7. I got this from Laura all the 51 cap peeps know who she is
I just received this message from one of our "Nash-ional" conference
attendees (Dr. Sheila Leavitt, MD). She has already done the critical
groundwork today to get everything that you have to document the 2004
election theft in front of Jimmy Carter, both directly through his
assistant on the newly formed election commission AND through
Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.
Please -- EVERYONE OF YOU -- take a half day (or more or less) to
flood President Carter's office with documents and charts and graphs and reports and testimony and legal motions and web-links and, and ...
that will shout loudly to an honorable and moral man that "... there ain't no pony in the pile of horseshit..." that represents the 2004 election.
If everyone of you who had so much to say at Jefferson Street Missionary
Baptist Church would now say it loudly (and with as much persuasive
content and volume as possible) to President Carter, he may be a
worthy champion and facilitator of that long-delayed shining light of
corporate media coverage on the 2004 election theft.
So please read Sheila's letter below RIGHT NOW and consider doing
what she asks, just as quickly as you can. If you do, we may just be
moving toward helping facilitate a "Gathering" of panelists from our side
for testimony to the new commission. Thanks for doing this, and not just thinking this is a good idea. Don't wait for anyone else -- we're the only ones left. Hi Bernie:
It's Sheila Leavitt; we talked at the conference in Nashville this
week, for which I thank you more times than I can say. Would you please
pass this along, ASAP, to the other attendees, or send me your mailing
list so that I can do it. THANKS!


I have been on the phone all day trying to get through to President
Carter, and finally spoke to his executive assistant, NOT his Carter
Center assistant. Her name is Lauren Gay, and she was very
sympathetic
to the idea of hearing testimony from the various groups who were in
Nashville. She says that the only way to get information to her is
BY
MAIL. I suggest that as many organizations as possible, those with
results who would be willing to testify, especially,
OVERNIGHT MAIL (with signed receipt requested) a succinct summary of your
information, and a letter verifying your willingness to testify (the first hearing is this next Monday, April 18, at American University
in D.C.), to:
MS. Lauren GAY

Assistant to President Jimmy Carter
Co-Chairmam, Blue Ribbon Commission on Election Reform
The Carter Center

One Copenhill
Freedom Parkway
Atlanta, Ga. 30307

I would mark this "URGENT: TIME SENSITIVE. Election Reform
Information.
PLEASE OPEN IMMEDIATELY."


Ms. Gay's telephone number is: 404-420-5100 (this is the Carter
Center: ask for extension 207. I had to call several times and be very
specific that my subject was President Carter's role as Commission co-chair,
and his need to receive information from election reform groups, before she would talk with me. The Carter Center per se is NOT INVOLVED in this issue. But Ms. Gay says that she will welcome calls from others of you with specific information. Sending it IN WRITING is also imperative,
however.

I am aware that many attendees at the Nashville Conference cast a
very jaundiced eye on the Blue Ribbon Commission. I agree that it appears to have been set up as a smokescreen to detract attention from those of you doing legitimate and valuable work in researching the 2004
election. However, my own opinion is that if we merely protest Mr.
Baker's appointment as co-chair (which I definitely think should also be done), we will possibly lose a chance to get President Carter's ear and have a public forum to air your many findings of egregious election abuse. Just my opinion.


Also, I spoke about this with Congresswoman McKinney after her
address to our conference. She told me she believes Mr. Carter to be an honest broker, and says that she will help us in our attempt to get useful
information to him. You can send the same information that you mail to Ms. Gay to Congresswoman McKinney at:

hugh.esco@mail.house.gov This is the email of Rep. McKinney's
executive assistant; she has promised to pass it along to President Carter.
Please mark it clearly in the subject line as being for Pres. Carter in his capacity as Co-Chair of the Commission, to be forwarded by Rep.
McKinney.
