    While a statistical analysis strongly suggest foul play, what cannot be proven, to the extent that the election could be reversed, is that the result - Bush winning Ohio - was in error.

    This frame works against us. To the unititiated outsider, this entire argument sounds like the desired result is to remove Bush, and install John Kerry. It's just not going to happen.

    The evidence for voting irregularities prosecutions may be solid enough for a criminal conviction. It IS solid enough to allow our side to use it, but it's dangerous, as the phrase "stolen election" doesn't play well outside our own group of the already-converted.

    •  fear of "not playing well" (4.00)
      aint that what led the senate to avoid passing anti-lynching legislation in the bad old days, for which sin they recently apologized, I think.

      the hour of bombast is upon us

      "election reform" and "audit" IMO.

      But you don't need a frame to press charges against Blackwell.

        All you need is a prosecutor willing to file charges and who has proper standing (i.e., in correct jurisdiction). Sadly, I'm not sure we have that ... maybe somebody who knows their way around Ohio (politics for the prosecutors' officeholders; election law details) can enhance our understanding of the chance?
