A Close Look at How Siegelman “Lost” the
2002 AL Governor’s Race: The Role of
Central Tabulators
Posted by Time for change in General Discussion

A close look at the 2002 Alabama Governor’s race suggests that the
fraud perpetrated in that election was more obvious than even the
2000 or 2004 U.S. Presidential elections. The final official results were
Riley 672,225, Siegelman 669,105 – a difference of 3,120 votes,
representing a margin of 0.2% of the total.

It would behoove us to have a good understanding of how this
happened, because I have a slight suspicion that we’ll see more of
this sort of thing this November, and it should be much easier to
prevent if we know what to look for.

Fifth better than nothing
Opinion by Freddie Hinden in the Anniston Star

And finally, if Karl Rove had no involvement in this matter, he should
appear before the House and Senate Judiciary Committees and testify
under oath, and not hide behind executive privilege as he has when
he has been called before these committees to testify. Claims of
executive privilege in these matters are weak at best and, at worst,
corrupt. Rove should be subpoenaed to appear, and if he refuses, he
should be put in federal prison until he does agree to give testimony.

As Siegelman stated, even if Rove pleads the Fifth, that's better than
nothing.
