Letter fromBlackwell: Helped deliver OH for B* BEFORE votes were COUNTED
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 01:08 AM by Karenca
THE ENTIRE LETTER FROM BLACKWELL ON THIS LINK:
http://rawstory.rawprint.com/105/blackwell_campaign_let...

Ohios Republican Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell boasted of helping deliver Ohio for President Bush and said he was truly pleased to announce Bush had won Ohio even before all of the states votes had been counted in his own fundraising letter, RAW STORY has discovered. (Read the full story, including response from a Congressman, here.)

The letter, which was received by a Butler County resident Dec. 31, is a plea to support Blackwells campaign for governor. The resident has asked to remain anonymous.

In apparent disregard for his nonpartisan role as Ohios chief election official, the Republican Secretary and chairman of Bushs Ohio reelection campaign slammed Senator Kerry as a disaster who would have reaped terrible and horrible results on both Ohio and the United States.

Further, Blackwells use of the word deliver finds striking resonance with another controversial fundraising letter sent by the CEO of voting machine manufacturer Diebold Walden ODell in the summer of 2003 when he said he was committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year.

3. I'll give it a kick myself,
and file it away, to await further confirmation. But I can't 'run' with it, without a named source.
