7. But there's not just one factor here -- Connell was unique
Connell was the one guy who knew were all the bodies were buried -- and was also almost, maybe on the verge of talking about it.

Other people who may have been involved in election fraud are either so deep in it they'll never tell or so peripheral they don't much matter. Connell was perfectly poised in the middle -- deep enough to know some secrets worth telling, deep enough that the feds could lean on him, but not so deep that personal loyalty or fear of jail would keep him silent.

If the 2004 election really was stolen in Ohio, and if you wanted to eliminate just one person to keep that from coming out, Connell is the one you would target.

It's like if Chavez was killed in a plane crash, you wouldn't say, "Oh, heads of state travel a lot and these things happen." Instead, your first reaction would be, "I bet they got him."

Connell was just that singular and just that important.
