Richard Hayes Phillips Declaration: "Direct Evidence of Ballot Tampering"
This declaration filed in court on 9/1/2006 contains Phillips' findings to date in his recent examination of 2004 ballots and other records in eleven counties in Ohio. These findings lead him to the conclusion that "there is direct evidence of ballot tampering".

http://moritzlaw.osu.edu/electionlaw/litigation/documents/DeclarationofRichardHayesPhillipsfiledbyRichardHayesPhillips.pdf

Use the link above to see the declaration in full. Start at paragraph 9 if you want to jump to Phillips' recent work. Paragraphs 1 - 8 have some preliminaries and background on older investigation.

Here's just a shell of the declaration:

_______________________________________________________________________________________
DECLARATION OF RICHARD HAYES PHILLIPS
_______________________________________________________________________________________


Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1746, I, Richard Hayes Phillips, declare the following:


1. I have personal knowledge of the facts alleged herein.


-snip-


61. Having reviewed a substantial amount of forensic evidence, it is my conclusion that
there is direct evidence of ballot tampering in each of the eleven counties whose
public records I have examined, and that there is a compelling need to protect the
evidence from destruction, presently scheduled to take place on or shortly after
September 2, 2006. The Court should order all Boards of Elections to continue to
preserve and protect all ballots, poll books, voter signature books, and associated
records from the November 2, 2004 election until a suitable repository is found for
their permanent preservation.

I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.


Executed this first day of September, 2006.

51. Like your 'tude!
But didn't the Dispatch spin their own poll right into the ground after the 30% last minute swing in
the special issues election? They're spinmeisters extraordinaire...

Phillips is first rate. I read his stuff on SW Ohio...the guy has it down.

Happy days.

60. I tease their political reporter with e mails all the time
When RFK Jr's article came out I sent it to him .....

he sent this nugget back;

The analysis is incorrect. The dispatch and other Ohio papers have looked at these issues and come up with different conclusions. Salon, not a conservative bastion, did a critique of the rfk article that hits the major points. Thanks for writing.

his name is Jonathan Riskand


BTW go down thread and look @ the ballots (mod mom's post ????)

The Claremont County ballot w/ the sticker over Kerry's punch is so fucking balls out cheating ....

77. Hey Botany, wanna really piss him off....
This will do it...Salon, Mother Jones & the Tortured Dialogue. It's heavily referenced & this is the "Print" version. The links just shine.

He'd also get a kick out of this one re: the stickies on ballots;) - DJ VU ALL OVER AGAIN? DEMOCRAT HACKETT LOSES A SQUEAKER IN OHIOS 2nd CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT:

"In Clermont, irregularities and hostilities were the order of the day, according to three eye witnesses who gave affidavits to the Conyers committee. Stephen Spraley, an electrician and Ohio Democratic Party recount volunteer, offered a report of major significance. He saw a number of ballots with oval white stickers placed next to the candidates name and covering the Presidential selection. Spraley approached Assistant Board Director Kathy Jones, a Democrat, with a ballot on which a Kerry choice was covered with a sticker. Before Jones could speak, Dan Bare, the board chairman, said this would be addressed later at a board meeting. At the meeting, the board agreed that the stickers were part of a process in Ohio to avoid spoilage.

Spraley called Carolyn Betts, who was working as a recount observer in Hamilton County. Betts has both MBA and JD degrees, as well as impressive experience with white collar crime, fraud cases, and contentious financial transactions. Betts confirmed Spraleys observations and concerns about altered ballots found during the recount. This observation carries added weight because it is contemporaneous and consistent with Spraleys. Betts noted that Danny Bare said that using white sticker on candidate selections was an acceptable means of fixing ballot problems prior to vote counting. Bare restated and confirmed this position at the Clermont Boards certification meeting for the recount. Betts also noted that Spraley told her he had asked to take a photograph of one of the altered ballots and was denied this request."

Tell him there will be a quiz and he needs to be prepared. What a bunch of wimps. Their own poll shows major problems (special issues) and they cave in like a cheap pup tent. Sweet!

80. Bottom Line
"They" know it was dirty because they have the same info we do .....
it is all about plausible deniability and repeating the company line.


<Betts noted that Danny Bare said that using white sticker on candidate selections was an acceptable
means of fixing ballot problems prior to vote counting.>

Good Lord what a crock of shit .... stickers on optiscan ballots = no vote.

82. Thanks for deepening my understanding...
I can't imagine what it's like. Of course everybody knows its corrupt...everybody, they just won't admit it and it must be aggravating in the extreme and even laughable at times.

I'm promising to show up at the Strickland inauguration just to feel see the joy and get a little satisfaction myself from all that's gone on.

Ohio deserves much better, particularly the activists.

Get 'em...and keep on that Dispatch guy. They deserve it.

11.  Richard Hayes Phillips Ph.D., Geomorphology,
RESUME
Richard Hayes Phillips

DEGREES AWARDED
Ph.D., Geomorphology, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon, 1987.

M.A., History, University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma 1983.

M.A., Geography, University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma 1982.

Resume

snip>
Richard Hayes Phillips, Ph.D. is a professional hydrologist, well versed in standard techniques of statistical analysis, with special expertise in spotting anomalous data.

He analyzed unofficial results from the 2004 general election in Columbus and Cleveland.

Dr Phillips says, "There is compelling evidence of systematic withholding of voting machines from predominantly Democratic wards in Columbus, many of them with high black populations. This action severely restricted voter turnout in these wards, and cost John F. Kerry upwards of 17,000 votes. Franklin County Board of Elections Director Matt Damschroder is known to have made this decision, and he is known to have met with Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell and President George W. Bush in Columbus on Election Day."

Free Press since the '04 election. DU's own Emlev worked with him after the '04 election. As the court paper's have noted he has written a multitude of articles for Freepress.

Are you talking about John Kerry or *ush the Commander and Theif?

If they get riled, just say, "Would you ask me to respect the leader of ANY OTHER COUNTRY that got into office by rigging the election?"

He's NOT MY PRESIDENT.

87. It's 9 am, the sun is up, and I've had a couple of coffees...
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 08:38 AM by eomer
so I'll hazard a guess.

The most obvious explanation would be that some of the original supply of ballots were used to commit fraud like ballot stuffing. They are supposed to retain the unused ballots and the spoiled ballots for the same amount of time as the voted ballots so that they can later be audited to show that the actual number of unused ballots is equal to the number that should have been left over from the original supply. The only purpose of these control measures is to make it more difficult to commit fraud.

If they were trying to surreptitiously order ballots after the election that they would be able to slip in as if part of the original supply then this would be a clear indication of criminal ballot tampering.

Edit: apparently I haven't had enough coffee yet. I should probably have said "ballot swap" instead of "ballot stuffing". With just straight stuffing then the accounting of ballots would have looked okay. But if they swapped out true ballots, discarded them, and replaced them with "punch party" ballots then the accounting wouldn't add up correctly. Or if they just discarded some of the true ballots without replacing them. Either way they would need to order up some ballots if they wanted the count to come out right.

13. Yea but...
Pardon my cynicism, I just voted today and could not believe there actually was a line to use the electronic machine. People freely hand their vote over without a paper trail.

Although it seems, even with a paper trail nobody cares. They suck on their big gulp and watch TV, screaming that we're tearing America apart because we want the results to actually be counted correctly.

I can see one problem with Phillips' argument, it is possible that a long series of Bush votes could be cast in a row if a busload of Republicans had just come in from some fundamentalist church of Satan.

22. Same here -
Is the idea that the sticker is applied later on top of a ballot marked for Kerry - then revoted for Bush? So, these would have been tampered with between when they were voted and when they were counted?

Aren't their bi-partsan people involved in counting the votes? This looks too blatant not to be noticed. How is this coming out now? Have they released things not seen before? (Even RFK jr, who seemed to have investigated relatively thoroughly had nothing like this.)

- I would be thrilled (and infuriated at the Republicans) if Kerry really won.

47. They *were* noticed
during the so-called recount.

Here's one link about them.

About your "bi-partisan people" question, the answer is yes and no. County Boards of Election in Ohio do have to have employees who are registered Democrat and employees who are registered Republican. However, anybody can register in any party or change their registration, right? I think it was in Ohio that the term "DINO" was coined. It stands for "Democrat in Name Only." Poke around a bit and you'll find examples where the "Democratic" staff people in Ohio BOE offices were anything but.

Time to be thrilled and infuriated. Kerry really won.

And oh, BTW, RFK didn't so much investigate thoroughly as he (and at least one other person who worked on the article, I believe) reviewed work by people like Richard Hayes Phillips and Bob Fitrakis and restated it to a larger audience.

If you want to see RHP's original work, you can find lots of it at freepress.org or go to Richard Hayes Phillips's website.

68. People need to realize that a majority of election officials
Are Republicans or DINOS, or anything but Democrats

Perhaps there are a few places qualifying aws exceptions
like CHicago Illinois and Boston MA but the overall
status of electionofficials is Republican.
That is why even in liberal Marin COunty, you have People
like Elaine ginnold and Michael SMithwho talk about being
registered "Independents" but who act like they are the
Diebold payroll

54. er...This affidavit was filed as part of a federal lawsuit.
This suit is being aggressively pressed forward in US District court in Columbus by Cliff Arnebeck and a team of elections lawyers before Judge Algernon Marbley, a Clinton appointee who is as serious as a heart attack about enforcing equal protection and due process in the Ohio electoral system. This is Blackwell's worst nightmare.

Enough with the nay saying.

42. I still want people prosecuted for the "terror threat" in Warren County.
But I'll start with news like this and remain cautiously optimistic.

Thank you for posting this. May we give a thousand cuts to the current one-party rule.

62. To Richard "Purple Hayes" Phillips: keep up the country-saving work...
... someone has to do it.

We here in the Orange State support you and are proud to know you. It has been nice to see the brick walls of the Jefferson Street Missionary Baptist Church (Nashville) framing your fury in not one, but two, election reform videos this week. I hope our paths cross again soon.

63. well, it's not his fault
As someone noted upthread, he is a geologist, indeed a geomorphologist, by training. So, certainly a researcher and a scientist. Certainly conversant in mathematics and statistics, although those are not his fields. A "private investigator" in the sense that he has conducted investigations on his own -- no relation to Sam Spade. Also a self-described "lyric poet" and "wandering minstrel" (http://web.northnet.org/minstrel/). A man of many talents, but not of multiple personalities.

I've never met RHP, but I think he's done good stuff, although I disagree with some of his statistical extrapolations.

73. just an FYI
Gifted people, as this man no doubt is, are not just gifted in one area, as a general rule. They are gifted in many areas.

No surprise to me that he is versatile and multifaceted as a personality.

It's a stereotype in American culture that the more dedicated one is to one area, the better or more professional one is. Simply not the case.

74. I absolutely agree
I would hold up Febble as another example. Not long ago I was googling for one of her New Mexico analyses, or something like that, and came across a review of a performance that included one of her compositions for voice.

69. More background on Dr. Richard Hayes Phillips
This is a long document. Near the beginning it describes how his geomorphology work trained him to search for anomalous data during statistical analysis.
