My vote for important reading

I was going to wait until finishing Deliver the Vote to write about it again, but I'm finding so much to recommend that I can't resist. If there's a political buff or civic activist on your gift list, this history of American election fraud is the book you should get them.

In the early chapters, author Tracy Campbell serves up bitter medicine for Democratic readers. It turns out, though, that he thereby inoculates himself for any backlash against what he reveals about today's Republicans. Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004 were so much worse than I remembered! If you love your country, if you believe in democracy, you must read this book.
