An Op-Ed follow up to this morning's news...

Via The LA Times, it seems all is not well with LA's super Tuesday results:

Across Los Angeles County, many nonpartisan voters who cast ballots in the Democratic primary have learned to their dismay that their votes in the presidential contest did not matter. ... {California Democratic Party spokesman} had harsh words for L.A. County's voting system.

"It's a terrible ballot design," he said. "It requires the voter to take an extra step. The purpose of a democracy is to make a person's vote easy to count. If it turns out that they were aware of this problem previously, then somebody should be held accountable."

Hmmm, ya think?
