Recall drama now shifts to Hollywood
San Francisco Chronicle, CA - 7-24-03


In the unusually steamy streets of Sacramento, there was a surplus of just about everything that makes for sexy political drama Wednesday -- except the sex, which no one seemed to miss...
...On the sidewalk, there were near fistfights, as young Republicans supporting millionaire recall backer Rep. Darrell Issa clashed with young Democrats armed with "Gray Davis" signs. And across town at Vince's Italian Restaurant, Ted Costa and his buddies were celebrating over steaming plates of gnocchi and fried zucchini.

Computer Voting Is Open to Easy Fraud, Experts Say

By JOHN SCHWARTZ    NYTIMES       July 24, 2003

The software that runs many high-tech voting machines contains serious flaws that would allow voters to cast extra votes and permit poll workers to alter ballots without being detected, computer security researchers said yesterday.


 

Ghost In The Machine

"A defective computer chip in the county's optical scanner misread ballots Tuesday night and incorrectly tallied a landslide victory for Republicans," announced the Dallas Morning News in a story on Nov. 7, just a few days after the 2002 election. The story added, "Democrats actually won by wide margins."


The Texas incidents happened with computerized machines reading and then tabulating paper or punch-card ballots. In Georgia and Florida, where paper had been totally replaced by touch-screen machines in many to most precincts during 2001 and 2002, the 2002 election produced some of the nation's most startling results.

 

Senate Panel Approves Redistricting Bill
Wed Jul 23, 7:28 PM ET
By NATALIE GOTT, Associated Press Writer


AUSTIN, Texas - Despite opposition from Democrats, a Senate committee on Wednesday approved a bill to redraw congressional districts that would likely give the Texas GOP an advantage in Washington...

 

The new map appears as if it could give Texas Republicans as many as 22 seats in Congress, compared to 10 seats for Democrats. The delegation is now split 17-15.

 

Gov. Rick Perry convened a special session after House Democrats fled the state during the regular legislative session in May to break a quorum and effectively kill the redistricting bill.


Just think, Arnold Schwarzenegger may be the next Governor of California.  The last GOP actor that was governor of that state was Ronald Reagan.  This whole scenario is more frightening than THE TERMINATOR.

ALL HAT NO CATTLE TRIVIA:

The police commander that executed a Vietcong prisoner died in Virginia, in 1998, where he operated a pizza parlor.

Isn't it comforting to know that this murderer was allowed to live here in the USA while the conservative cartoonist who did a similar cartoon showing Bush getting shot, was investigated by the Secret Service?

What a country.

General Loan's obituary from The New York Times, July 16, 1998:

Nguyen Ngoc Loan, the quick-tempered South Vietnamese national police commander whose impromptu execution of a Viet Cong prisoner on a Saigon street in the Tet offensive of 1968 helped galvanize American public opinion against the war, died on Tuesday at his home in Burke, Va. He was 67 and had operated a pizza parlor in nearby Dale City.
