Hope this election worker wasn't Dem.

A poll worker was arrested Tuesday and charged with assault and interfering with an election for allegedly choking a voter and pushing the voter out the door, an official said.

Election officials called police, and the voter wanted to file charges, said Paula McCraney, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Clerk.

"That about tops off the day," McCraney said.

It wasn't immediately clear what sparked the altercation. The name of the poll worker was not released and a Louisville police spokesman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Only reason they're doing that is because they believe the Dems are going to win in spite of the fraud, and they're suddenly trying to curry favor. I say SCREW THEM!

Greg Palast's article today

Postby ninakat » Tue Nov 07, 2006 9:06 pm

Here's how the 2006 mid-term election was stolen.

"Note the past tense. And I'm not kidding."

By Greg Palast

11/07/06 "Information Clearing House" -- -- And shoot me for saying this, but it won't be stolen by jerking with the touch-screen machines (though they'll do their nasty part). While progressives panic over the viral spread of suspect computer black boxes, the Karl Rove-bots have been tunneling into the vote vaults through entirely different means.

For six years now, our investigations team, at first on assignment for BBC TV and the Guardian, has been digging into the nitty-gritty of the gaming of US elections. We've found that November 7, 2006 is a day that will live in infamy. Four and a half million votes have been shoplifted. Here's how they'll do it, in three easy steps:

Theft #1: Registrations gone with the wind.

. . .

Theft #2: Turned Away - the ID game

. . .

Theft #3: Votes Spoiled Rotten

. . . continues at link

Palast has done some great reporting before but I think thus far, it appears there hasn't been a nation-wide conspiracy to steal the election. I don't just say that because of the Dem gains.

local voting story

Postby sugarmead » Wed Nov 08, 2006 10:54 am

I live in a town in Southwest Missouri where voter turn out was much higher than expected. At one point last night a number of polling stations ran out of ballots and photocopies had to be made. Oddly enough the copied ballots at one polling station that I know of were made off a ballot that had already been completed and no one was able to determine for certain how many of those ballots were used before the error was identified.
