I heard on the radio on the way to the bank that Kerry is about to concede in public.

I know it wouldn't change the results, but this is still wrong

WASHINGTON (AFP) - A computer error involving a voting machine cartridge reportedly handed President George W. Bush an extra 3,893 votes in one precinct in the key state of Ohio.

The Columbus Dispatch reported voters who were checking posted results noticed the problem on the website of Franklin county where the capital, Columbus, is located.

The results gave Republican Bush 4,258 votes and Democrat John Kerry 260 -- in a precinct where just 638 voters cast their ballots.

Matthew Damschroeder, the county electoral chief, said Bush actually drew 365 votes to Kerry's 260, while 13 other votes went to other candidates.

Damschroder said the computer error would have been detected in verification operations in the coming weeks.

the least that can be said is that the system is broken


the most

is that it is corrupt and election outcomes are manipulated and sometimes elections are stolen.

IN BRIEF / NORTH CAROLINA

Thousands of Votes Lost Due to Human Error
From Times Wire Reports

November 5, 2004



More than 4,500 votes have been lost in one North Carolina county because officials believed a computer that stored ballots electronically could hold more data than it did.

Officials in Jacksonville said UniLect Corp., the maker of Carteret County's electronic voting system, told them that each storage unit could handle 10,500 votes, but the limit was 3,005.

Expecting the greater capacity, the county used only one unit during the early voting period. "If we had known, we would have had the units to handle the votes," said Sue Verdon, secretary of the county election board.

Here's a nice letter I recieved from the President.
I'm very glad he took time out of his very busy schdule to email me.

Here's the letter-

Dear david,

We had a long night -- and we had a great night. The voters turned out in record numbers and delivered an historic victory.

I want to thank our supporters across this country. At every stop I asked you to make the calls, put up the signs, talk to your neighbors, and get out the vote. And because you did your part, we are celebrating today. Thanks to you, we received more votes than any presidential ticket in history.

America has spoken. And I am humbled by the trust and confidence of my fellow citizens. With that trust comes a duty: I will serve all Americans, so help me God. I am proud to lead such an amazing country -- and I am proud to lead it forward.

Reaching our goals will require the broad support of Americans. A new term is a new opportunity to reach out to the whole nation. We have one country, one Constitution, and one future that binds us all. And when we come together and work together, there is no limit to the greatness of America.

A campaign has ended, and our cause is renewed. The United States of America goes forward with confidence and faith. I can see a new day coming, and I am eager for the work ahead. God bless you all, and God bless America.


Signed
(George Bush)

A character from the Princess Bride. He always claimed things were inconceivable. He was often wrong.

MIAMI (AFP) - Shocked supporters of defeated US presidential candidate John Kerry are seeking help from psychologists, who refer to their condition as "post-election selection trauma.

The Boca Raton News reported Tuesday that Palm Beach, Florida trauma specialist Douglas Schooler alone has already treated 15 clients and friends with intense hypnotherapy since the Democratic candidate conceded on November 3.

"I had one friend tell me he's never been so depressed and angry in his life," Schooler said. "I observed patients threatening to leave the country or staring listlessly into space. They were emotionally paralyzed, shocked and devastated," he told the daily.

"We're calling it 'post-election selection trauma' and we're working to develop a counseling program for it," said Rob Gordon, the Boca Raton-based executive director of the American Health Association.

"It's like post-traumatic stress syndrome, but it's a short-term shock rather than a childhood trauma," he told the daily.
