To Catch a Thief

Check out this report from The Free Press: The 2004 Presidential Election: Who Won The Popular Vote? An Examination of the Comparative Validity of Exit Poll and Vote Count Data. This is an interesting read on the controversial election night polling data. Remember that the media has refused to release the raw data to Congressman Conyers’ Congressional Committee.

Here is another interesting read from The Black Commentator: No Holiday for Vote Thieves. It says in part (checkout the Salon interview with Conyers noted below):

“The Dean of the Congressional Black Caucus is confident that at least a few U.S. Senators will join House members on January 6 to question the fairness of the November 2 election. John Conyers, Jr., the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, told he doesn’t believe the Senate will repeat its performance of four years ago, when Black lawmakers sought in vain for one senatorial objection to 'official misconduct, deliberate fraud, and an attempt to suppress voter turnout by unlawful means' in Florida, as Congressman Alcee Hastings (D-FL) put it at the time.

‘No, I think the Senate is going to go along with an inquiry this time,’ said Conyers. ‘I don't think they would embarrass themselves to let this happen two times in a row… I just don't think the Senate would get caught in that position.’ Conyers is careful not to name names, claiming he hasn’t spoken directly to a single Senator, but adding, ‘there are Republicans who support what I'm doing who haven't been willing to come forward.’”

Who in the U.S. Senate wants to be treated kindly by history?
