Do it. This needs to be exposed. The attempted Dem. theft of that election was the crime of the century (or two).

And if that VNS ever has anything to do with elections again, we're in trouble.

And I must mention the book "Votescam" here. Great book.

Does anyone have some info on the Texas PR firm that ran the telemarketing effort to contact FLA-DUH voters and tell them they may have voted for Buchanan?

That sicko congressman, Robert Wechsler, was right in the middle of that effort. God, did his sorry a** disappear since then! What a slimeball he is!

However, I don't think the networks are out to cheat.

Great respect for you CB, but I disagree.

VNS was taken out of business and liquidated after the failure of all its uplinks the day of the 2002 election.

They took the hint.

Judge Sauls may be the scarcest thing in Florida ... an honest democrat Judge. He was/is a hero and I also will never forget his judicial courage.

Admittedly fiction, though not altogether fictitious (if that makes any sense).

Good job.

My own belief, as delineated in the essay, is that the DNC and the networks fooled no one in 2000. The administration was not going to permit them to try and throw another election. Thus the NSA shut down the VNS in 2002 to prevent it from happening again. The folks behind the VNS took the hint and liquidated it.

I don't think they'll try anything in 2004. They got their hands slapped in 2002, and the next time they try it they will see the TV licenses of their O-and-O's (network owned & operated TV stations) revoked by the FCC.

Well, don't ping McAuliffe, for chrissakes! I hope he doesn't lurk here!

I would not hesitate to believe that the DNC leadership has this and similar sites monitored by staffers...

If you recall the media tried to give FL to Gore in 2000
VNS was a private consortium owned by
ABC News, The Associated Press, CBS News, CNN, Fox News, and NBC.

All 5 of the networks and cable newsrooms "announced" Gore had won
BEFORE the 2nd time zone in FL had closed.
This cost President Bush votes in the FL panhandle.
I was at a friends house and the State of FL election website results showed President Bush was winning
WHILE the big 5 media TV and Cable newsrooms "announced their" winner.

The big 5 media TV and Cable newsrooms are the real threat to the 2004 election.

..."Early on Tuesday, November 7th 2000, TV stations and various media based in Florida reported that Gore has won Florida which was a big surprise for everyone because of strong republican support. Bush's brother Jeb is governor there and Florida usually gives support to the Republicans. Some of them questioned that and during the night CNN showed 52% Bush's lead over 46% for Gore. It is almost impossible to believe that media could have been that blind and biased to report Gore's victory."...

Do you guys really think that the MSM wouldn't do it again? Rathergate--passed.
ABC memo--passed.
Nightline in bed with VietCong--probably will pass.
They think they are untouchable and I believe they are.
