Thanks to all you sheep fuck poem lovers who got the goods to Daniel in time for his presentation! William Blake Sheepinator hats are in the works for you.
And now, assignment number seven. This one will make you cry.
From DC correspondent Rod Smith
I am increasingly convinced that this election has been stolen, and I believe
that the first step is to make sure that as many people as possible have the
information that is available. Below are a number of reports, please take some
time to look them over if you haven't encountered them already. There is word
that Kerry is considering unconceding if enough evidence emerges-- that
information is also included below. This is, I think, incredibly important, not
just to us but to people all over the world.
1. MSNBC report:
2. excellent list of links to stories on the questionable election results:
3. from Thom Hartman story at
While the heavily scrutinized touch-screen voting machines seemed to produce
results in which the registered Democrat/Republican ratios largely matched the
Kerry/Bush vote, in Florida's counties using results from optically scanned
paper ballots - fed into a central tabulator PC and thus vulnerable to hacking
? the results seem to contain substantial anomalies.
In Baker County, for example, with 12,887 registered voters, 69.3% of them
Democrats and 24.3% of them Republicans, the vote was only 2,180 for Kerry and
7,738 for Bush, the opposite of what is seen everywhere else in the country
where registered Democrats largely voted for Kerry.
In Dixie County, with 9,676 registered voters, 77.5% of them Democrats and a
mere 15% registered as Republicans, only 1,959 people voted for Kerry, but
4,433 voted for Bush.
The pattern repeats over and over again - but only in the counties where
optical scanners were used. Franklin County, 77.3% registered Democrats, went
58.5% for Bush. Holmes County, 72.7% registered Democrats, went 77.25% for Bush.
Yet in the touch-screen counties, where investigators may have been more
vigorously looking for such anomalies, high percentages of registered Democrats
generally equaled high percentages of votes for Kerry. (I had earlier reported
that county size was a variable ? this turns out not to be the case. Just the
use of touch-scrversus optical scanners.)

Subject: Fw: On Kerry's Brother (lawyer)--Really Important to those in
Florida, Ohio, New Hampshire, New Mexico
Please pass this on to those in these states who might have personal
information to provide.
Everyone! Please forward to all who have specifics on vote fraud. The
send-to address below is John Kerry's brother at his law firm. Kerry
will unconcede if there is solid evidence of fraud. We need first hand
sufferers so please get this info to them!!
FORWARD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW
EMAIL FROM DC LAWYER CYNTHIA BUTLER
I am angry and getting emails and recrimination from people wondering
why KERRY just caved and is not fighting this before the final count in
Ohio,before any of the fraud was challenged, before New Mexico and Iowa
even came in.
There is widespread feeling that he did not lose the election and that
it was taken from him. There is enough here to warrant investigation and
enough to challenge the results. It's coming from all corners.
I understand that he has until the official count certification in
Ohio to Un Concede which is several days from now.
Anyone who thinks that he should unconcede should give reasons why --
whatever they noticed, particularly in Red Republican Governed States
using electronic machines- and send them directly to Cameron KERRY, John
Kerry's brother at his law firm at the address CKerry@Mintz.com
They should inform us if they were not allowed to vote provisionally
(for whatever reason- they lost forms, ran out of forms, etc.) I
personally witnessed a number of things as I reported in Texas with the
DCCC. (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee)
If you know anyone in particular in Ohio who tried to vote and was
turned away at the polls please get their information and notify the
They should be notified if they experienced lines longer than four
hours -particularly elderly or infirm people (we call that torture
when they do it to political prisoners) . They should be notified if
people were told as has been reported that due to too many people
showing up in African American precincts, particularly in Ohio where
there were too few booths (some only had two or three for the entire
precinct) and told because of heavy turn out they could vote on
Wednesday. If the n umbers of these sorts of incidents creates a
percentage margin that exceeds the margin of victory- Un Concession has
to be made to challenge the count.
If people wanted to and tried to vote and were prevented or actively
discouraged from doing so, that is a Civil Rights matter and must be
dealt with in terms of the ultimate count.
This is the last email that I am writing on this subject in this
venue. I am taking it up in other venues.
Please pass along this to your listservs so that we may make Democracy
Work in America. We are not a country where he who cheats best wins.
