Personally, I think vote tampering, registration tampering, voter intimidation, and other forms of voter suppression should be punishable as Treason, with pardon only possible via 3/5ths vote of the senate, not by presidential whim.

Note that I did try to find links for the other side also doing illegal tampering, as I remember hearing instances of it, but I couldn't find them offhand. Just assume that it's happening on both sides.

Related, apparently I'm not the only one who thinks Karl Rove is helping to undermining democracy.

Actually, the right-wings counter-examples of the left are not comperable. there have been some left-wing registrars working for privately funded groups that have said, 'We won't register you, go to another registar.'. It is tacky and distasteful but it is also legal and quite different from saying 'Sure! We'll register you.' and then tearing up the registration info the moment their back is turned.

you forgot ohioan and convicted fraud ken blackwell.
you thought florida was bad? ohio will not have a real count until after december. even after diebold was forced out of their home state, (they're based in north canton,) blackwell is using the old machines and the new 'provisional ballot' system to screw cuyahoga county, which is traditionally a democratic stronghold. (hello, we've got LTV^WISG^Wwhoeverthefuckitisnow, ford, etcetera.)
and you thought things were bad in afghanistan and belarus.
