  •  But in 2004 we could not properly investigate (0+ / 0-)

    We really do not know how much fraud was really committed in that election.  The Governor was a Republican, the Secretary of State was a Republican, the Attorney General was a Republican.  And, of course, all 3 branches of the Federal Government were Republican controlled.  There was no way to mount a credible investigation, though John Connors tried.

    And, as I recall, the convictions for the 2004 election were concerning the recounts.  Now, it seems to me that the only reason you would commit fraud during a recount is if you knew that the recount would change the outcome.  And you would only know that if you knew that there was fraud committed in the election itself. No?

    I think we have every reason to be very, very suspicious in this issue.

    Now, I will say that I am somewhat reassured by the fact that the DOJ is in Democratic hands and the Senate is in Democratic hands.  And I think that and only that would tend to restrain them. (Well, that and the fact that it is possible Obama may not actually need Ohio to win).  But, I think that is really naive to believe that they do not have the willingness and the ability to commit election fraud again if the payoff is large enough.
