Sherole Eaton Attends Hocking Democrat Meeting
I was quite surprised to see Sherole in attendance at the Hocking Democrat Meeting tonight. She was released from the hospital earlier today after having brain surgery just 3 days ago. Her face is bruised, her head shaved, large incision on her head, and just as ready to stand up for Democracy as she was the day she stood up to the Hocking Board of Elections during the recount in December.

Standing before the microphone, she explained to the crowd the surgery was not successful. They were unsuccessful in clipping the aneurysm from the path they went in due to the position it is in. The aneurysm lies between her brain and eye requiring surgery through the arteries. Since she also had recently had surgery on her carotid artery, they could not go through them. They plan to go back in and place a coil on the aneurysm.

Since she was fired effective June 30, 2005, she is hoping to have the surgery yet this month while she still has insurance. She can keep her insurance through the COBRA plan, but it will cost approximately $600 a month. A pledge list was passed around the room and donations were made to help pay her insurance premiums. It was decided to place the funds into the fund established by her son, Sherole Eaton 11/02/2004. Sherole received a standing ovation from the crowd of Democrats in attendance.

Hocking County President Regina Prater opened the floor for discussion of Sheroles firing. The two Hocking "democrat" Board of Election members, Susie Hughes and Gerald Robinette were present at the meeting. It was these two individuals that had voted for Diebold and voted along with the Republicans to fire Sherole. Bruce Johnson stated to Gerald Robinette, We will have a recommendation of who we want to become the next Deputy Director and asked Will you follow our recommendation? Gerald Robinette replied, No, I cannot say that we will and added, We normally just go along with whomever the Republicans want A few people spoke to the group to explain these two individuals do not have the Democrat parties' interest at heart. The crowd applauded and shouted in support of cleaning up the party.

Regina Prater asked for the resignations of both Susie Hughes and Gerald Robinette from the BOE. They refused despite the resounding applause in support of her request.

1. Statement says it all.
"No, I cannot say that we will and added, We normally just go along with whomever the Republicans want"

Dinos are who are running the show in Ohio, its clear they do whatever Blackwell wants and toe the line of fraud in elections. I bet you not one of these democrats would do anything against the wishes of Blackwell. :puffpiece:

2. Was truly amazing
The guy sat there and said that in the middle of a room of angry Dems......also was truly amazing that the two didn't resign when the entire room applauded the request. Word on the street is both these members may not be VALIDLY holding office......which means, maybe everything they have done, Sherole's firing, the recount, the elections......could be proven illegal......just word on the street at this time......legal opinions will be coming soon....

3. Think they can catch Triad in the act?
Is it possible to indict the Triad machine represenative, who laughed and posted the cheat sheet as he "re-calibrated" the machines for his boss?

Can they lay out a court order with the scandal now exploding?

4. Sure hope so
Not an attorney... so I cannot answer that question.

There is much more coming out of Hocking County.....including the Republican Director shredding voter records....planning political fundraisers while on the job.....ballots unlocked laying in a desk drawer....the Republican key fitting the Democrat locks....the Board knowing all this and not acting on it....

Ya know, they always said Hocking County was a true bellweather county.....maybe the bell is about to ring?

5. In the climate of Dems there, It's truly amazing
That they could have even been there, much less that the response was as quoted.

I certainly don't believe it was bravery.
Just more stupidity.

It's a real wonder that they were not lynched

7. Wow that is just frightening.
Do you have any news links on this yet? They should get a team of at least 6 "Landshark" style lawyers in there.

10. There were NO reporters at the meeting
The local paper The Logan Daily News was called prior to the meeting, the response was, "It isn't newsworthy" It was pointed out to them Sherole is a Federal Whistleblower that has been offered body guards and speaking engagements nationwide, etc., and they said, "They will put a message on the reporters desk." When ask if the reporter would be returning to the office prior to the meeting, they responded, "I don't know"

PM me, I can give you a few names of people to interview that were at the meeting.

11. We should look into all counties.
I bet we would find alot of Democrat members on the boards that are not really Democrats.

14. Sherole Eaton Fund Update
I had previously posted information on the Sherole Eaton fund. The post was locked because I hadn't obtained the proper permissions (didn't read the rules about posting fund raising). I emailed Skinner to ask him to unlock and also to give him information to verify the fund. I did hear back from him today, and I am hoping he will unlock the thread soon.

If or when he does, can someone keep it kicked?
