1. They aren't even really attempting to hide the fraud.
Absolutely sickening.

7. we will
It will be 'hard work' but it will get done.

Call me an optimist but I have already convinced my family, most of my friends, neighbors I barely knew two months ago and my co-workers that the election was not fair. I know that from what I have learned here at DU. Two months ago I was depressed. Now I am informed. And knowledge is power.

So yes, I believe we will bring them down.

btw, nice letter in the NYT today. :)

15. Don't worry about those Texans
There are 49 other states to take care of. Actually, not even that many if you figure the blue states are ours.

Think of it like dominoes. You know a few new ones fell our way over the weekend with the news about Armstrong Williams. The one freeper I work with avoided me all day long. It was mighty sweet.

17. And wasn't that a sweet coincidence
that CBS fired those people on the heels of the news about Williams?

It's becoming a pattern with the RW. Bad news - that makes them look bad - comes out on a Friday. Then on Monday, it's time for an attack or bad news for the left.

I am not a conspiracy nut, but this has just happened a few times too many for my comfort. I first noticed it on the Friday after the DNC. Remember that? Job figures came out showing our 'I will create a jillion jobs' president was way behind in his goal. Then on Saturday - Terror alert! And on Monday, the swiift boat liars launched a new attack. By then, no one remembered what had happened in Boston at the DNC the week before and there was no discussion in the MSM concerning those jobs that had not been created by bush.

11. There's your fraud. Not scientific proof, but I feel it.
The feeling of fraud in the Ohio air is so thick you could cut it with a knife!

3. As MSNBC said
he was the guy who was supposed to know the election rules.

Maybe he was just used as another token to the GOP.

5. I don't understand how he is allowed to get away with this.
when are we going to start fighting fire with fire, instead of so called dem leaders going on tv and talking about one of our biggest contributers, and supporters not being representive of the dem party.

6. The 6th page is where he says corporate checks are welcome.
Which is illegal from what I've heard.

13. Yup ... Blackwell doesn't know the rules for campaign financing
he's requested illegal corporate contributions in
the letter.

What a joke: he's in charge of running the elections!

He claims it was just an oversight, and says any
contributions received will be returned. How very
reassuring that is.

Blackwell Fundraising Letter

I suppose that Diebold, ESS and Triad
didn't actually need to receive copies of his
letter, but it would sure be interesting to know
which corporations did.

9. He's Proud Of Disenfranchising Thousands
he's a typical pig republican who thinks it's cool to steal elections.

He did what ever it took to make sure that Senator Kerry the disaster who would have reaped terrible and horrible results on both Ohio and the United States...would lose.

10. I wonder if white racists will vote for him and congratulate themselves
"See, see! Look at me! I couldn't possibly be racist! I voted for Kenneth Blackwell."
