Integrity Matters

And much as I disagree with him, “kos” has it.  For the last year and a half, the Daily Kos has been running polls of local contests.  Many times their results have seemed skewed to the left, but I’d always assumed it was the question wording or likely-voter assumptions.

Not so.  It turns out that the polling firm (R2000) was faking their data and defrauding the Daily Kos, telling them what they wanted to hear.  Some lefty statisticians finally got suspicious, took a good look at the numbers and pretty much proved that the data was cooked.   They brought the info to Markos, and he outed them big time.  Takes real integrity to admit you’ve been had.  Bravo.
