Supports clean money campaigns and other election reforms

I support election reforms -- debates that include all ballot-approved candidates, instant run-off voting (also known as ranked choice or majority voting), universal registration, same day registration, clean money campaigns, proportional representation as well as other steps to reinvigorate our democracy.

Impeach Bush & Cheney for lying about Iraq

I favor an impeachment inquiry of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. If President Bush and Vice President Cheney misled the country in order to invade Iraq they should be impeached for doing so - there is no greater crime a president can commit then lying to the nation in order to start a war. Holding him personally responsible for these actions is important in order to prevent future presidents from behaving similarly.

Doubt about election results weakens democracy

Democracy in the United States has shown serious weakness in recent years. The results of the last two presidential races are doubted by many. In Maryland, a governors race - where a Democrat won - is doubted by Republicans. Doubt in election results, redistricting to limit competition, low voter turnout, exclusion of third parties and our antiquated "winner take all voting" are issues that need urgent attention.

Require a paper record for computerized voting

[I advocate] requiring a paper record for computerized voting. Two dozen states have passed laws requiring a paper record while Maryland is one of two states (Georgia is the other) that votes statewide without a paper record. Such records are important to restore confidence that votes are counted as they are intended as such records can be used in transparent, independent audits and meaningful recounts. The Democratic Party leadership in particular has been a problem on this issue in Maryland.
