Commondreams claims election was rigged, without showing evidence

Filed under: — adam @ 8:35 am

"When I spoke with Jeff Fisher this morning (Saturday, November 06, 2004), the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida’s 16th District said he was waiting for the FBI to show up. Fisher has evidence, he says, not only that the Florida election was hacked, but of who hacked it and how. And not just this year, he said, but that these same people had previously hacked the Democratic primary race in 2002 so that Jeb Bush would not have to run against Janet Reno, who presented a real threat to Jeb, but instead against Bill McBride, who Jeb beat."

The rest of the article goes on to describe a number of irregularities in the vote counts – discrepancies between exit polls and final numbers, differences between number of registered voters and number of
votes cast, and high swings across party lines in certaing counties (lots of registered democrats, but republicans win big). There’s some correlation to electronic voting machines (optical scanners), and then a long rehash of how to hack a Diebold machine.

The evidence is not mentioned in the article, but I’m curious to see what it is.
