Serious problems with vote rigging in Alaska in 2004 (which favored Republicans) were never resolved. This time around the fix is in and puts the smell of rotten fish to shame.

Four years ago, 313,592 out of 474,740 registered voters in Alaska participated in the election-a 66% turnout. Taking into account 49,000 outstanding ballots, on Tuesday 272,633 out of 495,731 registered Alaskans showed up at the polls; a turnout of 54.9%.

Republican computer expert Mike Connell, who has been implicated as being at the center of vote fraud in Florida in 2000 and in Ohio in 2004, has been ordered by an Ohio judge to appear for a deposition on Monday, the day before the election!
This takes out one of the GOP’s most important players – at the most crucial time imaginable!
