If you want to believe that Karl Rove has not been corrupting American elections, you will enjoy this book

Robert Kennedy, Jr. in June 2006 wrote an excellent article describing the grand theft of the 2004 Presidential election. His conclusions in this regard were based, first, upon the expert advice he received from Lou Harris, the pollster for his dad and uncle in their political campaigns. Lou Harris actually looked at the facts in the Ohio 2004 Presidential election. On that advice, so did Bobby Kennedy. Kennedy examined the dramatic exit poll discrepancies, the dramatic anomalies in which, according to Ken Blackwell's certified results, both Democrats and proponents of gay marriage in large numbers (more than the reported margin of Bush's victory) voted for George W. Bush rather than John Kerry.
Kennedy's well researched and documented conclusion that the 2004 Presidential election was stolen preceded the discovery that the Republican computer serving apparatus in Chattanooga, TN, SmarTech, was interconnected with the Ohio Secretary of State's entire election operation in the 2004 election. It also preceded the discovery of the illegal destruction of some 1.5 million ballots from the 2004 Ohio election.
Rick Hasen dismisses Bobby Kennedy's work on the basis of a superficial criticism from an unqualified critic. Thus, Hasen's "Voting Wars" misses Karl Rove's real war on democracy through corrupt funding, voter suppression and large scale vote count rigging. According to Hasen, Karl Rove's grand thefts of elections are outside the margin of reasonable litigation and are the stuff of wild conspiracy theorists.
The book contains good material on the fraudulent attack upon Democratic voter fraud, which is why I did not give it a one-star rating.
