What really happened in Ohio and Florida Tuesday night?

If you are aware of the many voting abnormalities that occurred throughout Ohio and Florida last Tuesday during the American general election, and if you are discouraged by the total lack of attention the mainstream media has to this point given the abnormalities, there is still hope!

Tonight, on MSNBC’s “Countdown” (8:00 pm) with Keith Olbermann, the show will pay close attention what has generally been given little attention outside of the blog community. His show review the hard facts that suggest interference or sabotage in the election ensuring Bush a second term in office. Olbermann has made it a personal mission to bring the vote abuses in Ohio and Florida to the national spotlight.

For those unaware of the voting irregularities in the election, or of the general world reaction to the election, check out these links:

Keith Olbermann needs as much support as possible! If you recognize his cause, or if you believe in true democracy, email Olbermann and offer him your encouragement!

The www.guardian.co.uk link isn't working - could you possibly check the link and repost it if it's incorrect? Thanks.

Ok, the Guardian link is now working. However, it talks about the general reaction in England about the Iraq war and American election, so I changed the link header to read: “For those unaware of the voting irregularities in the election, or of the general world reaction to the election, check out these links:”

Sorry about the mistake!

The remaining links should all talk about the voting irregularities in the American election. If you want more sources, do a quick search using yahoo! or Google.

Try looking up Jeff Fisher, he's a Florida politician who is leading the movement to assess the election results.

Well I guess, Bush didn't win the election... So he is a faux President.

Why have an election? Apparently, we can just do exit polling.

Perhaps exit polling would be more efficient. Just have everyone line up and do a tally like we did with student council elections in middle school. Well, perhaps not efficient, but at least accurate. Have little computerized screens that record each tally mark or something. The lines were long enough anyway, although it's interesting to note that my Spanish teacher, who is from Venezuela, usually has to wait at least 14 hours in line to vote there. Of course, she says, they do voting when the highest number of people can come, not like in the middle of a week!

This is not a joke. Voter fraud goes against everything America stands for.
There are so many stories coming out about screwups, it is getting hard to keep track. They do not concern exit polling but found gliches here in Oh, Fla, and NM.

Hang on it's going to be a bumpy ride!

To really help: take my original post and email it to all you friends and family. Keith Olbermann will continue discussing the abuses in Ohio and Florida for the near future guaranteed. As more people become aware of the voting irregularities, more truth will surface!

Susan Sarandon, who has been very involved in Ohio, said on Bill Maher's show that Nader is about to file a lawsuit.

Yes, Keith Olbermann mentioned Nader. Nader is calling on Kerry and Edwards to keep their promise of making sure every vote is counted.
