‘We Will Not Faint’ (UPDATED)
If you still think Ohio is important, Newsweek has a "WEB EXCLUSIVE interview with Jesse Jackson: As bloggers continue to spin conspiracy theories about a victory stolen from Democratic candidate John Kerry, the Rev. Jesse Jackson plans to lead a Monday rally in Columbus to protest alleged voting irregularities. He warmed up with NEWSWEEK’s Susannah Meadows." Here's my favorite blurb: "All we want is a fair count and a transparent election. We can live with the result. We’re fighting the odds but we will not faint in the face of the odds." Update: Two new ones from the Columbus Free Press: "The 2004 Presidential Election: Who Won The Popular Vote? An Examination of the Comparative Validity of Exit Poll and Vote Count Data" and "Ohio's official non-recount ends amidst new evidence of fraud, theft and judicial contempt mirrored in New Mexico." Update: For some reason, I can't find this one anywhere in the US press, but the UK Guardian has this new AP story: "Candidates Want Second Ohio Recount." True Confession: I just found the first three graphs of the AP story linked above in the "Briefs" section of today's P-I, on page 3. They do have the full story online. Google, you let me down today.
