Billmon, on Hackett's district:

The ability of the Rovians to pull fresh GOP votes out of those two counties certainly challenged plausibility, and, in Clermont's case, almost defied mathematics. Consider the fact that according to the Census Bureau, Clermont's population rose only 4.4% (about 7,800 souls) between 2000 and 2003, while reported GOP turnout increased by roughly 31% (about 14,600 votes) from 2000 to 2004. This in a county that only had about 122,000 registered voters last year, according to the Cincinatti Enquirer. Mr. Diebold must be very proud.
Hackett is running for Congress in a special election this Tuesday. Billmon is referring here to questions about Diebold voting machines.

I could kick myself for not bringing this up earlier although I did comment on Swing State today.

This plan could be the ticket around Diebold:

I don't see any way that Hackett wins this. And it has little to do with how many people show up to vote.

The GOP run the system. It's closed and corrupt. They won't allow Schmidt to lose.

Hackett is a great candidate...but he lost this one last year.

As long as the election technology is under GOP control, there will never be another Democratic majority in CONgress, the Senate or the White House.

I am certain that they understand this and it is the wellspring of their arrogance.

The only way to save this country is to take back control of the electin technology.
