Olbermann & Harris

Something weird is going on between Keith Olbermann, who is the only network journalist who is seriously covering the vote fraud situation, and Bev Harris, the most thorough and dedicated investigator of such fraud.

Harris has always struck me as completely with it, straightforward, sane. Olbermann (on the basis of what his staff has said about Harris) is writing her off as a freak.

Olbermann’s summary of the situation.

Harris’s summary of the situation.

Make of it what you will. I’m glad Olbermann is on the case, and I’m glad Harris is on the case, and I hope that they can help each other somehow.

BTW, check out Harris’s reaction to some people’s demands for voting reforms, and see if this squares with the idea of a screaming psycho activist:

  1. We’re not done yet.

  2. This is not the only election.

  3. The 2004 election was never audited. No one really knows whether it was accurate or not. No one really knows whether:

a. There was no fraud
b. There was a little fraud but it didn’t change the outcome
c. There was a lot of fraud and the wrong people were put in office

  1. It’s still about auditing.

a. To do an audit, you start with spot checks.
b. To do spot checks, you start with documents. Those are what Black Box Voting requested on Nov. 2, from 3,000 election jurisdictions. They are coming in now. Some locations are more cooperative than others.
c. If we do not audit, we will be asking the same questions over and over

  1. It’s time to get some answers. That’s what we are doing aT Black Box Voting.

  2. It is premature to recommend specific legislation. Though several voting integrity groups and so-called “experts” are trying to do that right now, no one really knows what the problems are yet. Before reinventing the wheel (again) we should finish some of the audits and investigations that need to be done.

She’s a lot more measured in her rhetoric than a lot of bloggers out there [blush]. She’s just all about getting the facts, as far as I can tell. I wonder what the heck really happened between her and Olbermann’s staff and why it turned out the way it did.

  1. Hey, Ed, when are you going to comment on the move for secession in some of the blue states?

    I read “Ecotopia” years ago, a book about Oregon, Washington and California breaking away from the
    union and becoming an ecological paradise. Can’t get the thought out of my mind.

  2. I don’t know, man. I thought the whole concept of “ecology” was that you couldn’t save the environment in pieces, cause it was all connected?
