A Nation on the Brink.
By Brad Friedman on 11/16/2004 11:33am PT  

Sure, there's a bloodbath purge going on in the Administration. From cabinet positions ("See ya, Colin! And thanks for nothin'!") being populated with hardline Bush sycophants like Alberto "Torture's Fine With Me, thanks!" Gonzales and Condoleezza "See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, Lie me a River" Rice to the incidiously overt KGB-like politicalization of the previously and historically nonpartisan CIA. (By the way, all of America's failures in the last four years? They weren't the CIA's fault, no matter what your political leaders / radio talk show hosts are selling you.)

While American Moderates/Undecideds had hoped for about two minutes that "we might all come together now", I have a feeling that it won't be long before even those ostriches will soon begin to see that Bush 43 v2.0 will do little but solidify his aptly-deserved legacy of "Worst President Ever".

Which is just one reason to make sure he actually won this time.

In any case, my hope is that it won't take a full four more years, incurring irreconcilable international damage to our country, or increase the already scandalously-under-reported body count and human carnage to record proportions before the American sheeple finally "get it" and demand better for themselves and their country which deserves so much more. But this morning, I'm not particularly optimistic.

In the meantime however, now that Condi's moving to State and the position of NSA is therefore currently wide open, I'd just like to toss the idea out there that I'm available.

Don't make me beg, people. You have my number. Just get it out of my FBI file.

I'll be happy to speak with you any time.

Though I fully realize I'll probably be overlooked yet again. Bastards.

Now Seeking 'mobilization' funds and 'recount witness volunteers'
By Brad Friedman on 11/15/2004 12:46pm PT  

The Green and Libertarian party efforts to raise funds for their jointly requested recount demands in Ohio have been successful! They've raised the initial $150,000 in just four days from over 3,000 American citizens!

Now, they are raising funds to mobilize for the effort, with a goal of $100,000 by November 22nd. If you can help, click here to donate.

Additionally, they are also seeking folks in Ohio to act as "witnesses" to the recount. If you can help them out, be sure to click here to volunteer!

In the meantime, it seems to me that the Mainstream Media is once again taking a nap. I'm not sure that it's yet hit them that a complete recount of Ohio's 11,306 precincts in 88 counties will soon be taking place. Some 70% of those counties, as I understand it, are punch-card ballots, which means we'll soon be counting hanging chads again. Oh, well, they'll figure it out eventually.

For the record, unlike Florida in 2000, there is a specific statewide standard in Ohio for determining the eligibility of a vote on a punch-card ballot. If two corners are detached, it counts as a vote, so the ridiculous argument of "equal protection" that Bush was able to argue to the Supremes in 2000 shouldn't work here. Though I'm sure they'll be coming up with something...Stay tuned...

UPDATE: Looks like someone's finally waking up to what the Greens and Libertarians are up to! The graphic above appears broken as of this update because there is either incredibly high traffic over at the Green Fundraising website (where the graphic comes from) or someone is attempting to hack the site. Either way, looks like their little Cooperative 3rd Party "coup" is finally getting some attention! :-)

By Brad Friedman on 11/15/2004 12:28pm PT  

According to the Nashua, NH Telegraph it appears that Ralph Nader's demand for a recount in New Hampshire will in fact occur:

Nader has initially asked state election officials to count ballots in eight communities, including Litchfield and Pelham, but he has the right to a statewide recount as long as he pays the entire cost, Secretary of State Bill Gardner said.
The earliest this recount could begin is Nov. 24, the day before Thanksgiving Day. That's because the next two weeks are already packed with more than a dozen recounts of legislative races.
Nader has alleged that “irregularities'' in the optical scanning voting machines appear to have inflated the totals that Bush should have gotten in several key states.

Cities and towns in New Hampshire all either use paper ballots or these optical scan ballots manufactured by the Diebold Corp., whose chief executives contributed to Bush's re-election.
Nader campaign officials questioned Gardner this week about why Bush got a much higher percentage of the vote in southern New Hampshire communities against Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry than he did four years ago against Vice President Al Gore.

All eight communities that Nader has asked to be recounted first - Litchfield, Pelham, Sandown, Newton, a ward in Somersworth, Danville, Salem and four wards in Manchester - are within a half-hours drive from the Massachusetts border.

“They couldn't understand why Senator Kerry could do so well in these communities in the primary and then under-perform compared to the 2000 election against Bush,'' Gardner said.
“We made every effort to accommodate the Nader campaign's recount request, and as a result it will come to pass,'' Fitch added.

Reality: Hundreds Dead, including 68 U.S. Troops in 11 days.
By Brad Friedman on 11/15/2004 11:39am PT  

While Rush Limbaugh told his listeners this morning about the "really great news" in Fallujah, some folks may see it differently.

In case you haven't been paying attention (and the media, as usual, hasn't much helped), we've now lost 1189 1194 U.S. troops in Iraq since the who charade began. 68 died in the 11 days following the election alone at the rate of nearly 7 dead U.S. troops per day.

So far this month, troops are dying at a higher rate than any since the invasion of Iraq in March of 2003.

As to the "really great news" in Fallujah, Bilal Hussein, a photographer from AP didn't see it quite that way. The story of his harrowing escape from Fallujah is recounted in this AP report. Here's a highlight of some of the "really great news" from that report, like the incident where U.S. forces shot a family of five as they tried to escape the onslaught:

"Destruction was everywhere. I saw people lying dead in the streets, wounded were bleeding and there was no one to come and help them. Even the civilians who stayed in Fallujah were too afraid to go out," he said.

"There was no medicine, water, no electricity nor food for days."

By Tuesday afternoon, as U.S. forces and Iraqi rebels engaged in fierce clashes in the heart of his neighborhood, Hussein snapped.

"U.S. soldiers began to open fire on the houses, so I decided that it was very dangerous to stay in my house," he said.

Hussein said he panicked, seizing on a plan to escape across the Euphrates River, which flows on the western side of the city.

"I wasn't really thinking," he said. "Suddenly, I just had to get out. I didn't think there was any other choice."

In the rush, Hussein left behind his camera lens and a satellite telephone for transmitting his images. His lens, marked with the distinctive AP logo, was discovered two days later by U.S. Marines next to a dead man's body in a house in Jolan.

AP colleagues in the Baghdad bureau, who by then had not heard from Hussein in 48 hours, became even more worried.

Hussein moved from house to house — dodging gunfire — and reached the river.

"I decided to swim ... but I changed my mind after seeing U.S. helicopters firing on and killing people who tried to cross the river."

He watched horrified as a family of five was shot dead as they tried to cross.

Yes..."Liberty is spreading". And it's all "really great news", isn't it?

'New Ruling' in Cuyahoga County Rejects Ballots Without Date of Birth
Also...19,000 unexplained votes added in Bush-heavy Miami County, OH
By Brad Friedman on 11/14/2004 1:21pm PT  

According to an article in the Columbus Free Press, perhaps thousands of valid provisional ballots in the Buckeye State are now being rejected due to a "new ruling" in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

A new rule for counting provisional ballots in Cuyahoga County, Ohio was implemented on Tuesday, November 9 at approximately 2:30 in the afternoon, according to election observer Victoria Lovegren.

The new ruling in Cuyahoga County mandates that provisional ballots in yellow packets must be “Rejected” if there is no “date of birth” on the packet. The Free Press obtained copies of the original “Provisional Verification Procedure” from Cuyahoga County which stated “Date of birth is not mandatory and should not reject a provisional ballot.” The original procedure required the voter's name, address and a signature that matched the signature in the county's database.

Lovegren described the clerks as “kind of disturbed” after the new ruling came down. She said that one of the clerks told her, “This is new. This just came down. They just changed it in the last thirty minutes.” According to Lovegren, 80 yellow-jacketed provisional ballots piled up in the hour and 45 minutes she observed. By Lovegren's tally, three provisional ballots were rejected because the registered voters' registration had been “cancelled.” The rest, she said, were being discarded because of no date of birth.

The margin separating Bush and Kerry in Ohio was approximately 136,000 with some 155,000 provisional ballots still to be counted, along with absentee and U.S. overseas votes as well.

The article also gives an excellent description of rules involved in any potential recount procedures in Ohio. Given the Green/Libertarian Party's efforts to demand a recount there (latest reports show that as of Sunday morning, they have so far raised $121k of the $150k they are now seeking to fund the effort) that information may be useful in understanding how such a recount may unfold.

As well, the article also gives some interesting information on anomaly related to the late-reported vote totals in Miami County, OH. It refers to a report earlier in the week pointing out some 19,000 votes added to the totals after "100% of the precincts" had reported in:

In Miami County, with 100% of the precincts reporting at 9am EST Wednesday, Nov. 3, Bush had 20,807 votes (65.80%) and Kerry had 10,724 (33.92%). Miami reported 31,620 voters. Inexplicably, nearly 19,000 new ballots were added after all precincts reported, boosting Bush's vote to 33,039 (65.77%) to Kerry's 17,039 (33.92%). CASE is investigating why the percentage of the vote stayed exactly the same to three one-hundredths of a percentage point after nearly 19,000 new ballots were added. CASE members speculate that it's either a long-shot coincidence with the last three digits remaining the same, or that someone had pre-set a database and programmed a voting machine to cough up a pre-set percentage of votes. Miami County uses an easily hackable optical scanner with the central counter provided by the Republican-linked vendor ES&S.

Whether those 19,000 additional votes were absentee ballots added later to the Election Night totals --- as had been the reason given for a similar case of more votes than voters in Cuyahoga County --- I'm not able to determine. The identical percentages of those votes to the earlier tallies, however, is notable to say the least. One would think that percentages would change by at least a few hundreths or tenths with the addition of a full 19,000 votes to the tally!

UPDATE: An item in yesterday's Cincinnati Enquirer speaks to the matter of the provisional ballots rejected for missing date-of-birth:

There was some confusion, but Secretary of State Ken Blackwell's office has ordered that lack of a date of birth on a provisional ballot can't be used to throw it out. "There is a place on the paperwork for a provisional ballot for voters to write in date of birth. It is optional, and it does not nullify a ballot," said James Lee, a Blackwell spokesman.

Let's hope that's the definitive word on that particular matter!

    And Counts All the Republican Ones!
    By Brad Friedman on 11/13/2004 4:59pm PT  

    According to The Albuquerque Tribune, in one Bernalillo County, New Mexico precinct, the judge assigned to determine the validity of provisional ballots, has determined that all the Democratic ballots cast in that precinct are invalid, while declaring that all of the Republican provisionals cast there may indeed be counted!

    From what I am reading, the "standards" for determining acceptance/rejection of provisional ballots across the countries, seems haphazard at best. If anyone wishes to provide more info in comments on how validity is determined in various areas, it would be most welcome.

    The current difference in the popular vote for President in New Mexico, according to AP, has George W. Bush leading John Kerry by just 6,061 votes. The total number of rejected provisional ballots in Bernalillo County now stands at 6,600.

    (Thanks again to tipster Ryan for this one!)

    Presidential, Senatorial Totals Appear Out of Line with Rest of Election Numbers
    By Brad Friedman on 11/13/2004 3:04pm PT  

    As I've previously mentioned, I'm currently a bit snowed-under working on some background stuff related to all of this mess. So my ability to report the latest here is somewhat hobbled for the (hopefully) very short term. I hope it'll soon prove to have been worthwhile however.

    I am still keeping an eye on everything however, and will report the most notable stuff as it comes up.

    That said, lemme just throw out a raw link to this Democratic Underground posting which presents a potentially very troubling analysis of the results data in regards to the North Carolina Presidential and Senatorial races there.

    I highly recommend you give it a look. It's a detailed post and analysis, demonstrating some disturbing results. I have gotten into the habit of waiting to report such analysis until all the "debunkers" have had there go at things, just to make sure the analysis is solid, and then have attempted to summarize the key pieces.

    For now though, since the story is holding up for the moment, and I'm pulled over to related work, I'm just giving you the link to look at without my own analysis for now. I hope to have some, along with a summary, later for you.

    Punch-card counter drops straight-party ballots from initial totals!
    By Brad Friedman on 11/13/2004 1:43pm PT  

    From The Salt Lake Tribune:

    Voters in Utah County had more than a one in five chance that their ballots did not get counted in the initial, unofficial tally from Election Day.

    A programming glitch in the punch-card counter dropped 33,000 ballots from the totals - all of them straight-party ballots. That was more than 22 percent of the 145,769 ballots cast in the Republican stronghold.

    "The card readers were fine; it was just the way it was programmed initially," Utah County elections coordinator Kristen Swensen said Friday. "It was just off by one letter."

    The ballots were recounted Wednesday and the 33,000 missing votes were distributed to the candidates for whom they were cast.

    I should note that this is the first story of it's kind that I've come across, where such an error actually seems to have hurt the Republicans more than it did Democrats. While, for now, this error does seem to be just a "glitch", it adds to the growing body of evidence that our counting systems and software in this country is a pure and unadultered mess which needs strict reform and oversight by non-partisan, non-political officials!

    (Thanks reader Katrina W. for the heads-up on this one!)

    The most 'Conservative' of papers admits the truth!
    By Brad Friedman on 11/13/2004 12:43pm PT  

    This story has been percolating in the blogosphere for some time, but I've yet to report it here as I've been trying to look into it to make sure that it held up first.

    It's big. And now that The Washington Times(!) --- the Bush Administration's #1 mouthpiece in the print media, in other words, the Fox News of newspapers --- has admitted and reported the problem via this breaking UPI report, I'm happy to take that as confirmation of the huge and hackable security hole smack dab in the middle of Diebold's proprietary vote-counting software source code that those "reckless conspiracy-theorists (American citizens) in the blogosphere" have been reporting for some time!

    Washington, DC, Nov. 12 (UPI) - The voting machine controversy likely will linger after a look at the systems source code software from Ohio-based Diebold yielded reports of numerous bugs.
    Computer Science Professor Avi Rubin of John Hopkins University analyzed Diebold's 47,609 lines of code and found it uses an encryption key that was hacked in 1997 and no longer is used in secure programs.
    The Digital Encryption Standard 56-bit encryption key used can be unlocked by a key embedded in all the source code, meaning all Diebold machines would respond to the same key.

    Rubin, his graduate students and a colleague from Rice University found other bugs, that the administrator's PIN code was "1111" and that one programmer had inserted, "This is just a hack for now."

    The implication is that by hacking one machine you could have access to all Diebold machines.

    The story also notes that "Diebold has said it repaired the security flaws in subsequent programs, but that the company has not produced the code for analysis." In other words, they claim that they've fixed the software they said was secure in the first place, but wouldn't allow anyone to verify it. The security hole was only discovered in the first place when discovered thousands of Diebold's "secret" source-code files sitting out in the open on a publically-accessable internet file-transfer site. Somehow or another, they are legally allowed to keep their source-code secret and unverified by any oversight committees!

    I should also note that while the fact that their vote-counting software could be hacked, it doesn't necessarily mean that it has been hacked. However, the disturbing admission now in the Mainstream Media --- confirming what so many have been "running around with their hair on fire" warning people about for so long --- that the private, Ohio-based corporation and huge Republican supporter Diebold, Inc. has created hackable software to manage the bulk of our country's electoral system, and all without governmental and/or nonpartisan oversight is a startling milestone in this matter.

    For data-heads interested in more of the actually geeky background details on this gaping, hackable, security hole in Diebold's software, please see this discussion over at DailyKos where they've been reporting, discussing and examining it for some time.

    This is now --- officially --- very major and very notable news!

    (Thanks Desi for the tip on the UPI/Washington Times breaking news report on this!)
