Here Stephen Spoonamore, under oath, describes the system that Bush/Cheney used to
steal the election in Ohio. He also talks about Mike Connell, who was Karl Rove's IT
guru, and whom the lawyers in Ohio, Cliff Arnebeck and Bob Fitrakis, are moving to
The lawyers want also to depose Karl Rove, Ken Blackwell, Brett Rapp (whose family
--all raging Christianists--own Triad Government Services, which makes the central
tabulators used in the Ohio election), and a range of other GOP officials in the state.
Ohio SoS Jennifer Brunner is opposing their intention to depose these people, arguing
that it should wait till after the election. Sec. Brunner has lately done, or tried to do, a lot
of good on the election front, against fierce opposition by the GOP; but here she's blocking
progress, probably because she fears how hard the other side would land on her if she
okayed the depositions now. (Much of the Ohio press is owned by the Republicans.)
Recently she filed a memorandum to, essentially, prevent the case from moving forward.
Attached here is the lawyers' reply.
Finally, here also is an affidavit from Richard Hayes Phillips, whose Witness to a Crime,
which lays out the astounding evidence of vast election fraud throughout Ohio, I have
done my best to publicize. Here Richard makes an overwhelming case for moving
forward on the basis on Spoonamore's testimony.
