The Republicans Blow It    Story Here  Archive
George Howland Jr. Seattle Weekly 29 December 2004
The nasty fight for the Washington governor's mansion is not likely to end anytime soon. Election tabulations are not noble searches for truth. They are poorly refereed contests fought by partisan warriors in power suits, and until both the Democrats and the Republicans declare an end to combat, the fighting will continue. At the moment, Democrats are on top, but Republicans refuse to surrender, and who can blame them? Their candidate won the first two tabulations, by 261 votes out of more than 2.8 million in the regular count in the Nov. 2 election and by 42 votes in a machine recount.

Impossible Phantom Votes in New Mexico    Story Here  Archive
Warren Stewart in BuzzFlash 29 December 2004
"That can't be what they really call them!" I exclaimed in amusement. But Lowell Finley, legal counsel for the Green/Libertarian recount effort in New Mexico, assured me that 'phantom vote' was indeed the common legal term for the puzzling phenomenon I had uncovered in looking at the state's canvass report. A phantom vote occurs when the number of votes recorded exceeds the number of ballots cast. Mathematically, phantom votes are merely the inverse of undervotes. However, while undervotes can be accounted for more or less persuasively in one way or another, I have yet to come up with any acceptable explanation for phantoms. Much less, 2,087 of them statewide in New Mexico, just about one third of the margin of victory that determined the ion of that state's presidential electors.

The assassins came back, realizing nothing had been done to prevent another attack upon our democracy.
