House Judiciary Ohio Forum
Hears of Recount Fraud Plans



David Cobb tells Conyers Forum of

The House Judiciary Cmte., meeting in Columbus, Ohio to investigate presidential election vote irregularities in the state, has heard evidence that preparations to conduct a fraudulent recount are underway statewide.

In early testimony, chairman of the forum, Rep. John Conyers heard from Green party presidential candidate, David Cobb that employees of punch card vendor, Triad Governmental Systems, Inc. (Triad GSI) are attempting to orchestrate a fraudulent recount of the 3 percent of precincts likely to be included in the first phase of the recount process.

Cobb cited one case detailed by an --as yet anonymous-- informant, that a Triad GSI employee had advised election staff to inconspicuously note a prepared recount result, then report this data irrespective of the actual recount.

"This is going on, all over the state," Cobb told the hearing.

The forum also heard evidence that over the weekend, Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, directed election staff to interrupt a public inspection of minority precincts in Greene County, and remove election poll books from two certified volunteers for the Ohio Recount team who were checking them.

Joan Quinn, a retired attorney said she was hand-copying voter discrepancies from precinct voting books when officials in direct contact with Mr. Blackwells' office were instructed to "lock down" the records.

Eve Robertson, a retired election official from California corroborated that account and gave testimony that her interrupted inspection was showing that minority students --who seemed to have voted overwhelmingly for John Kerry-- comprised the bulk of the provisional votes.

John Bonifaz requested Rep. Conyers to formally object to any declaration of a winner of the electoral college vote on January 6th, 2005 --if a recount was still underway or a different set of electors had been nominated for Ohio.

Rep. John Conyers vowed that this was not the last such meeting. He said Judiciary Cmte. staffers would in coming days be meeting with witnesses and accepting depositions.

The hearing is continuing.

1. They need to throw this OUT
and REVOTE the state. Not recount.

They've played too much with the evidence by now.

9. Nothing new?!
The Triad employee committed his crime on Friday, and the first I heard of it was today. I think this is MAJOR and shows just how desperately terified they are now. They are taking crazy, panicky chances.

12. Jeeeeezzzuuuusss
Somebody needs to bring these bastards in Ohio kicking and screaming out of their plush and warm offices. Maybe a bit is to be learned from -- God help me for saying this -- Anne "the man" Coulter. That is, maybe we ought to put them at the end of a rifle and see how they feel about converting to the ideology of truth... Nothing else seems to be working to get through to these yokels.

16. Small hidden cameras should exist
in all of these BOE offices around the state. There seems to be no attempt to secure the machines or the ballots!!! Sort of reminds me of our INS!
