Another point in favor of Clint Curtis' story is that the problems with
miscounted votes in Volusia County where he claims they applied his
program, are well-documented in the 2000 election.

In fact, Gore might be President today if not for the miscounted votes in
Volusia which, until they were corrected, caused Bush to seem ahead in the
election at a time when Gore was actually ahead, if the votes had been
accurately reported. The networks called the race for Bush, and Gore
conceded during the time when the Volusia votes were being misreported.
By the time Gore unconceded, many additional un-dated (and questionably
not cast by the deadline) absentee overseas ballots were being added to
Bush's total and Bush got his 500 vote margin of victory.

Without the mysterious still unexplained miscount in the central tabulator
(that was later corrected by re-uploading all the precinct results) in
Volusia in 2000, we might have a different President today.
