There is something odd here.
Even though I'm solidly in the vote for Tammy Adkins for Supreme Court/Anybody but another handpicked freakin' republican camp until after next Tuesday I have to agree with Garland that the general election results in that race are a bit bizarre. I'm also miffed that the great god Diebold picked that race to meddle in when it would have been much more fun to have skewed the Insurance Commissioners race instead. I could have used 500,000 votes to much better effect than they'll get used here.
The bottom line is that us Georgians have no way of ever knowing what happened as long as the state continues the use of our Diebold voting equipment. The office of the SecState squashing a freedom of information request on security grounds is simply astonishing. It's an open admission that the machines can be manipulated, which you can learn more about here and here and at a bazillion other sites on the good old world wide web.
Still and all, it's a good story that should interest the citizenry. Here's Garland Favorito's press release:
