Broken Voting

Now, 6 years after the 2000 election, we still don’t have a reliable method in place for voting.  Diebold?  No thank you.  I can’t support any company whose CEO is clearly partisan.  IF there was ever a job that you would want someone who was at least outwardly neutral it would be a CEO of a voting machine manufacturer. 

Yet another Republican in trouble for sexual misdeeds

From RS:

A Republican Congressman’s office is being sued for sexual harassment, according to Roll Call.

“Rep. Rodney Alexander (R-La.), already enmeshed in the ex-Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) page scandal, now faces a new controversy as a former staffer has sued his office for sexual harassment,” John Bresnahan reports.

Excerpts from Roll Call article:

Elizabeth Scott, Alexander’s former scheduler, claims that Royal Alexander, the Congressman’s chief of staff, “engaged in a course of misconduct” that included “inappropriate sex-based comments, ogling and touching” and “sexual advances,” according to Michael Hoare, Scott’s attorney. Scott told the Congressman of his aide’s alleged improper behavior but the Louisiana Republican took no action to correct the situation, Hoare said. more


I’m sure that this is going to be blamed on the Dems also.
