South Dakota Fraud
U.S. District Judge Lawrence L. Piersol issued a temporary restraining order against the Republicans, concluding that "there was intimidation particularly targeted at Native American voters in Charles Mix County by persons who were acting on behalf of John Thune."
In a complaint filed late this afternoon, Daschle asked U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence Piersol to keep 200 Republican monitors from engaging in a list of activities at polling places across South Dakota, including writing down license plate numbers and taking notes.

Update: Six charged in absentee voter controversy 
The Associated Press published: 10/22/2004
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Six Republican notary publics face a misdemeanor charge in connection with absentee ballot applications filled out on South Dakota college campuses, but there's no evidence of voter fraud, Attorney General Larry Long said Friday.

Tonight six people connected with the South Dakota republican party have resigned over questions surrounding absentee ballot applications. The state director of the Republican Victory Program, Larry Russell is one of them...
Many absentee ballot applications are what led to a half dozen resignations. The people involved in securing the forms may not have always made sure a commissioned notary witnessed the voters' signatures.
Now Larry Russell has been rehired with three of five other Republican operatives who resigned in South Dakota. They will now be running the Ohio get-out-the-vote operation.
