Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org In his column in the Washington Post columnist David Broder reports on HR-811, its status and opposition from state election officials. Oddly the National Association of Secretaries of State has taken no public position according to Broder. However other national organizations representing state legislators and counties have voiced opposition. Broder also mentions opposition from the American Association of People With Disabilities. Strangely congressional aides discount the opposition from AAPD because they think People for the American Way speaks for the disabled community and PFAW is in full support of the bill. What is especially bothersome about this column is that Broder admitted to needing information from an expert so he turned to Doug Lewis of the Election Center for his biased, vendor influenced opinion. It's too bad that a man who can't see a conflict of interest in allowing vendors to sponsor events at his semi-annual meetings, is the only person a non-expert can turn to for information and not know that information will be biased....
