The Democratic National Commitee is finally supporting the growing movement for a recount of the Busby/Bilbray election in San Diego to determine a successor for disgraced Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham. It can be said that the DNC move is better late than never. The integrity of US elections should be THE issue for 2006 but most Democrats have been conspicuously silent on this issue even after obvious voting irregularities in the 2000 and 2004 presidential contests. Organizations like The Election Defense Alliance and Velvet Underground have vigorously championed a recount because of voting machine "sleepovers" with pollworkers. This casts serious doubt on how city election official Michael Haas could declare Bilbray the winner. The voting machines have been found to be quite easy to tamper with. According to Haas the cost of a recount would be $150,000 or a dollar a vote. A hand re-count of the vote in neighboring Orange County would only cost 14 cents a vote. What accounts for this tremendous difference? For more information on this topic contact: www.velvetrevolution.us, and the July 18th Brad's Post.
