Palast: a million votes already stolen
It's not even Election Day yet, and the Kerry-Edwards campaign is already down by a almost a million votes. That's because, in important states like Ohio, Florida and New Mexico, voter names have been systematically removed from the rolls and absentee ballots have been overlooked—overwhelmingly in minority areas, like Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, where Hispanic voters have a 500 percent greater chance of their vote being "spoiled." Investigative journalist Greg Palast reports on the trashing of the election.
The Democrats have the momentum, but the Bush team has its pitiless disdain of the process going for it, not to mention the means, motive and opportunity. We know what they want to do. Whether dirty tricks will be enough to frustrate the will of the people, again, we'll see.
