Hack the Vote

I don't know how legit this is... seems just pure conjecture at this point, optically scanned ballot counters hacked in Florida. As someone who had his fair share of statistics in college, I'd like a reasonable explanation for this:
While the heavily scrutinized touch-screen voting machines seemed to produce results in which the registered Democrat/Republican ratios largely matched the Kerry/Bush vote, in Florida's counties using results from optically scanned paper ballots - fed into a central tabulator PC and thus vulnerable to hacking – the results seem to contain substantial anomalies.

In Baker County, for example, with 12,887 registered voters, 69.3% of them Democrats and 24.3% of them Republicans, the vote was only 2,180 for Kerry and 7,738 for Bush, the opposite of what is seen everywhere else in the country where registered Democrats largely voted for Kerry.

Supposedly the FBI has been called in to investigate this - wonder how bad Asscrack wants to hold onto his job - but if there was a chew toy ripe to throw to the good puppy media, I think this would be one.

And be LOUD about it.
