Creatures of habit do the same thing over and over. GWB was installed in 2000 by not counting all the ballots in Florida. Then it was a multi-sided kerfuffle that resulted from careless administration of elections goind back to the ’70s. The irony is that in the ’80s, Georgia was at the forefront of electoral reform to insure more accurate tallies.
Indeed, the “macjines” with the hanging chads were introduced in Georgia. That they malfunctioned in Florida was a result of poor maintenance and an increase in the voting population that was unexpected. Stone and Manafort knew all of this because they had been involved in elections since Nixon.
