Something to Do

Democratic members of Congress have requested that the GAO undertake an immediate investigation of "the efficacy of voting machines and new technologies used in the 2004 election, how election officials responded to difficulties they encountered and what we can do in the future to improve our election systems and administration."

They aren't saying the election was stolen --- but that the ambiguity presented by the technology in play stains the credibility of the fairness of the election, and that this must be remedied for the good of democracy in America, and in particular, to retain the populace's faith in it.
