  •  OT: Pressing question (none)
    I have just gone through most of today's diaries, and I have a pressing question that perhaps someone here could answer:

    Did Ohio Democrats send an alternate slate of electoral votes to the electoral college?

    Thanks in advance to any Kossack who can answer this question.

    •  No. (none)
      Doesn't mean it can't be done later, though, if a recount went to Kerry or fraud was proven.
      •  My understanding was that electors (none)
        sent their votes to the electoral college today, and that Blackwell stalled certification of the Ohio results as long as possible in able to insure that the recount wouldn't occur until Ohio's electoral votes were in the bag.

        I am surprised that Ohio Dems didn't send a competing slate to the electoral college in the event that the recount overturns Blackwell's "certified" results.

        I would love to be proven wrong, but I think today was our last chance to truly contest Ohio's electoral votes.  I believe Hawaii sent competing slates to the EC in 1960.

        •  I think you are correct except (none)
          for the possibility that a strong argument could be made for replacement of electors chosen as a result of fraud.  I'm out of my element here but I have wondered about the issue you raise.
