Florida election was hacked

Florida Democratic U.S. House candidate says the election was hacked and he knows who and how.
In Baker County, for example, with 12,887 registered voters, 69.3% of them Democrats and 24.3% of them Republicans, the vote was only 2,180 for Kerry and 7,738 for Bush, the opposite of what is seen everywhere else in the country where registered Democrats largely voted for Kerry.

In Dixie County, with 9,676 registered voters, 77.5% of them Democrats and a mere 15% registered as Republicans, only 1,959 people voted for Kerry, but 4,433 voted for Bush.

The pattern repeats over and over again - but only in the counties where optical scanners were used. Franklin County, 77.3% registered Democrats, went 58.5% for Bush. Holmes County, 72.7% registered Democrats, went 77.25% for Bush.

Yet in the touch-screen counties, where investigators may have been more vigorously looking for such anomalies, high percentages of registered Democrats generally equaled high percentages of votes for Kerry. (I had earlier reported that county size was a variable this turns out not to be the case. Just the use of touch-screens versus optical scanners.)

Some charts illustrating voting irregularities. Not absolutely conclusive, but certainly fishy. And we've discovered that Warren County (in Ohio) officials "locked down" its administration building to prevent anybody from observing the vote counting there.

MSNBC Keith Olbermann has chimed in on this course of events, and pledges to pull these stories into the mainstream on Monday.

Thus the majority of the media has yet to touch the other stories of Ohio (the amazing Bush Times Ten voting machine in Gahanna) or the sagas of Ohio South: huge margins for Bush in Florida counties in which registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans 2-1, places where the optical scanning of precinct totals seems to have turned results from perfect matches for the pro-Kerry exit poll data, to Bush sweeps.

Oopsy...election was legit afterall. At leastaccording to Dem strategists. But as long as conspirists keep up the stories, they'll just let it fester. How nice.
