Friday evening, the Illinois Ballot Integrity Project and the Moraine Township Democrats sponsored a discussion with Mark Crispin Miller author of Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election and Why They’ll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them). The discussion centered around the issues of vote suppression and ballot integrity. I could discuss the vote suppression techniques or the data that indicates that votes were flipped from Kerry to Bush, but Miller did not discuss the details and you can read all about it in his book, or in the little reported on GAO report, or in the Conyer’s Report on the 2004 vote in Ohio, or in Bobby’s Rolling Stone article. All these folks know a lot more about that stuff than do I and I think that Miller’s point about our culture and how Bush’s communications worked it after 9/11 is much more interesting.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
