66. A relevant anecdote (perhaps)
I am a BBV vounteer for my county. My function is only to request, obtain and relay the needed data from my local elections supervisor to the crew at BBV. A foot-soldier. Nothing more. Uninteresting data from a medium sized county in an unimportant state. I managed to complete that function last night.
But, last Tuesday night I was reading Jeff Fisher's website and relaxing with a beer or two. Then I cruised over to the BBV Clean Up Crew Forums to see what was shaking. Someone had just posted the curriculum vite of Dr. Pietr Blass and I read it.
The resume listed a cell phone number. I don't quite know what possessed me ( it happend almost in an instant ) Perhaps it was empathy for someone who was protecting someone who had helped his son out of a mess superimposed on my passion to get to the bottom of all of this. But I called it.
A man with a european accent answered, "Dr. Blass ".
Astonished, I dove right in, " Dr. Blass. I am a volunteer for an organization investigating election fraud. If Jeff Fisher's allegations are true, I undestand that you want to protect Jeff Klock because he helped win your son's freedom. But the information that you are reported to have is crucial to the freedom of millions of americans."
Obviously startled, He responded, " who are you?"
I replied," I am a volunteer for Blackboxvoting. Please go to the media. It's the only thing that might save us."
and then I hung up.
Believe me folks. I'm not one with delusions of grandeur and I know my place. usually.
Since I am a frequent caller to The Mike Malloy Show on Air America, I called Kathy the asst. producer who handles call screening. " Kathy, It's Wiley. I think I just screwed up royally........".
She told me that I had not harrassed the guy and acted out of duty and compassion and not to worry about it.
Good. I've confessed to the world. I expect your criticism.
So much for first impressions on my first post.
