to determine exactly what those are), differing counts on the differing tapes for atleast one precint in Volusia (Precinct 215, reportedly an "African-American" one where there were extra votes for Bush and other Republicans), items found in a trashbin ready for shredding instead of given to Harris in compliance with their "Freedom of Information Act" and Public Records requests, attorneys, cops, and the eventual "lockdown" of the central GEMS tabulation system in Volusia County and other information.

The bulk of it, perhaps as importantly, caught on film by the cameras of the VoterGate.tv folks who, Harris mentions later in the thread, are "running on fumes" and could use either money, or additional hands on deck as they also hope to cover the coming action in both Ohio and New Hampshire.

While the folks at DU seem to consider this as a "smoking gun" found, I will be waiting and watching for further, more specific details. It's certainly interesting and bears close watching.

And then, this rather tantalizing morsel, a short reply on the thread from Andy Stephenson, one of Bev's partners down there, who posts at DU under the name "God_bush_n_cheney". Here it is in total:

You aint seen nothing yet....trust me on this.
