Daily Kos :: [UPDATED] The "New" FBI

Daily Kos :: [UPDATED] The "New" FBI: "In 2000, I was extremely troubled over reports of voter intimidation, harassment, and abuse by Florida police on minority voters. Also, of reports of police roadblocks around polling stations in minority communities.

In 2001, thanks to the Lawyer Army, local police were forced to stay in the shadows.

However, federal police were mobilized as thugs and intimidators this time.

Diaries :: Furious Hal's diary ::

Where can I begin? I feel this topic is extremely important, so I hope my writing does not fail me now. I guess starting in the beginning may help:

When the Jeff Fisher story broke, everyone was hopefull. However, after a few days, there was no news, so I went back and read the story again. The key phrase was 'is waiting for the FBI to arrive.' Why didn't they arrive?

So, I went to fbi.gov. Nada. I did news searches. Nada. I went to every Florida newspaper I could. Nada.
But, what I did find:

* 'FBI watching for double voting.'

* 'FBI shuts down 20 antiwar web sites: an unprecedented act of Internet censorship.'

* Bulletin Board text: 'Also, two FBI agents came by my house last week asking for names of radicals and organizations. My email is being monitored. Anyone on this board should assume the same. Is this an anomoly or does this mean that if you dig too far into the problems with electronic voting systems you might get a visit from the FBI?'

* 'SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- The American Civil Liberties Union has sued the FBI, trying to get more information about the agency's questioning of Muslims and Arabs as it investigates the possibility of pre-election terror attacks.'
