Of stolen elections and Equal Opportunity

This stolen election stuff isn't so funny when it bites the Kennedy's in the ass, is it, Bobby, Jr.?

William Marcy "Boss" Tweed
Billed New York City $13,000,000 for a new courthouse which actually only cost $250,000.

From 1860–1870, Tweed controlled almost every single United States Democratic Party nomination for the city of New York and the state of New York.

When challenged by The New York Times, Tweed responded, ""What are you going to do about it?"
Lyndon Baines Johnson
In the 1948 Texas Senate Democratic primary, one week after Lyndon Johnson's opponent, former governor Coke Stevenson, had been declared the winner, election officials in the Mexican-American town of Alice reveal a mysterious missing ballot box, labeled "Box 13", which holds 203 uncounted votes. 202 of them were for Lyndon Johnson.

The same day, election officials in Duval County reveal 404 votes which had not been counted. All 404 were for Johnson and had been cast in alphabetical order. Johnson defeats Stevenson by 87 votes.

"I want real loyalty. I want someone who will kiss my ass in Macy's window, and say it smells like roses." Lyndon Johnson
Richard J. Daley
"Once an election has been stolen in Cook County, it stays stolen." The Chicago Tribune

"I love Cook County. In Cook County, your vote really counts . . . and counts . . . and counts." Dick Gregory, left-wing socialist comedian
Katherine Harris
"We now hear about hanging, swinging, tri, pregnant, dimpled, pimpled, and expectant chad." Jackie Mason, Jew
Kenneth Blackwell
"Do I think the election was stolen? No more than usual. The Democrats are getting worse at it and the Republicans better. Back in 1960, it was the other way round." Alexander Cockburn of Counterpunch
