COUP WATCH: Nov. 12 Florida Recount -- Other States, Too? -- From Red Rock Eater

Sunday, Nov. 12: The press reports that if the Bush campaign fails in its attempt to suppress the hand recounts of voters' ballots that are provided by Florida law, as seems likely, then they will implement a "scorched-earth" plan involving legal challenges to the election outcomes in Iowa, New Mexico, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

Florida Recount -- From Red Rock Eater News Service Florida Recount -- Other States, Too? -- From Red Rock Eater News Service

From - Sun Nov 12 08:18:13 2000

The press reports that if the Bush campaign fails in its attempt to suppress the hand recounts of voters' ballots that are provided by Florida law, as seems likely, then they will implement a "scorched- earth" plan involving legal challenges to the election outcomes in Iowa, New Mexico, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

For the Bush plan see:

If the envisioned scorched-earth plan does come to pass then it will be important to monitor the regional newspapers in Iowa, New Mexico, Oregon, and Wisconsin. To that end, some very excellent RRE readers have assembled guides to the regional newspapers and other relevant online resources in those states. I have enclosed them here: two for Iowa, followed by one each for the other states. I have edited and reformatted them, but they are not my work. Nor have I tested the URL's myself. I assume they're fine.

Let me just add that one of my favorite words in the whole English language is "slugfest". It's gotten a lot of exercise this week.


****** IOWA ******

Here are some URL's for Iowa papers:

Des Moines Register
      http://www.DesMoinesRegister.com/

(used to be the independent paper of Iowa -- only local paper in the country to be distributed as the major paper in all counties in the state -- taken over by Gannett in the last decade or so but still has good columnists)

DMR on the potential recount:
      http://www.dmregister.com/news/stories/c4789004/12916675.html

(Johnson County is where Iowa City is located, arguably the most liberal/progressive city in the state, home of the University of Iowa and a century of progressive activism)

More DMR campaign coverage:
      http://miva.dmregister.com/miva/cgi-bin/miva?news/package.mv+Campaign_2000

----- Cedar Rapids Gazette:
      http://www.gazetteonline.com/GCDA/front/

CR is the second largest city in Iowa, fairly conservative

---

Plus, here is a list of URLs for other Iowa papers (on some job search site):
      http://www.jobfactory.com/news/u_ia.htm

Here are the major papers covering Iowa. The Des Moines Register is THE state newspaper, with statewide readership. The Omaha World Herald is widely read in the western third of the state. The remainder are from Iowa's larger cities, with Ames and Iowa City being the homes of the universities.

****** WISCONSIN ******

After wading through info on modest milk price increases and the national slingshot competition, I managed to find some Wisconsin URLs that may interest you. It's probably more exhaustive than discriminating, so you may want to review them to figure out which ones to keep.
