    Foz just reported that though he has the power to overturn the lower court ruling, USSC John Paul Steven says he will not stop vote challenges in Ohio. Dumbocrats did not want Republican challengers at the polls, had sued and won on one level. That decision was overturned at the next level. Now USSC Justice Stevens has upheld the right to challenge.

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Tuesday that he knows from personal experience how important it is to have an ample cadre of poll watchers monitoring polling places - since vote fraud scuttled his first bid to become mayor in 1989. Commenting on Election Day reports that Philadelphia voting machines were found to be stuffed with thousands of ballots before the polls opened, Giuliani said: "It happened to me in 1989." The Republican mayor told WABC Radio's John Gambling that at the time his advisors had calculated he'd need 50,000 to 75,000 extra votes just to compensate for...

    November 01, 2004 Live Report From Courtroom A Mr. Jordan was just testifying at the hearing in Daschle's lawsuit to stop poll watching. He worked for Howard Dean in Iowa. He said that poll watchers would "roll their eyes" and make a "negative face" at times and that, in his opinion, this constituted "intimidation" of voters. See SDP for a look at the complaint. UPDATE: Another report on Daschle's first witness, the Howard Dean worker. He's a lawyer from Virginia who works for Lexis-Nexis and has been in South Dakot for 48 hours. He testified to "note-taking" and "faces" being...

    The first time Craig Nilles voted, he was a high school senior in West Fargo. This year, as a Concordia College student, Nilles says he's casting his ballot in Minnesota, where the race for president is a close one. "In North Dakota, it is going Republican no matter how I vote," Nilles said. "Why not vote where I can make a difference?"

    DAYTON, Ohio, Oct 31 (AFP) - Democratic nominee John Kerry on Sunday pledged to heal America's "wounds" as he preached to African American worshippers in the crucial swing state of Ohio, two days before the toss-up US election. Kerry, at the altar of the Shiloh Baptist church, tempered his raw meat political message with lessons from the Bible, to chide the social and economic policies of his opponent, President George W. Bush. "As the scripture teaches us, those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength and they will soar on wings like eagles and they will run and...

    Fiedor Report On the News #323 ^ | 10-31-04 | Doug Fiedor
    According to ABC News, only 25% of voters believe every vote will be counted properly. That's good news, actually. It means that something approaching 75% of voters know that the Democrats are planning to cheat any way they can. Anyone else notice the unions have not run political ads this year? Unions got together and decided they could better use that ad money as "get out the vote" money. There is no telling how much money they will be spreading around, but I would guess it would total somewhere between one-hundred and a hundred-twenty million. That's how much they think...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - Republicans lost an attempt Friday to restart hearings on thousands of voter registrations the party has contested, and the court's decision could mean the hearings will never be held. The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati turned down several Republican appeals, clearing the way for a lower-court judge to decide whether to extend her temporary order stopping the hearings. The court action could prevent the hearings from ever taking place because they must be held within two days of the election, state Republicans have said. Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro, who filed one of the appeals,...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Democrat John Kerry on Sunday tried to persuade late-deciding voters that they can put their faith in his leadership by describing the values and beliefs that he says have guided him and would shape his presidency. Kerry said the Bible - and the American dream - says society must take care of its most vulnerable members, but in many ways that test is not being met under the country's current leadership. And he responded to some leaders of the Catholic church who have criticized his support of abortion rights and stem cell research. "I love my...

    Former Vice President Al Gore on Sunday told blacks embittered by his narrow loss in the 2000 presidential election that "it doesn't have to be this way" and urged them to turn anger into energy at the polls. "Don't turn it into angry acts or angry words," Gore said at one stop during a tour of mostly black churches. He also urged worshippers to take advantage of a state law that permits voting before Election Day, Nov. 2. "Early voting is a good idea," he said. "You want to give them plenty of time to count all the votes." Polls...
