WAKE the F*CK UP: **Stop Election Fraud** Advice from Rep. John Conyers, D, MI

John Conyers, D, MI is a legendary figure in the Democratic Party. He served on the Judiciary Committee since 1964 (and was on that committee during the Nixon impeachment hearings); he is a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus; has sponsored critical legislation; recently called for * to explain the pre-war Bush-Blair memo; and investigated election fraud in Ohio right after the election.

Why is this important: because fraud occurred in Ohio; that fraud is a paradigm for what we can expect in the 2006/2008 elections. If we cant get fair elections, including a fair vote count, we will never regain control of congress and the White House. As a party, we are doing very little.

Here is a summary of What Went Wrong In Ohio by Rep. John Conyers. It is vital that we realize the scope of theft in just that state and GET ANGRY AND MOTIVATED. . The excerpts are followed by some excellent links showing how Bush stole Ohio and the national election. The very best election fraud work around takes place right here on DU in the Elections Forum.

Excerpts:

We have found numerous serious election irregularities in the Ohio presidential electionCumulatively, these irregularities, which affected hundreds of thousands of votersraise grave doubts about whiter it can e said that the Ohio electorswere chosen in a manner conforming to Ohio law, let alone Federal requirements and constitutional standards.

PRE ELECTOIN

I the following actions by Mr. Blackwell (Ohio Republican Secretary of State), the Republican Party, and elections officials disenfranchised HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of Ohio citizens, predominantly Minority and Democratic voters.

A. misallocation of voting machines led to unprecedented long lines that disenfranchised scores, if not hundreds of thousands, of predominantly Minority and Democratic Voters.

B. Mr. Blackwells decision to restrict provisional ballots resulted in the disenfranchisement of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of voters, predominantly Minority and Democratic voters.

C. Mr. Blackwells widely reviled decision to reject voter registration applicationsmay have resulted in thousands of new voters not being registered in timer for the 2004 election.

D. caging: tactics (voter intimidation through threatening letters, etc.) targeted 35,000 predominantly minority voters for intimidation, had a negative impact on voter turnout.

E. The Ohio Republican Partys decision to utilize thousands of partisan challengers contradicted concentrated in minority and Democratic areas probably disenfranchised tens of thousands of legal voters

F. Mr. Blackwells decision to prevent voters who requested absentee ballots, but did not receive them on a timely basis, from being able to receive provisional ballotsprobably disenfranchised thousands, if not tens of thousands of voters, particularly seniors.

II. On Election Day

A. widespread instances of intimidation and misinformation in violation of the Voting Rights Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1968, the Equal Protection Due Process and Ohio right to vote.

B. improper purging and other registration errors by election officials that probably disenfranchised tens of thousands of voters statewide.

C. There were 93,000 spoiled ballots where no vote was cast for president, the vast majority of which (were not inspected at the time of his report).

D. numerous significant unexplained irregularities.

1. Mahonig countyat least twenty-five electronic machines transferred an unknown number of Kerry votes to the Bush column;
2. Warren County locked out public observers from vote counting citing a FBI warning about terrorist threat(no FBI threat issues);
3. Perry County...signifiantly more votes than voters in some precincts
4. Butler County, down ballotDemocratic Supreme Court candidate (out polls) Kerry;


III. post election periodnumerous irregularities in tallying provisional ballots and conducting and completing the recount that disenfranchised thousands of voters and called the entire recount procedure into question:

A. failure to articulate clear and consistent standards for counting of provisional ballots.

Bfailure to issue specific standards for the recount contributed to a lack of uniformity in violating of both the Due Process clause and the Equal Protection clauseincluding:

1. Counties that did not randomly select precinct samples;
2. Counties which did not conduct a full hand count after the 3% hand and machine count did not match;
3. Counties which allowed irregular marking of ballots and failed to secure and store allots and machinery; and
4. Counties which prevented witnesses for candidates from observing various aspects of the recount.


C. The voting computer company Triad has essentially admitted that it engaged in a course of behavior during the recount in numerous counties to provide cheat sheets to those counting the ballot. how many votes they should find for each candidate, and how many over and under-votes they should calculate to match the machine count. In that way, they could avoid doing a full county-wide recount mandated by law.


WHY KERRY WON OHIO A STATISTICAL PROOF
