Election Day is two weeks away, but the battle for Florida has already started:
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – With memories of 2000 and the state’s bitter fight over ballots still fresh, Floridians began casting votes Monday and within an hour problems cropped up.
In Palm Beach County, the center of the madness during the recount four years ago, a Democratic state legislator said she wasn’t given a complete absentee ballot when she asked to opt for paper instead of the electronic touch-screen machines. And in Orange County, the touch-screen system briefly crashed, paralyzing voting in Orlando and its immediate suburbs. …
In Miami-Dade County, about 150 people gathered Monday morning for a rally led by the Rev. Al Sharpton and former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno. Some people were carrying homemade signs that said “Early Voting Counts” and “Every Vote Matters.”
As Matt Drudge disclosed last week, Democrats are already instructing campaign workers around the country to cry “Foul!”, even when there’s no evidence of vote fraud.
Sigh. This is going to get very ugly before it’s all over.
