In Violation of Federal Law, Ohio's 2004 Voter Records Are Destroyed Or Missing

At Alternet, via Metafilter.

Um...I had concluded that the dust-up about Ohio was much ado about nothing...until now. Apparently the law feels the same way: according to Cliff Arnebeck, and Ohio attorney involved in the case: "
...the rule of law says that when evidence is destroyed it creates a presumption that the people who destroyed evidence did so because it would have proved the contention of the other side."

It's really amazing and saddening, and speaks to the state of professional journalism, that this isn't ALL OVER every single news channel.

I, like you, paid little heed to those who claimed the election was stolen, etc., but the more I hear about it, the more ridiculous it gets, and this is yet another aspect of it.

Bush really is the president that sat back with his cronies years ago, watching politics and going "I bet if we did x, no one would ever even think we did it" and "I bet if we did y, no one would even investigate it"

His actions are so absurdly illegal and obviously so that people don't believe it could be true. It's somewhat like your claim that if you do a LOT of illegal things, you're more likely to get away with them than if you do only a few. In this case, if you make every illegal thing you do align with typical conspiracy theories that come from psychotic cab drivers, no one will believe that it's true.
