$1 MILLION REWARD for Proof of Machine Tampering
Edited on Fri Dec-17-04 05:47 PM by Laura PackYourBags
Let's get a million from Soros and or others and offer a reward
to any insider who helped and has proof that the republicans manipulated the machines to steal the election. Just think, they probably weren't republicans -- not smart enough to be programmers! Maybe we could get a million back from unused donations for lawyers/recounts that's sitting somewhere? Chevy Chase sure hates Bush enough to chip in...

2. There's already a $200,000 reward,
but you are right, it has to be at least $1 Mil to really get peoples attention. Then, they don't have to worry when they lose their job. We also, need to make sure that their safety would be protected.

3. I was thinking MoveOn already had the mechanism in place,
but, it would take a lot more, like you said. How to judge the proof -- how to protect the people. Just had a horrible thought - what if they've all been "dissappeared" already.

6. I agree. It would be a challenge, though, to come up with the
rules on it. Maybe the police could keep it. Or whoever is keeping the Find Bin Laden money, ha

10. I agree!
But so far Curtis has meticulously avoided seeking or accepting any money because he realizes it would undermine his credibility.

But as the investigations pan out and show what a real issue he has exposed, that consideration would be less compelling....and Curtis really should accept at least 200,000 for his great citizenship!

7. Yes, I agree. If we could just get contact with one who hates Bush
the most, and could organize the fundraising. They would be more likely to give. Let's see who hated him the most? Barbara Streisand did, Whoopi did...

9. Good idea - Just need an in to contact. I just checked my
old Media Blitz post, and we had collected from RedState Herring - John Mellencamp's address. The was also a post from someone that had a connection with Susan Sarandon.

12. Justice Through Music Reward
Justice Through Music, www.jtmp.org, initially posted a $100,000 reward around November 6th and it grew to $200,000 around the 16th. It was that reward that caught the attention of Clint Curtis, and JTM brought him to Washington to meet with Conyers et al, and then JTM brought him to Ohio to testify. Since then, JTM has put Clint on a media blitz with apperances on Air America, The Thom Hartman radio show, the Ed Schultz radio show, and he has been interviewed by the New York Times, Newsweek, 60 Minutes, Der Speigle and the Seminole Fla Chronicle. He will appear on www.radioinsidescoop.com on Sunday at 1pm EST, and you can hear it on the net, and Japan TV is interviewing him next week. www.bradblog.com, working with JTM, broke the Curtis story and everyone knows that the story has been huge news on DU and the other progressive blogs. In short, everyone should support JTM and add to the reward. All donations are tax deductible and obviously are being put to good use. JTM has been able to do a better job than a Madison Avenue PR firm on this story so please, if you want to have a million dollar reward, support the organization that stepped up to the plate and got results.

13. Sure they could be used as a mechanism. But I'm thinking
something much bigger - as far as celebrity support. I just look at the website. Is that what John Mellencamp was involved with??
