FBI Refuses to Accept Complaint in White Plains

FBI Refuses Complaint Alleging Ohio Voter Fraud

(by Don DeBar, Dec 3, 2004) The White Plains office of the FBI today
refused to accept a complaint detailing allegations of compound
felonies of voter fraud, conspiracy and other offenses in connection
with the Ohio conduct of last month's presidential election.

A group of election activists called Transparent Democracy -
including civil rights attorney Michael Sussman, Greenburgh town
supervisor Paul Feiner, and four others - attempted to present the
complaint at noon today while dozens of protestors carried signs
outside supporting the call for an investigation.

The smaller group was denied access to the FBI's Westchester offices
at 222 Bloomingdale Road in White Plains. Organizer Nicholas Mottern
had previously arranged with the office to present the complaint.
However, when they arrived in the building's lobby, he and the
others were informed by building security that the FBI had
instructed management not to allow them access to the Bureau's
offices, and that the FBI would not send a representative down to
the desk to accept the complaint.

In response to the Bureau's action, Sussman, Feiner and Mottern
signed into the building register and left the document with the
desk clerk for delivery to the Bureau. A local cable news station
later reported that the FBI refused to accept delivery of it.

In response to the Bureau's actions, the group called another rally
for Wednesday, December 8 at noon to demand that the Bureau accept
the complaint and investigate the allegations of fraud in time to
prevent a possible theft of the election. Wednesday's rally will
likewise take place at 222 Bloomingdale Road in White Plains.

Video of the attempted presentation of the complaint, and some
footage of the rally, is available at
