Politics - Vote Suppression in Ohio


Bet you're surprised. No? Dammit, what kind of patriot are you? A realist, you say. Oh, well.

Raw Story brings us this delicious tidbit from Alternet.
In 56 of Ohio's 88 counties, ballots and election records from 2004 have been "accidentally" destroyed, despite a federal order to preserve them -- it was crucial evidence which would have revealed whether the election was stolen.
...

Compared to Ohio's Democratic urban core, turnout in the Republican districts was higher than the 2000 election. Moreover, in a handful of counties there were vote count anomalies that made post-election observers question whether Bush's vote was padded. The most notable example is more than 10,000 voters from several Bible belt counties who voted for Bush and voted in favor of gay marriage, if the results are true. In a dozen rural counties, virtually unknown Democrats at the bottom of the ballot received more votes that Kerry, an oddity in a presidential year.
Oddity??? Oddity, is it? I'll give you oddity, you lying sacks of shit. Jeebus. I guess we all knew all along that this was happening, the confirmation just hurts more because we've always hoped and prayed that it was just more paranoid fantasy, and things really weren't that bad, and people really weren't that twisted and rotten and crooked.

Excuse me while I vomit. In return for your lying corrupt scumsucking, you cobags, we got 6 years of an ineffectual idiot who has destroyed nearly everything that once made this country great. For what?

I hope you got a shitload of money you goddamn Judases. I hope it's worth it when you see the coffins coming back from Iraq and the vets lying in their own piss at Walter Reed, and the guys without arms, legs, eyes, or faces. I hope you savored the bodies floating in the filthy water after Katrina. Fuck! We could have ended Chimpy McFuckface and Snarly McCrashcart three years ago.
