16. It would improve his credibility if the people he claims he is working
with actually confirmed that they are working with him. Fisher claimed that Nader's rep made an "official announcement" that Nader and he were working together on this stuff. Nader's rep says he made no such announcement (per Olbermann). Then Fisher changed the focus away from the announcement that didn't happen to something else, suggesting the Nader rep was out of the loop.

There was a section on his site where Rogers spoke with the DNC legal counsel. Supposedly after revealing the fraud of the century to the DNC legal team that would rock the country, Rogers then goes on to complain about a Florida newspaper reporter and says the paper has been informed (by whom?) that the DNC will sue the newspaper for libel if it doesn't retract a story saying they spoke to Fisher when they didn't actually speak to him directly. Besides the lack of proportionality, revealing stunning election fraud and then complaining about a newspaper story to the DNC, it's simply not credible that the DNC is going to sue a Florida newspaper over something like that.

Sending letters, talking to folks and dropping names is not the same thing as working in concert with those same folks which might lend some credence to his claims.

No doubt Fisher's targeted some shady characters and businesses with influential political connections. But that in itself is not proof of his claims.

And if indeed these guys are not playing with a full deck, this is just the sort of "outlandish" story that some people would love to use to discredit those who presently are working on the ground, performing recounts, audits and investigations. Just a thought.
