  •  Lawsuit Should Commence Immediately (10+ / 0-)

    asking for a court to order the machine be impounded to prevent any tampering.

    Then they ought to bring in a computer forensics team to sort through how the numbers came to be.

    Such a significant jump, immediately corrected as a totalling error, was present in the Franken Senate election.

    Here, where no such correction is forthcoming, where the source of the change is someone already had questions raised, action to ensure accuracy and accountability should take place immediately.

    We'd rather dream the American Dream than fight to live it or to give it to our kids. What a shame. What an awful, awful shame.

    •  A lot more than just a cursory forensics (3+ / 0-)

      investigation is needed.
       This calls for a very specialized, deep examination involving all the machines and the network.
      First, who is responsible for such things (hint- most likely Walkerites), two, do they even have the skills necessary for this?

    •  If the roles were reversed, what would the GOP do? (3+ / 0-)

      They would demand that all the ballots be tossed out! Who can trust them?

      Fight this as hard as the Republicans fought Florida in 2000! DO NOT LET THEM BULLDOZE US AGAIN!

      Democracy *means* Anti-Plutocracy. Democrats, be true to your Self and win!

      •  Priority #1: War for Public Opinion (2+ / 0-)
        Recommended by:
        VictorLaszlo, Matt Z

        Priority #2: Wage No Holds Barred Spare No Expense Battle to Win Recount.  

        Priority #3:  Send Election to be Decided by Supreme Court.  

        Result:  President George W. Bush (2 terms of).

        Alternate Priority #3:  If convinced you'll lose, delay final resolution for months by seemingly fruitless appeals that deny the seat to the other party.

        Result:  Delayed seating of Franken as US Senator with associated impact on Dem majority.  

        Unless we play to win, we're going to keep on losing.

        We'd rather dream the American Dream than fight to live it or to give it to our kids. What a shame. What an awful, awful shame.
