Stolen election dept. Partisan Democrats are frequently complaining that the 2000 presidential election was stolen. At least the Republicans aren't constantly whining about how the Democrats stole the election for control of the US Senate:

  • Democrats were allowed to take Ashcroft's Senate seat from Missouri, even though all they had were sympathy votes for a dead candidate.
  • Sen. Jeffords was allowed to join the Democrats, even though he was elected to be a Republican.
  • The Nov. special election in Missouri may have its results delayed in order to keep the Republicans from recapturing the Senate. (Thanks to Volokh.)
