There is some excellent political writing to be found if you look outside the corporate media

I was checking out the other Illinois political blogs and came across
this fine piece of writing by Ellen Beth Gill in Ellen's Illinois Tenth Congression District Blog
Friday evening, the Illinois Ballot Integrity Project and the Moraine Township Democrats sponsored a discussion with Mark Crispin Miller author of Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election and Why They'll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them). The discussion centered around the issues of vote supression and ballot integrity.

Those are some great links. We need to return to punch card ballots!

What is old tricky Rock Island County Richard 'Dick' Leibovitz the County Clerk doing? What the rest of the sheep in the County clerks assoication tell him to do?

Professor Goldblatt,
Thank you for your comment.
In Rock Island County we mark paper ballots which we then feed into optical scanners so that the vote totals can be reported quickly but the paper ballots can, presumably, still be used for a manual recount. What is the rest of Illinois doing?

(My goodness! I must be doing something right. I seem to be attracting a better class of readers and commenters.)
