  OPEN LETTER: Dig a Little Deeper on the Ohio Recount Story

OPEN LETTER TO THE MEDIA:

Dig a Little Deeper on the Ohio Recount Story


To the Media:

Remember the people that cried foul before the Iraq War, because we had Saddam successfully contained for over 12 years, because Richard Clarke, Scott Ritter and the World said that the war was a bad idea?

Well, we're back. This time trying to straighten out the election in Ohio.

Documented evidence so far in Ohio:

Triad sent a computer hacker to the various precincts where recounts are taking place and told election worker Sherole Eaton to write the number of the handcount on a chalkboard, so that when the 3% of the "random" votes go through the machine the election workers get a head's up and can make sure the number of the handcount will match the computer count exactly. In other words, lie so that you can go home and not have to do a 100% recount. Whether the same statement by said Triad computer hacker was made at all the recount precincts remains to be seen. This is called Fraud.

The "Texas Strike Force" was employed by the Ohio Republican Party to call ex-cons on election day and tell them the "FBI' was waiting for them at the polls. This is called Fraud.

The Warren County lockdown was a complete sham and a lie. The FBI stated categorically that there were no known terrorist threats to Ohio or any other State. The "FBI" agents that showed up on election day are who? This is called fraud.

There were over 80 functioning machines left in a warehouse, when poll workers called repeatedly and asked for more machines. Some people waited 11 hours to vote. This is called obstruction.

The owners and manufacturers of the paperless machines used in Ohio and nationwide are brothers. One of them openly stated that they intended to provide Bush with a victory.

The largest donor to the upcoming $50 million inauguration is a weathy man from Cincinnati.

There are a lot of dots to connect and we are working on it. Why isn't the media?

Republicans blast the Democrats as "hacks" and "tin hat wearers." I guess when the Republicans have their backs to the wall they name-call. I was called "unpatriotic" and "unAmerican" before. I can take the name-calling but consider the source...

I am volunteering with one goal in mind, to secure the vote. I am a 39-year-old, law-abiding mother of two sons ages four and sixteen. I have never been involved in politics or protests and I had never written a letter to the editor until this year. It is about time I did something. That is American!

What's your excuse? Dig a little deeper, please.
