Vote Counting in Florida
I've read Greg Palast on the "felon" purges. I've read about the balloting bias of optical scanning (Repub. majority districts) vs older voting machines and punch cards (Dem. majority districts). None of this is new to me. But I'm still suddenly appalled anew at the 2000 Florida recount.
AlterNet: Election 2004: Something Rotten in the State of Florida: "The Republicans did all they could to avoid manual re-counts in 2000 because they assumed that the more votes were re-counted in south Florida, the more they would favour Al Gore."
