How To Cancel An Election
Had I not been making comments about Bush wanting to keep his job at all costs and that he might being willing to find a reason - any reason - to cancel the elections, I found this interesting and a wee bit scary. I guess you have to be prepared but just knowing that someone is investigating what to do about 'elections' if we have a terrorist attack just feeds into my distrust of this administration.
"Look at the possibilities. If the federal government were to cancel an election or suspend an election, it has tremendous political implications. If the federal government chose not to suspend an election it has political implications," said Soaries, a Republican and former secretary of state of New Jersey.
"Who makes the call, under what circumstances is the call made, what are the constitutional implications?" he said. "I think we have to err on the side of transparency to protect the voting rights of the country."
Soaries said his bipartisan, four-member commission might make a recommendation to Congress about setting up guidelines.
