Berkeley Researchers Report "Unexplained Discrepancy" in FLA Vote Totals

Study released Thursday indicates the probability is that electronic voting machines may have awarded 130,000 - 260,000 or more in excess votes to Bush in Florida

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

BuzzFlash was a telephone media participant in a 10 AM (Pacific Time), November 18th, news conference conducted by the Survey Research Center [link to www.prnewswire.com] of the University of California at Berkeley. This is our report.

A research team at UC Berkeley reported Thursday morning that irregularities associated with electronic voting machines may have awarded 130,000 - 260,000 or more in excess votes to President George W. Bush in Florida in the 2004 presidential election. The study showed an unexplained discrepancy between votes for President Bush in counties where electronic voting machines were used versus counties using traditional voting methods.

Discrepancies this large or larger rarely arise by chance -- the probability is less than 0.1 percent. The research team, led by Sociology Professor Michael Hout, formally disclosed the results of the study at a press conference and called for an immediate investigation by Florida officials.

“The three counties where the voting anomalies were most prevalent were also the most heavily Democratic counties, not the [conservative] Dixiecrat counties you’ve all heard about before, but the more heavily Democratic counties that used e-vote technology, including Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties in order of magnitude,” said Professor Hout.

The statistical patterns in counties that did not have e-touch voting machines predicted a 28,000 vote decrease in President Bush’s share of the 2004 vote in Broward County, but the machines actually tallied an increase of 51,000 votes for a net gain of 81,000 votes for the President.

With the research team’s statistical model, it was expected that President Bush should have lost 8,900 votes in Palm Beach County but instead he gained 41,000, a difference of 49,900 votes.

And President Bush should have gained only 18,000 votes in Miami-Dade County but in fact gained 37,000, for a difference of 19,300 votes.

“ The disparity in favor of the incumbent President Bush cannot be explained away by other factors. The study shows that counties that used electronic voting resulted in disproportionate increases of votes for the President,” said Professor Hout.

Furthermore, statistical adjustments for the size of the counties, the number of votes cast, income, ethnicity and other factors, do not explain or account for the discrepancy why the President received so many votes in heavily democratic counties that used electronic voting.

Hout made this appeal: “For the sake of all future elections involving electronic voting, someone needs to explain the statistical anomalies that we found in Florida. We’re calling on officials in Florida to take up this task and to take action now.”

You are right MT. But the republicans view this as a sporting event. You don´t care if the umpire makes a bad call - as long as you team wins.

In the end - we all lose on this one....

Right On! AC

Berkeley has pioneered some of our societies most useful tools.

LSD and BSD

Freedom and insight for a strong mind, and a computer operating system that is copied by many, and free for all.

Dey preeefer their ministers readin´ to ´em from the good book of circular arguments (which anyone whose studied religious history or comparative religion knows is pure bullshit for the masses of asses) convincin´ ´em that their contrived Jeebus, jes´ like the Easter Bunny & Sanny Claus bees´ real. Hail, Dubya´! They REALLY do deserve Bush, at least in the Red States. This REALLY is the land of the apes. I personally do hope some super power decides to level this place soon for the sake of the rest of humanity.- e.s.

The pattern of lies and denial continues.

Mr. Bush and his sponsors have so far skated ahead of the cracking ice left by their passage.

At some point, in the near future, the spreading cracks will catch up with them, and they will drown in the ice-cold lake of America´s hatred for them and all they stand for.

Election Fraud 2000

California/Enron energy crisis.

Staging 9/11 as a pretext for war.

Failed wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Massacre of Fallujah.

Election Fraud 2004

Devaluation of the dollar by 40% since taking office.

Loss of millions of jobs to outsourcing.

Tax breaks for the rich, at the expense of the children of the dwindling middle class.

The hits keep happenin´, and the stonewalling continues. No mistake has ever been admitted. When this regime goes down, it´s gonna land hard.

There are a lot of very turned-on very bright people in and around UC Berkeley.

It was not "loonies" who had the expertise, resources, and access-to-data demonstrated in the report.

I used to say it started around the early seventies, but I think that was simply a step along the way.

The oil people clearly gained control around the time of Kennedy´s death in the early sixties.

If you think about it though, you could take it back easily to the turn of the century industrialists.

Obviously you all have never lived there. I have and can tell you that Berkeley is one weird ass place. The City Council is totally loonie like I said earlier.

Here is an excellent article from San Fran that pretty much describes how warped their sense of thinking is.

They are out of money yet freeze homeless peoples stuff, the city workers pick up off the streets.

------------------------------------------------
Berkeley tolerates its homeless people, and takes good care of their stuff when they abandon it in shopping carts.

Not only does the city pack carts and other belongings into a huge container in case folks want it back -- it also deep-freezes them for as long as 90 days.

About a year ago, Berkeley bought a 40-foot-long, 8-foot-wide refrigerated container for $8,200 after public works officials complained about vermin infesting carts stored at the city´s outdoor corporation yard.

The city signed a five-year, $61,500 lease with Caltrans for land under the University Avenue overpass at Interstate 80 to put the container on, and ran power to the unit.

Deputy City Attorney Matthew Orebic said the city is heeding state law that requires storage of lost goods. He said it is not clear, however, that that law applies to unattended shopping carts because they may not be lost.

"We just do that to be safe and fair, to make sure that there´s no argument that we´ve violated any laws and to be fair to the person,´´ Orebic said. "What if you´ve got your medication in there?´´

San Francisco and UC Berkeley also store homeless people´s belongings as a result of lawsuits filed by homeless advocates, but they don´t freeze them.

Critics say Berkeley´s freezer program is an example of good intentions run amok. The city, which faces a $7.5 million deficit, should treat abandoned shopping carts as stolen property instead of worrying so much about the contents, they say.
