Let a thousand conspiracy theories bloom
3rd November 2004
I’m about to hit the sack, but current indications are that Bush has won Ohio by a couple of percentage points and thus has been re-elected as President of the United States.
Ohio. Isn’t that the state that Diebold president Walden O’Dell promised to deliver to the Republicans?
I don’t know if Ohio voters used Diebold machines. If they did, I’m certainly not about to say that the machines were fixed in any way. But the problem with voting machines without a paper trail is that there’s no way anyone can be absolutely certain that the election wasn’t stolen. In a modern democracy, that just ain’t healthy.
