So the FBI Investigates THIS Election?
AZCentral: "Fedrl authorities seized ballots cast in a 2004 Republican primary, a move that could put to rest a long-running dispute over who won the race. FBI agents met w/staff members from the Maricopa County Treasurer's Office to take control over the ballots. At issue is the outcome of the close race between John McComish and Anton Orlich. McComish prevailed after an automatic recount found nearly 500 new votes, reversing the initial outcome. McComish went on to become state representative for District 20. Ever since, Orlich and his supporters have questioned how so many new votes appeared during the recount. After reviewing the voting machines used in the election, Douglas Jones, a University of Iowa computer scientist, said he could not rule out the possibility of fraud unless he examined the ballots to determine whether there had been tampering." Oh... if only the same could be said for the election in 2000 & 2004. But hey, if you live in Ohio, OH law HB3 will eliminate ALL RECOUNTS COMPLETELY. And God knows, the state of Ohio has never been important in an election, eh?
