More on 2004 Ohio election irregularity

In the Media Jones section of the current issue of Mother Jones magazine Mark Hertsgaard investigates claims of Ohio election fraud cited in the Free Press's election coverage and later the Conyer's report and finds exaggerations and misleading information. Although over all he concludes there was enough suspicious activity to warrant closer scrutiny of the election, he does believe the case for Ohio being "stolen" is not as strong as skeptics such as Mark Crispin Miller make it out to be.

Despite reader commentary on the Hertsgaard's review being largely negative (and overly harsh, in my opinion) I would recommend this read to anyone who is interested in the issue of vote fraud since it moves the debate forward by taking seriously the claims of fraud rather than dismissing them out of hand as most of the mainstream media has done.
