Tidbit of Disaster

If you missed it, there was a bit of discussion following my post "Recapping Disaster" on whether or not there was significant proof that the election in Ohio (and elsewhere) had been tampered with, been influenced by fraud, etc. Some aren't so sure that the proof was there, contending that Kerry & his lawyers would have seized the situation if there had been. I theorized that Kerry is perhaps too politically reticent to get his hands dirty, and suggested readers look at www.blackboxvoting.org and the list of incidents they've put together.

On Democratic Underground, in the current Top 10 Conservative Idiots list, they point out an anecdote that, while not in itself is proof of Bushco's misconduct, is certainly an interesting tidbit:

"The White House - While we're on the subject, here's one more incident to chew on. The Arizona Republic reported at the start of last month that "Several of Arizona's leading GOP muckety-mucks secured treasured invitations to Bush's swanky Christmas party Thursday." They name a few names, and then mention that "Also spotted, petition gatherer to the stars Nathan Sproul." Who is Nathan Sproul? He's the head of Sproul & Associates, a company which registered voters during the run-up to Election 2004, but misrepresented themselves as non-partisan while refusing to register Democrats. (See Idiots 177.) In separate incidents, Sproul & Associates employees allegedly tore up Democratic registration forms and threw them in the trash. Yup, that's the same Nathan Sproul who was spotted hanging out at the exclusive White House Christmas party. But don't worry, there's absolutely nothing wrong with America's electoral system."
