Connection found between Mr. Noe and the Election - Very cool

Okay, I posted the information about Cheif Justice Moyer and a few other Ohio Justices recusing themselves from a case in Ohio a few days ago.

It has been bugging me as to how this case has exploded so quickly. Every day the Toledo Blade has more and more information on this developing story and the pace of revelations struck me as odd. So of course I just had to snoop.

Well, turns out the Mr. Noe who is in deep shit over the Rare Coin Scandal in Ohio was also definitely involved in the election process here in Ohio. It was Mr. Noe and company who were intervening on Kenneth Blackwells behalf in many of the court cases where questions of provisional ballots arose. He was also an Intervenor in the case to override the protest to the fraudulent recount in Ohio.

Nos. 04-4265/4266
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Northern District of Ohio at Toledo.
No. 04-07582James G. Carr, District Judge.
Submitted: October 23, 2004
Decided and Filed: October 26, 2004
Before: BOGGS, Chief Judge; GILMAN, Circuit Judge; and WEBER, District Judge.*

Pursuant to Rule 24(a) and (b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Thomas W. Noe, Glenn A. Wolfe, and Gregory L. Arnold (hereinafter, Intervenors), hereby move this Court for an order granting leave to intervene as Defendants in this proceeding. Intervenors have a vital interest in the subject matter of this proceeding and are so situated that the disposition of this action may, as a practical matter, impair or impede their ability to protect those interests.

There are many more cases, some dating back to 2003 where Mr. Noe Intervened on Blackwell's behalf. Another little twist in the story is the Judge who presided over many of the cases Judge Carr, is also the Judge who is now responsible for the only remaining lawsuit referencing the 2004 election.

A change of venue was ordered to the 6th District court and laid on the lap of Judge Carr. I did some checking on Judge Carr and here is a little of what I have found.

"He's a little goofy. He gets things wrong sometimes, though. Sometimes he'll make correct statements but really lose sight of the big picture. Lawyers need to help him get to the right place. He doesn't always have the best judgment." "He's not very good at recalling proceedings and remembering what's happened from appearance to appearance." " . . . I have to say that I think he is very biased in favor of law enforcement. He just won't allow for the fact that sometimes these guys inaccurately convey what happened, which is bothersome. Also, he's sensitive to due process--so long as no one is going to get acquitted." "He has a very distinct pro-law enforcement bent." "I think he tries to be fair, but he favors the government." -- "Lawyers' Evaluation" in I Almanac of the Federal Judiciary 48.6th Circuit (1998).

There's a lot more to this story and I'm not through digging yet. It appears that someone is gunning for Mr. Noe in a big way. He has the FBI and the state after him though ironically, Kenneth Blackwell is the one who is investigating him. Funny, huh?

On the same day a majority of the Ohio Supreme Court decided to sit out three cases brought before the court that involve prominent Republican fund-raiser and coin dealer Tom Noe, the Secretary of States office confirmed that it is investigating Mr. Noe for possible state campaign-finance violations.

We have been closely scrutinizing Mr. Noes campaign contributions going back to 1990 for any anomalies, said Carlo LoParo, a spokesman for Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell.

So the person who represented Mr. Blackwell and intervened in the trials concerning the election process in Ohio is now under investigation by Mr. Blackwell. I wonder if he'll get to be the judge and jury and find Mr. Noe innocent. Now how much do you want to bet, Blackwell and Noe have a few skeletons in thier collective closets? Anyone Noe how to find out who has contributed to Blackwell in the past? I think it'd be worth looking into.

I would also like to Noe who these other interweiners are: GLENN A. WOLFE, AND GREGORY L. ARNOLD. I haven't gotten quite that far yet but odds are there may be some well over due payback in process in Ohio going on as we speak. Someone is ratting out Mr. Noe and feeding a lot of dirty laundry to the press. They have not reported this connection yet; though I don't know why. It may be irrelevant, but to me, it's something that should be explored.
