Kerry revives 2004 election allegations
AP & boston.com ^ | 8-28-06 | David Hammer

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.

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,

If you want to win, run in October when no one else is running. You might have a chance.

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!

Some more Democratic voter fraud in Wisconsin:

From Charlie Sykes talk radio web log:
http://www.620wtmj.com/_content/talk/charliesykes/index.asp?

A Democrat running for state office votes in Chicago and a suburb of Milwaukee. Facing possible felony charges.

Two problems: Riley didn’t 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.

Surely it is not unprecedented for a state secretary of state to take a role in a campaign...or am I wrong?

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.

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.
