Minority voters would be disenfranchised due to old equipment. Injunction blocking the recall election.

The stupid "punch cards discriminate against minority" argument.

How embarassing for "minorities."

BULLETIN

DAVID KRAVETS, AP Legal Affairs Writer Monday, September 15, 2003






(09-15) 10:19 PDT SAN FRANCISCO (AP) --

A federal appeals court postponed California's Oct. 7 gubernatorial recall election, ruling the historic vote cannot proceed as scheduled because some votes would be cast using outmoded punch-card ballot machines.

If the election is put off until March 2004, the Democrats will defeat the recall effort.

And the state has, by their own state law, until 2004 to replace it. Can this be appealed?

Pete Williams on MSNBC almost just choked on getting the word "liberal" out when he discribed the three judges who made the ruling.

How come they can't vote, but they have no problem completing paperwork for unemployment, food stamps, and welfare?

This is why, for those who say they won't vote for President Bush again because he does thus and such that they don't like, that it is IMPERATIVE to stay the course.

Judges make or break our system and they are breaking it.

This delay will insure the Davis recall, and the defeat of Bustamante.

The Democrats and the 9th Circuit have overplayed their hand.

Apparently it will now be appealed to SCOTUS so this is NOT final by any means....

At least that's what FOX News is saying

This is such a stupid argument. As if any system is perfect at any given time.

Of course, if the equipment is updated, then the criticism will be that the digitial divide is hampering all those poor, helpless minorities who can't use modern equipment.

Since this is a 9th Circuit ruling, it can go to the SCOTUS.

Floria redux.

What's that mean? Isn't it sorta like saying . . . You can't have the election but go ahead and waste the time and money as if you were gonna have it until we rule "for sure" later.

I think you're right. What could better unite a fractious GOP than a common contempt for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals?

Since the advent of "Absent-T" balloting, NO VOTER can be disenfranchised! (unless you're a member of the US Military, that is)

Thank God we have the majority in SCOTUS. This will overturned.
