The BRAD BLOG has been under a Dedicated Denial of Service (DDoS) hack-attack at various times since we've begun reporting this story. If you have trouble getting in or the site is slow in loading, that is why. Please keep trying.

PLEASE NOTE: I am not, for the moment, focusing here on alleged Dirty Tricks and/or reports of Voter Suppression/Disenfranchisement on Election Day; although there were plenty of such reports they are being well-covered by others (a database of such reports can be found here, and further info here). I am largely, for now, looking at emerging hard evidence documenting potential fraud and/or mistabulation of actual votes cast by Americans on 11/2/04, with a focus on disturbing trends related to Ohio and Florida.

For the record, I voted for neither Bush nor Kerry, but have been a long-time critic of Bush and the corruption in the two-party system. My interest in this story now is due to concerns about ensuring an accurate vote count that reflects the will of the people in the world's most important democracy!

Keep checking back for more items as they emerge! MEDIA INQUIRIES HERE...
