Justice Partially Served

Finally some good news on the voting front.. First off it seems as if the state of Florida is going to outlaw paperless touch screen voting systems and mandate the usage of optical scan machines.. This is really good since it would allow meaningful recounts.. Secondly, and much more important 2 of the election workers in Ohio are going to jail for the fraud they perpetrated during the 2004 presidential election recount (You may have seen the story on the HBO special on Bev Harris a while back.. man was I mad when I saw that!). The sad thing is that their bosses (who were clearly part of the conspiracy) got off.. Now I wonder if we can recall Bush over this…

  1. OHIO 2004: 6.15% Kerry-Bush vote-switch found in probability study

    How Kerry Votes Were Switched to Bush Votes

    “In a sample of 166,953 votes (1/34th of the Ohio vote),
    the Kerry-Bush margin changes 6.15% when the population
    is sorted by outcomes of wrong-precinct voting.

    “The 6.15% vote-switch differential is seen when the large
    sample is sorted by probability a Kerry wrong-precinct
    vote counts for Bush. When the same large voter sample is
    sorted by the probability Kerry cross-votes count for
    third-party candidates, Kerry votes are instead equal in both subsets.”

    A second, separate and larger sample confirms the pattern.
