David Swanson On Baker-Carter Voting Commission

The Washington Post has a typically non-informative article today about the James Baker-Jimmy Carter "Commission on Federal Election Reform."

Fortunately, David Swanson was there in person, and has written a long but extremely interesting piece about it. If you have any interest in voting and/or having your vote count, you should read it. And it has pictures!

Via these pictures, we can see there's one thing wrong with the commission right off the bat: it doesn't have enough white people.

And the white people it DOES have are kinda blurry.

That's so you can't pick them out of a line up.

The Bush Administration has more black/colored people than this set up and hey, that don't make a lick's difference...
