Conyers Wants to Know

Here are three great, must read letters from Rep. John Conyers, Jr., chair of the house judiciary committee. The first is written to Ohio Secretary of State, Blackwell, questioning him on a myriad of Ohio election irregularity complaints. Here is another version of the same letter, sans the legalize.

The second letter is a follow-up to the first one, raising additional concerns.

The third, and my personal favorite, is a letter to Warren Mitofsky, who conducted the exit polling for the National Election Pool, asking him to answer concerns and to appear at a forum in Washington, D.C. This is the now infamous exit polling that showed Kerry leading in several swing states that he ultimately lost.

The letter reads:

"As you are well aware, many questions have been raised regarding the discrepancy between the early exit polls conducted by the National Election Pool and the final result of the election. Specifically, just after noon on November 2, numbers were reportedly released showing that Senator John Kerry was leading in several key states such as Florida and Ohio, by a three percentage point lead late in the day. As we now know, these numbers are at odds with official results.

This discrepancy is objectively problematic and raises serious concerns about voting irregularity. While reasonable minds can differ as to the latter theory, the only way to restore complete legitimacy on this election is to have an independent firm conduct a detailed analysis of the data, including the raw data taken at the polls early in the day.

Indeed, exit poll data is now being used by Administration officials to evaluate the legitimacy of the election in the Ukraine. As Secretary of State Colin Powell stated, “We cannot accept this result as legitimate because it does not meet international standards and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse.” Powell recently called for “a full review of the conduct of the election” and tallying of results. Such an inquiry into the legitimacy of election results should be a priority of our country as well.

I discovered this interesting report claiming to be from an anonymous RNC official (supposedly with a conscience). It states authoritatively that Kerry actually won the election by at least 1.7 million votes.

He writes:

The truth about this election is this: Florida and Ohio had to go for Bush in order for him to "win" the election. In reality he lost both states. In fact, he did not even win the popular vote. He lost the national popular vote by at least 1,750,000. This shows you the scale of the fraud.

It ends with:

“So this will all come out and be known to everyone. Nothing this massive can be kept a secret. You’re already beginning to see the “irregularities” and the whisper will become a roar."

From his mouth to God’s ears…
