Developing Story?

MoveOn.Org is casting about for support in its effort to throw suspicion on the election outcome. An email to its peeps says, "Question are swirling around whether the election was conducted fairly or not." Also, I've heard anecdotal evidence that inside the Kerry family, the legitimacy of the outcome is not entirely believed. MoveOn's email links readers to a Nov. 5 letter from six members of Congress asking the Government Accountability Office to investigate irregularities in Florida (Palm Beach and Broward county), Ohio (Warren county), Nebraska (Sarper county), and North Carolina (Guilford). The letter also directs the comptroller to complaints lodged at a website,

letter to David Walker, Comptroller

Oh, as they say, it's probably nothing. Okay, they only say that when it's about to become something, but so far this seems to be just a little case of sour grapes.

I understand concern about throwing suspicion on the election outcome for partisan purposes. However, I'm curious to know why I don't hear more from conservatives over the need for ensuring accuracy and transparency of new technology voting processes. Aren't accurate vote counts fundamental to a democracy and in every American's interest?

Interesting post, but just one correction. The disputed county in Nebraska is Sarpy, not Sarper.
