    If it wouldn't have leaked, this would have happened:

    BY PARTY

    # Democrats: 28,025

    # Republicans: 9,521

    # Independents: 1,038


    Anyone else think something stinks?

    Is it too late to put Gore in the White House and kick out Bushy-boy? :D

    I'm thinking this was also the case in 2000?

    Yeah seems like the French, Chinese, Terrorists, and now the Criminals all want Democrats to win. :p

    This is a good reason to scrap their plans for purging the voter base. Best bet is to forget about the old errors and let them stand. Create new regulations that everytime somebody is convicted of a crime, one of the multitudes of forms that get filled out is one that gets sent to voter registration, to remove that felon from being able to vote. Of course the only way to prevent an ex-con from registering to vote is if we required a waiting period with full criminal background checks for registration.
