Angry Kerry Supporters Seek Ohio Reform

Yes the news is mostly bad for the Bush administration: Libby's indictment, Rove's unethical role in outing a CIA agent, misleading allegations in the run up to war, and now an ultra right-wing nomination to the Supreme Court, but this only goes to show how important our right to vote really is.

Still angry a year later, John Kerry supporters across the country are donating money to an effort to overhaul elections in the state they blame for costing them the White House.

A New Mexico retiree who became incensed after reading last fall about pre-election directives by Ohio's secretary of state gave $100. A substance-abuse counselor in Maine who suspects Ohio-made electronic voting machines were tampered with to give President Bush the victory contributed $25.

"There were so many questions and allegations about voter fraud, vote machine tampering, that it really frightened me," said Elizabeth Schrader, 50, of Old Hickory, Tenn. "Serious voter reform is necessary in all 50 states."
