Facts for Lampley: Byron York has apparently silenced the new leader of the tin-foil hat brigade, sportscaster Jim Lampley with this fact-filled repudation of the Ohio conspiracy theory.
I particularly liked this little tidbit from the Ohio "lawsuits."
Another one of the witnesses was the author of the now-withdrawn lawsuits challenging the Ohio results. Lacking evidence that anyone tampered with the results, the suit attempted to prove that "the confederate of defendants-contestees Bush, Cheney and Rove who was actually changing the vote totals did not need physical access to a computer" in order to doctor the electronic voting results. Just exactly how that happened was never clear. The lawsuit also charged that White House chief of staff Andrew Card furthered the conspiracy by...claiming victory.
Who knew that Karl Rove had psychic-computer powers?
