The Funniest Things Keep Happening In Ohio's Clermont County
I keep forgetting to post this, but luckily Charles gave me an e-mail reminder. See, I tend to pay little heed to many We-Wuz-Robbed lefty electoral tales of woe, because unless there's good evidence to back them up, 1) we look stupid and lose credibility, 2) we come off as The Folks Who Cried Wolf, which means that people won't listen to us when we really do find evidence of electoral fraud, and 3) these tales are used as a crutch/excuse for the terminally cynical/lazy not to take action. (By the way: There's abundant evidence of fraud in Florida in 2000, and Ohio in 2004. But the Ohio fraud investigation was hampered by the involvement of grandstanding jerks like Bev Harris, who became the public face of the investigation and turned off a lot of people who would otherwise have been willing to listen to our concerns.) And now, Billmon presents a good case for getting some officials in Clermont County -- the big red heart of Ohio's Second District -- under oath as to their handling of voting machinery last Tuesday. Check it out. (Very Late UPDATE: Thanks to PhD9 of What A Country for pointing this out!)
In gratitude, I want to note to the readership that Paul runs a blog titled What a Country!
