U.S. Rep. Alcee L. Hastings, Florida Democrat, said the governor would suffer politically if he removed Miss Oliphant at that time.

That's what we need; an impeached federal judge turned congressman lecturing the governor of Florida.

Said it before, and will say it again--Oliphant should be arrested and interrogated immediately about the missing voting machines.

"I dare the governor to remove her," Mr. Hastings told a local newspaper shortly after her mistakes were uncovered. "He'll create a firestorm he'll need Katherine Harris to count the votes for him again."


Wonder what she means by this???? Is she saying we will pull the same s$#t that we did in 2000????

Alcee Hastings? Wasn't he impeached while he was a judge? And the district still elected this guy to a public office? If so, says a lot about this district. None of it good.

The governor sent monitors to Broward County in response to the warnings.

Monitors can't do anything to improve voter IQ. I say have the candidates draw straws to see who wins the county.

Sounds like Miami-Dade has attempted to rehabilitate its image. That county has taken extreme security measures, including police officers guarding them, to make sure the voting machines are not tampered with.

Maybe the county commissioners will get smart and get police officers on the job in Broward as well.

Isn't this blackmail? Doesn't this kind of intimidation break some law somewhere? Listen to these people, threatening, whining, demanding and everyone afraid to defy them. Disgusting!
