15. I'm a flipped out Dem in NV...
I met with the lone anti-war/election fraud activist in Reno, Patrica Axelrod, yesterday, and she shared with me some election documents that she has obtained from our good ol' boy SOS Dean Heller (R). She hasn't got her hands on all of the docs she requested yet, and is still going to be required to pay $1.00 per page, but she seems tenacious enough to get to the bottom of what exactly happened here in NV. I'm trying to get a handle on any anomalies in NV, so this info helps a bit. She has asked me to go over some of these docs in more detail next week. And the more insight and info we have about NV, the better we might be able to recognize any anomalies.

Here is the AP article (From Reno Gazette Journal) about her:
1/28/2005 12:00 am

A judge ruled that Nevada Secretary of State Dean Heller must let a
Reno woman copy records she sought to verify the result of November's
presidential election.

While Patricia Axelrod, a Democrat, was able to see the documents last fall, she claimed in a lawsuit that Heller's office refused to provide copies and charged an excessive copying fee of $1 per page.
Heller, a Republican, said Axelrod simply didn't want to pay the fee, and his office didn't have some documents she requested.

In his Wednesday ruling, Carson City District Judge William Maddox did not find that Heller refused Axelrod's requests. The judge said he would address the appropriateness of the copying fee later.

Axelrod sought preliminary and final official election documents from all 17 Nevada counties. She said she wanted to prove her theory that malfeasance and machine malfunctions "swayed our blue state into a red." Axelrod said when she filed the lawsuit in December that citizens have a right to know if George Bush fairly won the presidential contest over Democrat John Kerry.

Bush won Nevada's five electoral votes with a 21,500-vote margin over Kerry.

Thanks, TruthIsAll, for all of your number-crunching. I've been following it for some time now.
