Which states are suspect?

Florida is quite clearly suspect, as it had numerous documented irregularities with vote counting and voter disenfranchisement. Tennessee is suspect due to the strangeness of Gore losing his own home state that Clinton had won in 92/96, similar voter suppression tactics to those in Florida, and the insecure voting machines used throughout the state (such as the Shouptronic 1242 and AccuVote OS in Shelby County). Are there any other states that should be considered suspect? A particularly good place to look would be other swing states like Ohio. Aside from Florida, there were no exit poll discrepancies significant enough to cause an "erroneous" call for Gore, but there may have been smaller unreported discrepancies.
