Do new Ohio recount prosecutions indicate unraveling of 2004 election theft cover-up?

by Bob Fitrakis & Harvey Wasserman

Three criminal prosecutions in Ohio's biggest county have opened with strong indications that the cover-up of the theft of the 2004 presidential election is starting to unravel. Prosecutors say these cases involve "rigging" the recount in Cuyahoga County (Cleveland), where tens of thousands of votes were shifted from John Kerry to George W. Bush, or else never counted. Meanwhile, corroborating evidence continues to surface throughout Ohio illuminating the GOP's theft of the presidency. According to the AP, County Prosecutor Kevin Baxter opened the Cuyahoga trial by charging that "the evidence will show that this recount was rigged, maybe not for political reasons, but rigged nonetheless." Baxter said the three election workers "did this so they could spend a day rather than weeks or months" on the recount.

Jacqueline Maiden, the county election board's third-ranking employee, faces six counts of misconduct involving ballot review. Rosie Grier, the board's ballot department manager, and Kathleen Dreamer, an assistant manager, are also charged. All three are on paid administrative leave, and are being supported by the county board of elections.

The county prosecutors do not allege vote fraud. No do they say mishandling the recount affected the election's outcome.

But Cleveland, which usually gives Democrats an extremely heavy margin, was crucial to Bush's alleged victory of roughly 118,000 votes out of 5.5 million counted. Some 600,000 votes were cast or counted in Cuyahoga County. But official turnout and vote counts varied wildly and improbably from precinct to precinct. Overall the county reported about a 60% turnout. But several predominantly black precincts, where voters went more than 80% for Kerry, reported turnouts of 30% or less. In one ward, only a 7% turnout was reported, while surrounding precincts were nearly ten times as high. Independent studies indicate Kerry thousands of votes in Cuyahoga County that rightfully should have been counted in his column.

In the Cuyahoga case, the poll workers are charged with circumventing state recount laws that require a random sampling of at least three percent of the votes cast in a given precinct, to be recounted by hand and by machine. The prosecution charges that the workers instead hand picked sample precincts to recount that they knew did not have questionable results. Once they were able to match those recounts with official results, they could then do the rest of the recount by machine, in effect rendering the entire process meaningless. "This was a very hush operation," said prosecutor Baxter.

Support the Holt Bill!

We have the opportunity to make sure that we don’t lose anymore votes in 2008. Congressman Rush Holt is introducing a paper trail bill in Congress, but its success depends on the support from other lawmakers this month.

Together let’s make sure that Congress prioritizes our votes and restores confidence in America’s electoral process. Tell your representative to co-sponsor Congressman Holt’s bill.


Pass Rush Holt's Bill

I think I put this in the action's forum, but it goes here too. We need to curb the corruption!

Well, it's finally over. They got away with it simply by destroying the evidence.

Link: In Violation of Federal Law, Ohio's 2004 Presidential Election Records Are Destroyed or Missing

Two-thirds of Ohio counties have destroyed or lost their 2004 presidential ballots and related election records, according to letters from county election officials to the Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner.

The lost records violate Ohio law, which states federal election records must be kept for 22 months after Election Day, and a U.S. District Court order issued last September that the 2004 ballots be preserved while the court hears a civil rights lawsuit alleging voter suppression of African-American voters in Columbus.

The destruction of the election records also frustrates efforts by the media and historians to determine the accuracy of Ohio's 2004 vote count, because in county after county the key evidence needed to understand vote count anomalies apparently no longer exists.

"The extent of the destruction of records is consistent with the covering up of the fraud that we believe occurred in the presidential election," said Cliff Arnebeck, a Columbus attorney representing the King Lincoln Bronzeville Neighborhood Association, which filed voter suppression suit. "We're in the process of addressing where to go from here with the Ohio Attorney General's office."

"On the one hand, people will now say you can't prove the fraud," he said, "but the rule of law says that when evidence is destroyed it creates a presumption that the people who destroyed evidence did so because it would have proved the contention of the other side."

Old news, but still interesting and a very poor excuse of an explaination:

It appeared in our local Republican owned and published newspaper - The Dayton Daily News on Wednesday May 11,2005 on page - A 2.

Milwaukee --- A task force looking into potential voter fraud on Election Day said Tuesday that it found more than 200 felons voted illegally and more than 100 instances of people voting twice or using fake names and addresses.

The investigators found hundreds of fraudulent votes in all and counted 4,600 more ballots than registered voters in Milwaukee ---but did not uncover any proof of a plot to alter the outcome of the hotly contested presidential race in Wisconsin's largest city.

They also found ballots cast using the names of dead people.

Prosecutors have not filed criminal charges in the probe.

I no longer subscribe to the Dayton Daily News or its sister paper - The Middletown Journal.

I will be tickled pink when Cox has to stop the presses and close the doors and all the Common-Tators will have to join the non working stiffs who have lost it all. Maybe they can be outscorced to other countries where the citizens knows more about whats happening in our country than we do.

Crap the Bastard stole 2000 and no one did shit. 2004 three fucking years ago no one has done shit. Perhaps when the fucking bastard blows up some American Cities and declares Martial Law y'all will get up off you fat McDonald's Asses and do something. However I doubt it.

Screw 'U',

TuT :lol: :lol: :lol:
