Palast: Kerry Won

Greg Palast is at it again – though this time I’m not sure what actual tangible evidence he’s going to have – though maybe the Blackbox Voting FOIAs will help uncover stuff. Drawing on exit poll data that clearly mismatched the outcome in Ohio he draws some pretty strong conclusions (but takes exit polls as infallible):

Typically in the United States, about 3 percent of the vote is voided, just thrown away, not recorded. When the bobble-head boobs on the tube tell you Ohio or any state was won by 51 percent to 49 percent, don’t you believe it … it has never happened in the United States, because the total never reaches a neat 100 percent. The television totals simply subtract out the spoiled vote.

Read the whole thing to get his gist.
