WASHINGTON --Sen. John Kerry didn't contest the results at the time, but now that he's considering another run for the White House, he's alleging election improprieties by the Ohio Republican who oversaw the deciding vote in 2004.
An e-mail will be sent to 100,000 Democratic donors Tuesday asking them to support U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland for governor of Ohio. The bulk of the e-mail criticizes Strickland's opponent, GOP Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, for his dual role in 2004 as President Bush's honorary Ohio campaign co-chairman and the state's top election official.
"He used the power of his state office to try to intimidate Ohioans and suppress the Democratic vote," said Kerry's e-mail.
Kerry, D-Mass., conceded the election when he lost Ohio and its 20 electoral votes. A recount requested by minor-party candidates showed Bush won by about 118,000 votes out of 5.5 million cast. But Kerry's e-mail says Blackwell "used his office to abuse our democracy and threaten basic voting rights."
Multiple lawsuits by outside groups were unsuccessful in challenging Ohio's 2004 election. One case filed by the League of Women Voters is still in U.S. District Court in Toledo. It claims Ohio's election system discriminates against minority voters.
Blackwell, who is black, says the election was run fairly, citing 1 million more votes cast than in 2000 and record turnout among black voters.

This moron will never get over 2004. What an ego.
Kerry forgot to add the word "fraud".
What an odious creature.
The Gore Syndrome strikes again!!!
Kerry is a Viet Nam vet, you know.
UT OH....bette check for 'dead' voters and 'prisoners'....I know the rats love those votes.....
And Kerry's now using the "power" of his Senate office to try to suppress the Republican vote. What a loser.
This empty suit won PA by a smaller margin than he lost Ohio. Lets count the dead votes in Philly and see if Johnny boy still wins.
Kerry: Stick it.
Really? You learn something new every day!
If you want to win, run in October when no one else is running. You might have a chance.
John Kerry was in Vietnam???? I did not know that!!
Yaaawn Cut & Run Reporting for Doody!!
Pray for W and Our Troops
Blackwell, who is black...
John Kerry, Who is Dead
What a goof.
"He used the power of his state office to try to intimidate Ohioans and suppress the Democratic vote," said Kerry's e-mail"
And how did he do that? Did he threaten every Democrat in line to vote?
Did he ask who the person was voting for and then threaten to punch them if they voted for J. Forbes?
This guy is serial. He's Super Serial.
Isn't he essentially saying that if a democrat had overseen the deciding vote in 2004, that he would have won? Talk about voting improprieties!
Kerry's way too childish to ever be potus.
Let's pray that the grown ups can once agian save the country from the simpleton democrats.
Some more Democratic voter fraud in Wisconsin:
From Charlie Sykes talk radio web log:
A Democrat running for state office votes in Chicago and a suburb of Milwaukee. Facing possible felony charges.
Two problems: Riley didnt live in the district (which includes the East Side and South Side suburbs); and apparently engaged in voter fraud.
He is running on the slogan A Democrat who will vote like one, which is ironic since it now appears that Riley voted twice in the November 7, 2000 election once in Chicago, and once in Oconomowoc. As recently as September 15, 2004, Riley returned a postcard to the Chicago Board of Election Commissions that confirmed his status as a Cook County voter. But the day before he had voted in Waukesha County, which he did again on November 2, 2004.
IOW, this time he didn't before he did!
>> This moron will never get over 2004. <<
Heck, he never got over Vietnam.
LOL! Theres just something about losing to W that makes people go mental (i.e., algore, max cleland, ma richards & john kerry). Amazing
I don't remember anyone hiring people to slit people's tires like the DEMS did!
hired goons slit tires in Wisconsin for the DNC
That's what I call INTIMIDATION!!!
Get the thorazine. Our boy Kerry is champing at the bit again.
Surely it is not unprecedented for a state secretary of state to take a role in a campaign...or am I wrong?
Wouldn't the Kerryism be:
Blackwell, who is well... black...
Kerry's not going to run again unless Mommy Tereza lets him outside to play with the big boys and she gives him an advance on his allowance.
Ah, well, he could always become the next Minister of Silly Walks.
Hey! Not a bad idea. Why not? LOL
Here ya go........
Kerry has no shame...
HEY! KERRY! The ONLY weird 2004 vote totals in Ohio were perpetrated by DemocRATS in DemocRAT-infested Cuyahoga County. See for yourself in post #26 HERE !!!!
By all means, John, begin your quest for the 2008 presidency by reminding us all of what a whiny little horse-faced, humorless preppy you are.
