2. We know these people have no shame
And do you think his god-fearing, women's rights opposing candidate will stand up and say to these cowards, no thanks guys, I'll win or lose on my own merits. Hell no. She's glad to have these cowards front for her and discredit Hackett with rumor, innuendo, etc. How these people sleep at night is a marvel.

6. Me too.
Hope he can raise some serious funds to answer these accusations. We know from experience that you have to act fast. He must be polling well to have attracted this kind of abuse.

4. Here's the email I sent to Ohio GOP hq
As a veteran I'm tired of you chickenhawks trying to smear someone who has served his country.
You people should either sign up or STFU.

9. I think Paul can handle this...
This is desperation. From what I have read of Mr Hackett up to this point, I'm guessing he will use this tactic against his opponent.

"In an effort to distract from the real issues involving Jean Schmidt and the Ohio Retirement scandal, they have now chosen to denigrate and smear my military record. I guess Karl Rove is still in the game."

I like that term "swift-boated" as well.

Paul... turn it back on them!! Attach the smear campaign to Bush and Rove.

10. We need someone to say "Have you no decency?"
But these psychos seem not to care about decency. What ever happened to that? I mean, what ever happened to people caring about decency? These guys not only don't care....they're proud of it. I've never seen a whole group of people so audacious and hungry for power. There's no self respect or desire for self respect.

They've probably always been around, but they never had power until computerized voting made election stealing easy for them.

12. Skids ~
Thanks for all those great links! I looked at them on another post and wow.. you've done a great job of compiling all the places to check for results!

I hope there's a huge effort to do thorough exit polling in places that have Diebolds! :scared:

13. Thanks.

If I have time I'll see about trying to capture results, but of course extra witnesses (and copies) to strange blips in the results always help, so save your views to disk, folks.

Also not being from the area I may have missed several newspapers, and the ones I did list may have live results which they have not posted a URL for, so a bit more digging the day beforehand is in order.
