Holy schlaMOLY yes! Youve pointed out a tremendous danger
to this country: with the latest results of the recount indicating that
the vote is within 229 votes, the pressure to cheat is irrestistible
for some. BTW, where do you suppose all those extra votes
actually came from?

This is an interesting site. Shows that the disputed county, Palm Beach,
which is 2/3 Democrat, was the county that showed up on recount with
751 extra algore votes, as opposed to 108 additional for shrub. Isnt
that interesting? With the delta at 229, who could blame those
poor servicemen from selling their unused absentee ballots for say,
1000 bucks a pop, where an agent would take them to Mexico,
get them postmarked 6 November, for a modest fee, and so buy
the US presidential election for a song? This situation is so ripe
for corruption, I dont know what to say about it. spike
