New Information Regarding Ohio 2005 Election Results

There's a nasty, smelly mess emerging out a basement in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The geeks are on it, however, and seem to be finding connections between the thousands of missing White House emails and the Ohio 2004 election results. Imagine that...

Did the most powerful Republicans in America have the computer capacity, software skills and electronic infrastructure in place on Election Night 2004 to tamper with the Ohio results to ensure George W. Bush's re-election?

The answer appears to be yes. There is more than ample documentation to show that on Election Night 2004, Ohio's "official" Secretary of State website -- which gave the world the presidential election results -- was redirected from an Ohio government server to a group of servers that contain scores of Republican web sites, including the secret White House e-mail accounts that have emerged in the scandal surrounding Attorney General Alberto Gonzales's firing of eight federal prosecutors.

Hey Lee, congratulations on becoming a contributor.

I'll come back by later and hopefully have something more than that to add to the discussion!

I read the article, and this just doesn't seem very credible to me. As Iglesias, McKay, and Biskupic have all discovered, it's easy to find indications of possible voter fraud. It's something else to find actual evidence of voter fraud (as opposed to bad record keeping, incomplete voter rolls, people who don't understand the rules). This conspiracy theory is about as thin as Alberto Gonzales testimony to Congress last week.

Apparently, Republicans and Democrats both cry in their beer about voter fraud. Their responses are different, though. Democrats come up with elaborate conspiracy theories and Republicans fire US Attorneys who fail to prove Karl Rove's pet theories regarding voter fraud are true.

Let me also note that if Republicans controlled voting results in Ohio, they could have saved themselves a lot of troble by re-electing Mike DeWine as Senator there in 2006.

As a general rule, Ohio is the best barometer of the mood of the nation and supports the winning candidate by a margin nearly identical to the national outcome. My best guess is that John Kerry's narrow loss in Ohio was a mirror of his close national vote loss and nothing more.
