Re: “Election Machines Can Bump Dean's Name to Second Page of Ballot

Also, their explanation does not make any sense. The normal print ballot has two columns. Lee on the top of the left one, Dean on the top of the right one. There is no scenario where Dean would have ended up at the bottom of a page. The way it is on the large print ballot, they put the right column below the left column so Dean is half way down the second page below the write-in option. Heres what should have happened: The left hand column should have had Lee, then below him Dean. Then all the independents should begin below that and continue on to the second column on the normal print ballot. Then the large print ballot would have Lee, Dean, all the independents and then the write in option at the bottom of the second page. This explanation they gave does not make sense. Also who decided this was the best format? The republican-controlled election commission? Hmmm.

Re: “Looking Ahead: The Electoral Picture

It's Julie Byrd Ashworth (not Ashcroft) and David Lenoir (not Lanier).

Re: “Two Takes

Senator Corker WAS asked about Syria and North Korea...immediately after this "town hall" ended. If his "unbelievable" remark was in some way meant to lambast the audience for not asking the "right questions" or for not asking about Syria and N Korea, not only is that rude, but completely false. Here's the video of him being asked these questions very directly by an informed constituent.

Also, he may be on the Foreign Relations Committee, but that's HARDLY the ONLY set of issues he votes on. Pretending that his constituents are somehow mislead or ignorant because people were upset about the full spectrum of issues he votes on is misleading, at best. Our elected officials DO NOT have the authority or even the moral/ethical right to define or determine what issues their constituents are concerned about. His office said 99% of the calls they got on DeVos were against her and yet he voted for her anyway. Local media needs to hold him accountable on his disdain for his constituents and their concerns.
