Nixon, 1968, l’élection…. et des urnes pleines en vente sur Ebay !

« Ce qui est arrivé en 2000 n’a fait que révéler une réalité qui imprègne depuis longtemps le système électoral américain. Pendant près de cent ans, alors que la Constitution de 1787 donne aux Etats fédérés pleine compétence sur l’encadrement des élections, ce sont les partis politiques qui ont organisé les élections, fabriqué les bulletins de vote, s’assurant du taux de participation. Avec, en arrière-plan, des suspicions de corruption, de votes frauduleux, de disparition de bulletins. » extrait de : Les fractures électorales de la démocratie américaine, publié sur Visions Carto, le blog du Monde diplo.
Avec, en prime, une découverte faite sur ebay, en août 2008….
