Robert F. Kennedy Jr., LLM Biography

Chief Prosecuting Attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper and President of Waterkeeper Alliance
Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"

“What is most anomalous about the irregularities in 2004 was their decidedly partisan bent: Almost without exception they hurt John Kerry and benefited George Bush. After carefully examining the evidence, I’ve become convinced that the president’s party mounted a massive, coordinated campaign to subvert the will of the people in 2004. For the second election in a row, the president of the United States was selected not by the uncontested will of the people but under a cloud of dirty tricks… If the last two elections have taught us anything, it is this: The single greatest threat to our democracy is the insecurity of our voting system.”
