Have either of you seen any major media follow-up to:
1)The illegal McBride-FEA campaign ads?
2)McBride's "dubious" silence re. "Rev." Curry's Bush attack?
3)The 18 missing voting machines in Broward (those hard drives had better not be counted on election day!)?
The DNC, through its army of lawyers, solicits "any and all" complaints having to do with the election.

Our voice wasn't heard in 2000. Going to the mainstream press didn't help. We need to keep track of "any and all" complaints this year...including Ms. Oliphant's behavior in Broward during the primaries, McAuliffe's promise to flood the polling places with DNC lawyers, every press story that calls McBride opinion "news" (that should fill an encyclopedia).

Every "outrage" we see in the newsmedia daily needs to be catalogued and archived, because if we find it offensive, it is far more newsworthy and reliable than a paranoid voter's fantasy that a police car parked far from a voting place was part of a Bush scheme to prevent minorities from voting. That "complaint" made the international news, Mary Frances Berry's report for the Congressional Record and will go down in history as an example of Republican "racism"...unless we can take back our public air waves, our schools, our elections, our country.

I have seen only the Carl Cameron report on Fox re: Curry's comments. I posted here and have seen nothing since.

I've seen no follow-up to the other 2 items.

An item that might be of concern that I'd like to pass on to you is that, as of October 18, Hillsborough County has gotten over twenty-five thousand (25,000) requests for absentee ballots. That is DIRECT from SOE and the number deviates from the norm to the degree that it was mentioned in addressing poll workers.

The absentee votes cast in 2000 aren't segregated from the totals, but the total number of votes for all presidential candidates was 359,162 in Hillsborough. You and others might want to check your counties to see if the same thing is happening. The increase could be attributed to the length and number of amendments and the RPOF calls encouraging absentee voting OR could be a South Dakota thing.

I'll keep my eyes open regarding the media follow-up and will let you know if anything turns up.
