Speaking as a member of the BoD of bbv.org and somebody who helped Bev
Harris plan the whole PRA/FOIA effort:

1) This was planned LONG before we knew who was going to win the "top of
ticket" race. By months.

2) The records requests started going in the mail around 5:00pm on
election day. Kerry was still ahead at that point!

3) We're checking the MACHINES. This is not a "Kerry WON, dammit!"
effort. If you think I'm kidding about that, you oughta see the "Bush
04" bumper stickers slapped either side of my motorcycle helmet!!!
(That's right, guys, I'm a *Republican*. And a member of the Republican
Liberty Caucus, which is the "Libertarian infiltrators registered GOP
wing", also known as "Ron Paul Republicans".)

There are four principles of reform for electronic voting that Bev and
myself fully support. I've outlined them at
http://www.equalccw.com/fix.html

Upshot: I think you'll find the BBV FOIA/PRA request project to be a
worthy thing to talk about for any open source proponent org.
