Tributes to John Gideon, RIP National Election Integrity Hero

I was shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of John Gideon, co director of Voters Unite. John tirelessly sent out the Daily Voting News, along with commentary, 365 days a year beginning with late 2003. John worked non stop, he encouraged each of us in every state to fight, and said that just one person could make a difference. He would know - his efforts made all of the difference. We in North Carolina and other states who care about election transparency owe John a huge debt. We at NCCVV will honor John's memory by continuing the work we started together long ago. There's no words to express my gratitude to John for all he did or sadness for how much he will be missed, every day.

Below are tributes dedicated to John Gideon by: Brad Friedman of Brad Blog, Kim Alexander of, Computer scientist Joseph Lorenzo Hall, Congressman Rush Holt, Warren Stewart of Verified, Bob Fertik of, Mark Crispin Miller, and Howard Stanislevic of the E-Voter Education Project, and Luther Weeks of Connecticut... more at the link
