    Ohio GOP election officials ducking subpoenas as Kerry enters stolen vote fray

    December 28, 2004

    COLUMBUS -- Ohio Republican Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell refused to appear at a deposition on Monday, December 27. The deposition was part of an election challenge lawsuit filed at the Ohio Supreme Court. Meanwhile John Kerry is reported to have filed a federal legal action aimed at preserving crucial recount evidence, which has been under GOP assault throughout the state.

    Richard Conglianese, Ohio Assistant Attorney General, is seeking a court order to protect Blackwell from testifying under oath about how the election was run. Blackwell, who administered Ohio's November 2 balloting, served as co-chair of the Bush-Cheney campaign.

    James R. Dicks, Miami County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, filed a motion to block a subpoena in his county while Conglianese filed to block subpoenas in ten key Ohio counties.

    President George Bush, Vice-President Richard Cheney and White House Political Advisor Karl Rove received notice that they will be deposed Tuesday and Wednesday, December 28 and 29. The trio’s Ohio attorney, Kurt Tunnell, so far claims his clients have not been properly served. Under Ohio law, the Republican-dominated Ohio Supreme Court is responsible for serving the three with subpoenas.

    Meanwhile, the Election Protection legal team has collected new statements under oath describing more voting and vote-counting problems on November 2.

    Voters in Trumbull County have testified that on Election Day they received punch-card ballots where holes were already punched for Bush. Meanwhile, a notarized affidavit signed by Angela Greene, who voted at Whitehall Yearling High School in central Ohio's Franklin County, stated that one of the malfunctioning electronic voting machines at her polling place was delivered without a cartridge – meaning votes cast might have gone uncounted.

    The recount IS over. What they fail to mention is that the election officials broke Ohio law by pre-selecting the precincts to count (it's supposed to be random), that only 3% of the precincts were counted, AND an employee of Triad systems (which runs the election machines) visited several of the pre-selected precincts and "recalibrated" the machines (also against the law), while at the same time offered precinct workers a "cheat sheet" (his words) to be used to help them make sure the numbers matched during the recount.

    This is all documented, by the way, and lawsuits have been filed, but doesn't get reported. It is amazing to me that our voting system is being entirely corrupted and nobody gives a sh*t. Even here.

    And nobody seems to think its strange that the Republicans have fought a recount every step of the way -- except in Washington, where they lost the governorship after the recount, so they're suing to get ANOTHER recount.

    I say count all you want. Make every vote count. In Washington AND Ohio, New Mexico, Colorado, Florida, etc.
