NEW: Did Carville Tip Bush to
Kerry Strategy (Woodward)

By M.J. Rosenberg

James Carville gets on the phone with his wife,
Mary Matalin, who is at the White House with
Bush."Carville told her he had some inside news.
The Kerry campaign was going to challenge the
provisional ballots in Ohio -- perhaps up to 250,000
of them. 'I don't agree with it,' Carville said. 'I'm just
telling you that's what they're talking about.'



New Lawsuit Alleges Ballot
Tampering in 2004 Election
Group says ballots in Democratic
precincts were pre-punched, negating
Kerry votes
September 01, 2006
Jim Siegel

A coalition of critics of the 2004 election is
insisting it has uncovered new evidence of
ballot tampering in Ohio that caused a number of
John Kerry’s votes to get tossed out. The group
filed a federal civilrights lawsuit yesterday, asking
U.S. District Judge Algenon L. Marbley to declare
that Ohioans’ voting rights were violated in 2004 and
to appoint a special master to ensure fairness in
the 2006 election.

to avoid any appearance of impropriety.


Miller Counters

Some Might Call It Treason:
An Open Letter to Salon

By Mark Crispin Miller

Two weeks ago, Rolling Stone came out with
"Did Bush Steal the 2004 Election?" -- a masterful
investigative piece by Robert Kennedy, Jr., arguing
that Bush & Co. stole their "re-election" in Ohio, and
pointing out exactly how they did it. ..One week after
Kennedy's article appeared, Salon posted an attack
upon it by Farhad Manjoo, the magazine's technological
reporter. That piece contained so many errors of fact
and logic, and was throughout so brazenly wrong-headed,
that several hundred readers sent in angry letters, many
of them brilliantly refuting some of Manjoo's misconceptions
and mistakes, and quite a few demanding that Salon
cancel their subscriptions.




Illegitimate Election
A key source for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
responds to criticism of his analysis of the 2004 election

By Steven F. Freeman

Jun. 12, 2006 | Because Robert F Kennedy Jr.
based much of the discussion in his Rolling Stone
article on interviews with me and on a close
reading of my new book, coauthored with Joel
Bleifuss, "Was the 2004 Presidential Election
Stolen? Exit Polls, Election Fraud, and the Official
Count," and because Kennedy cites in his thorough
footnotes many of the same key sources we worked
from, I feel compelled to address directly several
statements that Farhad Manjoo makes about the
exit polls, both in his original Salon article and
in his response to Kennedy's response to that
article -- statements that are either incorrect or
based on misunderstandings about exit polls
and the 2004 results.



A Vast Political Misfortune 

Or Why Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is Correct
in His Assessment of the Late 2004 Election
(which was sadly murdered by the G.O.P.,
may it rest in peace). And Why’s
Article Attacking Kennedy is Wrong. 
By Katherine Yurica




Kennedy’s Challenge:
Salon, Mother Jones & the Tortured Dialogue
On Election Fraud 2004

By Michael Collins
June 14, 2006

The prevailing silence on election fraud 2004 was
interrupted June 1 by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in his article
Was the 2004 Election Stolen? He argues clearly and
forcefully that the 2004 election was stolen, basing his
analysis and evidence on events and outcomes in the
state of Ohio. Had Kerry won the Ohio race, he would
be president today. Hence, the theft of Ohio was the
theft of the election.




A Call for Investigation

Electronic voting machines pose
a grave threat to democracy
A Rolling Stone Editorial

Election officials across the country are currently
scrambling to install electronic voting machines
in time for the midterm elections this fall. The touch-
screen technology, they insist, will make voting
as easy and secure as withdrawing cash from an ATM.




Was the 2004 Election Stolen?

Republicans prevented more than 350,000 voters in
Ohio from casting ballots or having their votes counted --
enough to have put John Kerry in the White House.


Like many Americans, I spent the evening of the 2004
election watching the returns on television and wondering
how the exit polls, which predicted an overwhelming victory
for John Kerry, had gotten it so wrong. By midnight, the
official tallies showed a decisive lead for George Bush --
and the next day, lacking enough legal evidence to
contest the results, Kerry conceded.



"No" Says Farhad Manjoo:

To date, dozens of experts, both independently and as
part of several research panels, have spent countless
hours examining 2004's presidential election, especially
the race in Ohio. Many of them have concluded that the
election there strains conventional notions of what a
democracy ought to look like; very little about that
race was fair, clean or competent.



Punch-card Voting is Illegal in Ohio

Professor: Appellate ruling in Ohio is first in U.S.
to say a state's equipment violates equal protection
By Lisa A. Abraham

The 2002 case, which was decided in December 2004,
was filed against Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth
Blackwell by the ACLU on behalf of voters in Summit,
Hamilton and Montgomery counties. The suit claimed
the use of punch-card voting in some Ohio counties
but not in others violated voters' rights to equal protection
under the law. The suit also claimed the system violated
voters' rights to have their votes counted, and violated the
Voting Rights Act of 1965 by having a larger negative
impact on African-American voters



How To Steal an Election

Las Vegas slot machine, says University
of Pennsylvania visiting professor Steve Freeman.

and regulated than America's voting machines



Third Elections Worker Indicted
Over Presidential Recount
3/9/2006, 5:11 a.m. ET
The third highest ranking employee at the
Cuyahoga County Board of Elections has been
indicted on charges of mishandling ballots during
the 2004 presidential election recount.




Did 308,000 Cancelled Ohio
Voter Registrations Put Bush
Back in the White House?
by Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman
February 28, 2006

As we reported more than a year ago, some
133,000 voters were purged from the registration
rolls in Hamilton County (Cincinnati) and Lucas
County (Toledo) between 2000 and 2004. The
105,000 from Cincinnati and 28,000 from Toledo
exceeded Bush's official alleged margin of victor
---just under 119,000 votes out of some 5.6 million
the Republican Secretary of State. J. Kenneth
Blackwell, deemed worth counting.




None Dare Call It Stolen
Ohio, the election, and America's
servile press
by Mark Crispin Miller
Whichever candidate you voted for (or think
you voted for), or even if you did not vote (or
could not vote), you must admit that last year's
presidential race was—if nothing else—pretty
interesting. True, the press has dropped the
subject, and the Democrats, with very few
exceptions, have “moved on.”




The Silent Scream of Numbers
The 2004 election was stolen - will someone
please tell the media?
Tribune Media Services
The media are not on our side. The politicians are
not on our side. It's just us, connecting the dots,
fitting the fragments together, crunching the
numbers, wanting to know why there were so
many irregularities in the last election and why
these glitches and dirty tricks and wacko numbers
had not just an anti-Kerry but a racist tinge. This is
not about partisan politics. It's more like: "Oh no,
this can't be true."

victory for the Democrat. Within
the pollster's margin of error,
he made no mistakes.

NEW: Malfunction and Malfeasance:
A Report on the Electronic
Voting Machine Debacle

This report surveys four major studies that
reviewed DRE voting machine security and
reliability. Two of the reports involved extensive
review of more than 80 academic, technical,
and industry reports on DREs. Each report
concluded DRE machines to be vulnerable
to malfunction and also to tampering in which a
computer-savvy hacker with minimal access to
the machine could introduce malicious code to
the DRE software and change the results of an election.
