Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Ohio -- 2 Election Workers Convicted of Rigging 2004 Presidential Vote

Per AP

Two election workers in the state's most populous county were convicted Wednesday of illegally rigging the 2004 presidential election recount so they could avoid a more thorough review of the votes. . . Special prosecutor Kevin Baxter . . .insisted the employees broke the law when they worked behind closed doors three days before the public Dec. 16, 2004, recount to pick ballots they knew would not cause discrepancies when checked by hand so they could avoid a lengthier, more expensive hand recount of all votes.

If you remember that it was the the Green and Libertarian Party candidates that insisted on a re-count, not the Democrats or John Kerry. And remember that the money to pay for the recount was raised from us on the Internet, not paid for out of the $75 million or so that Kerry reportedly had left in his campaign war chest after the "Election" in Ohio.

Snark alert:

Yet Kerry's continued and then broke his promise to "Count Every Vote" in 2004.

Yesterday Kerry decided to quit the 2008 Election, luckily this time he did it before election day instead of after.
