A Democrat's idea of democratic elections

Jeremy Scahill in Rebel Reports reports on election tampering and bribery in the 2004 presidential election.

As chair of the Democratic National Committee during the 2004 election, Terry McAuliffe engaged in actions that reveal exactly how the Democratic Party establishment views the “democratic electoral process.”

According to a new book by Theresa Amato, independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader’s campaign manager in 2000 and 2004, McAuliffe attempted to essentially bribe the Nader campaign to stand down in key states. In Grand Illusion: The Myth of Voter Choice in a Two-Party Tyranny, Amato charges “the DNC and its state party affiliates embarked on an effort, unprecedented in U.S. history, to force Nader out of the 2004 presidential election...”
