The Black Well of Justice

Another rally: "On December 12th 2004 at 12 noon, before the steps of your State Capitol and the Federal Capitol, join with us to protest the theft of our votes and our voting rights in the 2004 election. As citizens, it is our duty to protect those basic rights that insure the survival of our democracy and constitution for present and future generations of Americans. Egregious infringements of our voting rights occurred in the 2004 election: our voting systems were compromised and our votes violated. The line was crossed: we no longer trust our voting systems. As citizens, we must stand together"

Also check out the Voter’s Bill of Rights on the bottom of this page. Great ideas.

Four Lucas County, Ohio employees have been suspended with pay. A Republican election board member said the four suspended are two supervisors and two clerks. He said, "I don't expect it will change much of anything in terms of results. It's just some internal procedures that appear to be not right..."

"Change much of anything?" Please describe “much,” “anything," and "right.”

What do drugs, overdose, voting fraud, and Mary Poppins have in common? Sure this makes perfect sense: Felony indictments for falsifying ten registration forms with names that would only be unnoticeable to the mentally retarded, but not even a slap on the wrist for Ohio Secretary of State Blackwell who steals tens of thousands of votes. White-collar crime pays off again. Massive voting fraud? Hey wait, look over there!

And speaking of the infamous Mr. Blackwell, it appears he has imposed a lock-down of public voting records. The story reads, “On Friday December 10 two certified volunteers for the Ohio Recount team assigned to Greene County, Dayton were in process recording voting information from minority precincts in Greene County, and were stopped mid-count by a surprise order from Secretary of State Blackwell’s office. The Director Board of Elections stated that ‘all voter records for the state of Ohio were locked-down, and now they are not considered public records.’”

“Ohio Revised Code Title XXXV Elections, Sec. 3503.26 that requires all election records to be made available for public inspection and copying. ORC Sec. 3599.161 makes it a crime for any employee of the Board of Elections to knowingly prevent or prohibit any person from inspecting the public records filed in the office of the Board of Elections. Finally, ORC Sec. 3599.42 clearly states: ‘A violation of any provision of Title XXXV (35) of the Revised Code constitutes a prima facie case of election fraud within the purview of such Title.’”

Now may we please indict Blackwell? Now will someone please arrest his law-breaking ass? Is there any justice in this country? Is enough, enough?
