Latest Wikileaks dump shows Dems effort to throw 2008 election

This morning Wikileaks began its latest document dump in a series of cables that it calls 'The Global Intelligence Files.' Part of the information contained in the files shows that the Democratic Party engaged in an effort to throw the 2008 election.
The Democrats may have succeeded, and the election results from 2008 may be entirely skewed.
At issue is internal communication within a company in Texas called Stratfor. The company bills itself as a 'global intelligence service' that offers confidential information to large corporations and political entities.

Did you mean "throw" or something else?

"Throw" means to lose intentionally; I think that's the opposite of what you meant.

As you know the word 'throw' has a gazillion different meanings. If I had to do the article over, I would have chosen a different word due to the fact that most assume that in the context I meant that the Dems deliberately tried to lose the election. But the article makes it clear what I meant.
