Daily Voting News For December 23, 2007


Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

Colorado Secretary of State Coffman continues to step as far away from state law as he possibly can. Rather than protect the voters it seems that Coffman wants to do everything possible to cut corners and ignore the facts in order for counties to use the machines he just decertified. Now Coffman is allowing Mesa Co to do their own certification testing to see if they can figure out a way to make their ES&S iVotronics work. “Even if Omaha, Neb.-based ES&S couldn’t get the systems to work for the certification, county officials likely can, Coffman said.” He wants to allow the counties to do their own testing and then go to the legislature and have them approve what has been done by the counties. Does anyone smell another law suit?...

    Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

    It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>
