How To Steal an Election

It's easier to rig an electronic voting machine than a Las Vegas slot
machine, says University of Pennsylvania visiting professor Steve
Freeman. That's because Vegas slots are better monitored and
regulated than America's voting machines, Freeman writes in a book
out in July that argues, among other things, that President Bush may
owe his 2004 win to an unfair vote count. We'll wait to read his book
before making a judgment about that. But Freeman has assembled
comparisons that suggest Americans protect their vices more than they
guard their rights, according to data he presented at an October
meeting of the American Statistical Association in Philadelphia.
