1. Thanks TFC-- also here's an interesting back-story refererence
to the Witness Intimidation angle, as allegedly reported by Cliff Arnebeck back in November:



"(...)

Also under seal will be any and all information gathered about allegations that Connell has been the victim of witness intimidation by Karl Rove and/or Rove's associates. As reported on by The BRAD BLOG reported last Summer, plaintiff's lead attorney in the case, Clifford A. Arnebeck, had sent an email to Attorney General Michael Mukasey on July 24, 2008, stating in part:
"We have been confidentially informed by a source we believe to be credible that Karl Rove has threatened Michael Connell, a principal witness we have identified in our King Lincoln case in federal court in Columbus, Ohio, that if he does not agree to 'take the fall' for election fraud in Ohio, his wife Heather will be prosecuted for supposed lobby law violations."

2. Yes, this is a very interesting story, to say the least
Conneell was also warned not to fly his plane, and cancelled two previous plane trips:

Which has led some to speculate whether or not he was even on the plane that crashed.
