As of today, the 20th, this is the first that I've heard of this, and I listen to NPR in the early morning and in the afternoon for about 40 minutes at a time on my commute.
I don't understand why more people aren't up in arms questioning the integrity of our voting system. When winners are determined with a margin so thin you could barely get a credit card between them, let alone a piece of paper, we need to ALL demand due diligence. Republicans would certainly be up in arms about information such as this if their candidate had lost.
I feel that in order to STOP any problems from occurring again next time, that everyone, republicans and democrats alike, need to look at voting from a closer, more analytical vantage point. Ignoring the fact that throughout certain states such as Ohio (where I am from), as well as the nation, there were significant anomalies with the voting process just can't be brushed away as insignificant.
It's far more important to ensure that our voting system is fair and equitable and reliable than to simply think the matter is over and done with until the next election. American citizens must be assured that the process of voting is not something to be questioned, but to be cherished as our right in this democracy. After all, given our position in Iraq right now.... the world is watching.

I wonder if Jeb Bush is helping with the efforts to fix this problem in Florida. I don't hear much on the Network News, in fact I don't hear anything? He must be keeping a low profile. :plain:

Here is a copy of my letter, just sent out to every N.Y. Times email address that Brian provided us in an earlier posting. I recommend that we all write something similarly written to EVERY newspaper, radio and television station in America and send these out today.
It is time to honor your responsibility to the Public Trust, not brush it aside for special interest or for purposes of misdirection regarding the truth about what happened on Election Day, November 2, 2004 in the United States of America.
This is not about George Bush or John Kerry. This is about our country's right to vote and to trust the system that is used to count our votes. Right now this is not something we appear to trust - and sweeping it under the carpet by misdirecting us as to its importance is irresponsible to your subscribers.
We depend upon you and the trust we place in your job to present the truth and hold yourselves to this duty you carry to the public.

I live in Florida, I cannot believe what has happened in this election. Where's the outrage from the American people. Are we going to set back and allow this to happen. The main stream media sets back like everyone loves Bush, and that all the so-called religious people decided this election. Bush is not religious, he is more like Satan. The main stream media talking about that country Ukraine government being crooked. Where's the outrage here. The gull of Bush to have anything to say at all when this election in the U. S. is the most stolen election I have ever seen. :angry:
