moveon's election results scorecard

Homework is keeping me pretty busy but I wanted to post this (mostly) good news about election results across the US yesterday. The big disappointment has to be the outcome in the outcome Ohio's Election Reform Amendments. Actually that's a whole lot more than a disappointment. It's downright disturbing ~ somehow I'm not at all surprised to learn this, as reported by MoveON:

Some voters reportedly were confused by the complex ballot language needed to make those changes, and there were problems with some Diebold electronic voting machines. In the end, Reform Ohio Now was outspent and outadvertised by their opponents, backed by the state GOP and funded by huge contributions like the $500,000 from billionaire Carl Lindner, while many Democratic officials remained silent.

The big losers in that one: Ohio voters ~ and democracy.
