Both parties are comfortable with the condition of our elections or it would have been dealt with long ago.
They are like Coke and Pepsi - while they advertise that they offer something different, they are hard to distinguish and they are also happy with their own market share. They will work together when necessary to keep Dr. Pepper out of their game.
The author of the blog is doing a lot of good work and some serious research, but it all means nothing. The politicians don't care and the most anyone reading it all will do is tire about half way down and send it in email to a bunch of friends. Those friends will forward it to friends and it will roar around cyberspace for a while then burn out on re-entry.
What would anyone do with this - take it to the Justice Department, or maybe Homeland Security?
I sent the link and brief description to Col. West yesterday morning. I don’t know if he saw it/read it, but it wasn’t too long before I heard he had asked for a recount. He also asked a judge to put the ballots & machines under security (not the exact phrase, but that’s what he meant), but the judge turned him down. I don’t know how widely known this procedure is, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt for other areas (especially those that had over 100% of the population voting or other glaring errors) to check the tabulation of their machines.
When I watched the video of Mr Curtis several things bothered me. So I did a little checking.
I had seen it linked to as fairly recent testimony. I knew it couldn't be because Stephanie Tubbs Jones is no longer living. I discovered that this is from 2004.
I couldn't figure out why there was applause for a witness testifying under oath. Especially testifying that he was willing to engage in fraud. If my sources are accurate, this hearing was conducted because the Dems were accusing Bush of stealing Ohio votes from Kerry. And it was attended by Dem members of the US House Judiciary Committee at the urging of John Conyers about vote suppression. That explains why Maxine Waters was in a hearing conducted in Ohio.
I was puzzled why there seemed to be smiles and celebration at times. Turns out Mr Curtis (Dem) was preparing to run against the politician (Pub) he accuses in his testimony.
I have no idea about the accuracy of Mr Curtis' testimony. I am certainly not accusing him of lying. I am concerned though that a video of Dems interviewing a fellow Dem (who may have an agenda) may not be the smoking gun it seems to be. If my sources are accurate, Pubs didn't attend the hearing. I think we should be careful not to get punked by something that may have been a dog and pony show.
