Was Ohio stolen from Kerry?





Mother Jones has published a long analysis by Mark Hertsgaard of the 2004 presidential election. Hertsgaard, a well-known liberal investigative reporter, concludes that the 2004 election was not stolen from John Kerry. His article debunks the work of Bob Fitrakis, Harvey Wasserman, and Steve Rosenfeld, authors of Did George W. Bush Steal America’s 2004 Election? and Mark Crispin Miller, author of Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election & Why They’ll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them).

However, he concedes that Ohio Secretary of State Blackwell did try to hamper election turnout by requiring the use of 80 pound stock paper for voter registration (he later backed down). And "46,000 provisional ballots went uncounted," he notes. (Another 92,000 ballots were rejected after voting machines reported they were unreadable.)
