Wilson better get in friggin' trouble. Sheesh. How the hell could they not know that was illegal? Republicans sure do like to cheat and stretch the rules a lot.
And I feel sorry for the poor journalist that got caught up in this. I would sure hate to be a journalist these days. Don't people see how bad everything has gotten in the last 8 years?
Corrupted DOJ - Corrupted Congress - Corrupted Senate - Corrupted EPA - Corrupted CIA - Corrupted telecom companies - Corrupted Defense contractors - alleged selling of nuclear secrets by high-ranking US Officials - and, of course, Corrupted electoral system.
It will take us forever to fix all those things!

Well what do you do with a system that has gone bad, you junk it. Unless that was the plan all along, fuck it up and then sell the new fix to all us suckers.

Read the following story about the state of our elections in New Mexico. Note SoS mary Herrera's comment:
New Mexico Secretary of State Mary Herrera isn’t worried about the machines or the software, according to her spokesman James Flores, although he also points out that ES&S contracts were signed prior to her administration.
Herrera was repeatedly unavailable for comment, but Flores reiterated her office’s confidence in the system.
“I have answered that same question several times, and that is: We are very confident with the system that is in place right now, with ES&S, and we look forward to the primary and general election,” he says. “We are very confident that it’s going to run smoothly, and we are going to do the best that we can—as we always do.”
I talked to the Bernalillo County clerks office this morning and got confirmation that the audit they are doing on ES&S M100 scanners, used throughout New Mexico (and thank god they are doing an audit), is turning up a 70% match rate between hand counts and machine counts...and they are starting with a 25% pull on the first round of auditing.
70%..70%...70? As in 30% of those votes were incorrectly counted.
Heather Wilson won her race in New Mexico's 1st Congressional District (my district) by a vote margin of 862 votes, that number being less than one half of one percent of the votes cast in that race.
30% incorrectly counted.

You know it has got to be OLD "news" (oxymoron) when the director of the AP says the first amendment has been "damaged":
"What has become clear in the aftermath of 9/11 is how much expediency trumps safeguards," Curley said in remarks prepared for the annual dinner of the Radio and Television News Directors Foundation.
(Raw Story). But what the dumb bastards still fail to realize that THEY are the enemy who damaged the first amendment, not alleged terrorists. No one twisted their arms to get them to become propagandists first, journalists last. They willingly jumped in bed with ("embedded") the military propaganda orchestra.
They, the MSM, the f**king wimpy bastards that will not fight for America .. they capitulate, instead, to Amurka.
These bastards at K "corn" KOB, the MSM mini-me station, are cut from the same cloth. Wimpy f**kers who would sell the American First Amendment down the drain for a piece of bubble gum, support Amurka ... land of the dumb Kommandah dumber Chief. Dorks, pathetic f**king dorks!
And the fascist retarded anal retentive Senate who voted to give the fascist owned and operated telecoms "immunity" from what "allegedly" took place (they stuck a stethascopeasaurus up America's private parts) just in case so when BIG FUCKING BROTHER wants to get its rocks off again there will be no reprisals.
They all admit to "allegedly", but really, violating the constitution:
Since 1998, the inspector has approved more than 97% of requests during criminal inquiries, new documents show. According to USA Today, which filed the request, "In 2004, 2005 and 2006, the most recent year provided, officials granted at least 99.5% of requests."
"The idea of the government tracking that amount of mail is quite alarming," Director of the American Civil Liberties Union's national security project Jameel Jaffer told the paper. "When you realize that (the figure) does not include national security matters, the numbers are even more alarming."
(Raw Story). I am ranting because I have posted this stuff here for years. Ho fucking hum is the general reaction.
Now this criminal republican home of BIG BROTHER has fascism so institutionalized that the only reaction out there in Amurka is "Clem, pass me sum mo pork rinds before I bust yo ass" when they hear about this on Lilly Liver's 6 PM newshit.
Meanwhile they keep on sticking the prod up America's private parts while waving that Amurkan flag and pushing for more war crimes:
A U.S. government office in Quantico, Virginia, has direct, high-speed access to a major wireless carrier's systems, exposing customers' voice calls, data packets and physical movements to uncontrolled surveillance, according to a computer security consultant who says he worked for the carrier in late 2003.
(Wired) And the weasel infested traitorous congress can't seem to pull its head out of its ass either.
I hear much whining about passing the Purtek Amuka Akt so's Clem Hatfield don't get shot by John "Boy McCain" McCoy.
Fuck all those idiot Hatfield and McCoy republicans and the bushie dog democrats.
American flag waived, Amurkan flag waved.

And were the 30% random or skewed one way? Let me guess.

Dredd, great rant.
With Repubs being so enamored of ES&S/Diebold machines, I wonder if Hil's increase in votes is a Repub thing. Why? Look at the poll with a McCain match up with Obama and Hil. Obama wipes McCain, Hil is much closer. All they need if for Bill to trot out, and we could have another close election to steal. Also, McCain's win is tainted for some Red Staters, because neither Ron Paul, Huckabee, or the rich guy (how soon I forget or how old I am) got the number of votes that contributions and workers, and polls indicated. Hummmm. Election tampering, who'da thunk it?
Of course Hil thinks she won, wouldn't you? They are both campaigning flat out.

Universal Soldier (a little more univerasal)
She's five foot-two, and she's six feet-four,
She fights with missiles, words and spears.
She's all of sixty-one, and she's only seventeen,
Been a soldier for a thousand years.
She'a a Catholic, a Hindu, a Christian, an Atheist, a Jain,
A Buddhist, A Muslim and a Baptist and a Jew.
And she knows he shouldn't kill,
And she knows he always will,
Kill you for me my friend and me for you.
And she's fighting for Canada,
She's fighting for France,
She's fighting for the USA,
And she's fighting for the Russians,
And she's fighting for Japan,
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.
And she's fighting for Democracy,
She's fighting for the Reds,
He says it's for the peace of all.
He's the one who must decide,
Who's to live and who's to die,
And he never sees the writing on the wall.
But without him,
How would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau?
Without her Caesar would have stood alone,
She's the one who gives her body
As a weapon of the war,
And without him all this killing can't go on.
He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,
His orders come from far away no more,
They come from here and there and you and me,
And brothers & sisters can't you see,
This is not the way we put the end to war.
