...Other Irregularities Place Validity of 2004 Election in Question~Interview with Ronnie Dugger, co-founder of the Alliance for Democracy, conducted by Between the Lines' Scott Harris
Inability to Recount Electronic Ballots, and Other Irregularities Place Validity of 2004 Election in Question
Interview with Ronnie Dugger, co-founder of the Alliance for Democracy, conducted by Scott Harris
While the U.S. media has focused much attention on street demonstrations in Kiev where thousands are protesting what they believe to be a stolen election in the nation of Ukraine, the press corps here at home largely continues to ignore disturbing questions about the validity of America's recent presidential election.
Although Democratic Party candidate Senator John Kerry conceded to President Bush the day after the Nov. 2 election, political parties and citizens groups are demanding an investigation into voting irregularities around the country and a recount in the state of Ohio. The Green and Libertarian parties recently succeeded in raising the required funds to file for a recount in Ohio, where the unofficial margin of victory for Bush was 136,000 votes.
Questions about the veracity of the election results revolve around major discrepancies between exit polling and the final tallies in many states; a GOP-initiated voter suppression campaign; and the lack of an adequate number of voting machines in some key Democratic districts causing extraordinarily long lines. Also under scrutiny in Ohio are the tens of thousands of uncounted spoiled and provisional ballots and the inability to re-count electronic votes where totals are susceptible to manipulation. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Ronnie Dugger, co-founder of the Alliance for Democracy who as far back as 1988 warned against the dangers of computerized voting. Here, Dugger discusses the ongoing investigation into irregularities in the 2004 election and what's at stake for the nation's democracy.
