Tell The House Committee On The Judiciary To Investigate Ohio - One Million Emails Needed Immediately!

Rep. John Conyers has been our one friend in congress who has been compelled to investigate the obvious hanky panky that went on during the Ohio election.

He would like to compel the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings about the 2004 election, but he feels he would need a million emails to turn their heads enough to go for it.

Let's give him two million!

Go here:

Type "Ohio Voting Irregularities" in the "Other" box of the form, and then write your own letter, or cut and paste this email in the body of the form, and send it off. (Update: Yeah, the first version of the below letter was corny, so I amended it.)

Estimated time: 30 seconds.

I am writing to urge the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings as soon as possible on the irregularities of the 2004 election.

There were too many things that just didn't add up, including several precincts where there were more votes for Bush than registered voters.

It is important to know exactly what happened in Ohio, and many other states, so that it does not happen again.

With all this in mind, I ask you to take these discrepancies seriously by holding hearings immediately to investigate them.

More thoughts on this from an email sent to me:

Please spread this message among your list of friends and associates.

There's a growing awareness, with increasing coverage now in national
papers such as the Washington Post and LA Times, that we need an
investigation of the voter suppression and other fraud in Ohio and

Like Watergate, this issue will build momentum -- and we, the people, to keep it alive until it can no longer be ignored.

Lisa - what a dope! I pasted the whole indented part of your post into the form. Please un-indent the part that is not to be pasted, in case anyone else is as stupid as I.

if voters were threatened or otherwise intimidated, why did they not file a police report? someone must have witnessed something, and if so, why did they not file on the victim's behalf? do you honestly believe that an election process administered by officials (mostly liberals, by they way) in every level of government and monitored this time by every reporter, cameraperson, and communist UN observer with a heartbeat could possibly have been fraudulent? sour grapes... the incessant liberal "i'm a victim because i deserve what i didn't earn but i'm not getting it" crying game cost you the election... no one like whiners... bush won fair and square - get a grip on reality and "move on..."

Interesting concept, praetorian, this "fair" that you speak of. In every other country in the world, it is not considered "fair" to have the person running the election be the campaign manager for one of the candidates. That's considered "unfair" - it allows one party to decide things like, which registration forms to accept and which to reject; which districts to provide adequate resources and which to withold these resources (so that people give up after 4 hours in the rain etc.) It's also not considered "fair" to have private, and secret, organizations closely affiliated with one candidate in charge of counting the votes. In every other country in the world, that's called "insane". America is really a special place!

Amen, geek of the week. Today my mother got a letter in the mail here in Arkansas telling her that, even though they checked and she was registered and able to vote, her absentee ballot would not be counted because of documentation problems or polling site errors. It's just a slap in the face. I'm trying to find out how many of these were denied and exactly why it happened.

This is a scanned copy of the letter:

Please conduct a full investigation of the voting process. I have no doubt that fraud was committed and we need to prove this to secure our voting rights in the future and to expose it.
