    ... but in my non-legal opinion, disenfranchising a majority of the nation's voters by stealing a presidential election is voter suppression too, of a scale I don't recall seeing in this country in its history.

      First, I looked into the Florida situation at the time. Whether Gore would have won depended on the standard used to judge ballots.  In some, but not all, of the standards, Gore would have won.

      Second, I would expect someone like Ginsberg to pursue a particular legal avenue to benefit the Republicans.  After all, he is on that side.

      That makes him partisan but not necessarily evil or dishonest.

      I am not saying that he should be on the commission, just that him fighting to win Florida does not rule him out from my perspective.

      Of course, there may be other dirt on him

        Folks here seem to want an imaginary Republican who never represented a "bad" Republican or conservative cause, which they'd label as "anyone but Jon Huntsman."

          I hope the difference between us and Republicans, is that we are careful to look at the evidence.

          I see little tactical advantage in the Democratic party becoming as sloppy in evaluating the evidence as Glenn Beck.

          If we do not want Glenn Beck accusing Soros without cause, we should set the example in our analysis of Ginsberg.

          I recommend the episode "A Man Alone" of Deep Space Nine
