To answer Peters question in part, I believe what happened in South Dakota was that, after election day, the national Senate Republicans lacked the stomach to make a big deal of the narrow margin and allegations of fraud - sort of a hangover from 2000. The state party probably felt otherwise, and has beeen gathering evidence. We havent heard much, perhaps because the state party hasnt seen it in their interest to tell the world what was going on.
Now, dear Jaffaphiles who read this blog, I have a question -- should Trent Lott resign as Senate Leader, if not for the above then given his incredibly stupid (and vile) comments about Strom Thurmonds 1948 candidacy? If not, why not?
