Transcript from AEI-Brookings Election Reform Event Now Available

You can find it here. My favorite snippet:

    [Rick Hasen]: I just want to ask a follow-up question to the secretary, and this is the same question I asked Deb Markowitz when she was at the last of these events. I thought that NASS passed a very unfortunate resolution calling for the EAC to be disbanded by Congress by the end of 2006. And I'm wondering if there is any talk of repealing that because I think that although I am one of the people who has been critical of how the EAC has done some things, it is certainly needs to continue and it needs to be strengthened rather than gutted.

    [Indiana Sec. of State] Todd Rokita: Yes sir, you are an American and that is your opinion. No, there has not been any further discussion.

Such is the state of election reform in this country.
