|Palm Beach Poll Worker Describes Pro-Gore Election Fraud|
A Democratic state senator had voters in Palm Beach County, Fla., instructed on how to cast their ballots for Vice President Al Gore, a poll worker has revealed to NBC News.
On Wednesday, Palm Beach County poll worker Bernice Epstein told the network's Greg Jarrett that Senator Ron Klein had her steer votes to Gore.
"Ron Klein, our state senator, came to me and told me that when we give out these palm cards, give them out to people, I should tell people that they must be very careful to punch Number 5 [for Gore] because the arrows were misleading," said Epstein.
"And when they came out, they thanked me," the poll worker added. "They told me that it was definitely a problem and it would have been."
Apparently concerned that the poll worker had inadvertently revealed pro-Gore vote fraud, Jarrett tried to steer Epstein back on course.
"You didn't just tell people to punch Number 5," the reporter interjected. "I mean, you were telling people that 5 corresponds to Gore and that other numbers correspond with other candidates."
But Epstein didn't seem to get the message, telling Jarrett next, "These people took my palm cards which the political action committee put out."
Epstein's account was first broadcast on MSNBC and later picked up by talk radio's Rush Limbaugh, but has been ignored by journalists who have been doggedly pursuing other allegations of voting irregularities that would help Gore.
The audio of Epstein's comments to NBC is available on Limbaugh's Web site, rushlimbaugh.com.
