Important Action Memo from Marc Baber and Sheri Myers Concerning Extreme Voting Anomalies in Ohio 2005

This is a much better summary of why the stolen 2005 election in Ohio is important to everyone in the U.S. (and the world for that matter).
Sheri hits the nail on the head when she says we've got to start pressuring the media and she provides hundreds of contact e-mails below
for doing just that. Please take some time and let these members of the mediacracy know that their silence is truly deafening and can only
make them irrelevant.

Let them know that, hey, it'd be nice if they'd report the news, but we can get it from (which is raising funds this week, BTW).
I, for one, no longer read the local paper or watch television. I read, listen to AirAmerica (KOPT 1600 AM in Eugene) and
monitor the so-called mainstream by checking periodically.

Not only is the election system rife with fraud, so are the news organizations that enable these abuses by turning the other way and ignoring
what should be the major stories of our time.

Bush is at 37% approval and falling... Keep it up. You are all making a difference.

My Friends,
Please share this with anyone who was sickened by the results of the last Presidential election, who was outraged by the criminal behavior of Secretary of State Blackwell in Ohio...

This is a painful reminder that the voting machine situation in Ohio is worse than ever. We MUST ALL take Ohio personally and demand reform. The battle-weary activists there NEED OUR HELP!! They put their hearts and souls and hope on the line to institute election reforms, and got robbed. (See stats below)

DON'T FORGET -Our Democratic candidate HAS to win Ohio to take back the White House!! For Paul Hackett to win an Ohio Senate seat, his votes have to be counted on Diebold touchscreen machines.

Around the country, the Democrats are organizing for 2006. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE VOTING MACHINES???


Email Mike Curtin, associate publisher and senior editor of the Columbus Dispatch:

"I urge you to investigate and report on the staggering anomalies between your paper's polls before the 2005 election and the official results."

Check out these stats from Brad Friedman, of Bradblog:

The Staggeringly Impossible Results of Ohio's '05 Election...
...As Half of Ohio's Counties Fire Up Blackwell's New Diebold Electronic Diebold Voting Machines
Is this the Election that will finally break the camel's back?

Simply put, the polls published in the historically accurate Columbus Dispatch just two days before the election, matched almost identically on the one ballot initiative supported by Ohio's Governor Taft, but the 4 that called for Electoral Reform? Didn't synch up by a long shot:

ISSUE 1 ($2 Billion State Bond initiative)
PRE-POLLING: 53% Yes, 27% No, 20% Undecided
FINAL RESULT: 54% Yes, 45% No

ISSUE 2 (Allow easier absentee balloting)
PRE-POLLING: 59% Yes, 33% No, 9% Undecided
FINAL RESULT: 36% Yes, 63% No

ISSUE 3 (Revise campaign contribution limits)
PRE-POLLING: 61% Yes, 25% No, 14% Undecided
FINAL RESULT: 33% Yes, 66% No

ISSUE 4 (Ind. Comm. to draw Congressional Districts)
PRE-POLLING: 31% Yes, 45% No, 25% Undecided
FINAL RESULT: 30% Yes, 69% No

ISSUE 5 (Ind. Board instead of Sec. of State to oversee elections)
PRE-POLLING: 41% Yes, 43% No, 16% Undecided
FINAL RESULT: 29% Yes, 70% No

Award-winning editor of the Free Press, Bob Fitrakis warns us in his article about the very recent 2005 elections in Ohio:

"And thus the possible explanations for the staggering defeats of Issues Two through Five boil down to two: either the Dispatch polling - dead accurate for Issue One - was wildly wrong beyond all possible statistical margin of error for Issues 2-5, or the electronic machines on which Ohio and much of the nation conduct their elections were hacked by someone wanting to change the vote count....

If the latter is true, it can and will be done again, and we can forget forever about the state that has been essential to the election of every Republican presidential candidate since Lincoln. And we can also, for all intents and purposes, forget about the future of American democracy."

Here's Bob's article in full...




"ON OCTOBER 20, 2005 the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) released its 107-page report [PDF] confirming what many of us have been reporting for what seems like forever: That electronic voting machines are not secure, are hackable, and employ secret software that is frequently neither certified nor adequately inspected."

Silence: Mainstream Media Completely Ignores GAO Report, Joint Congressional News Release on E-Voting!


"With 44 of Ohio's 88 counties for the first time using Electronic Touch-Screen Voting Machines last Tuesday -- most of them the same Diebold, Inc. machines that were decertified in California -- you must take a look at the extroarindarily inexplicable results of the 4 ballot initiatives that would have reformed voting in the Buckeye State and removed Sec. of State J. Kenneth Blackwell (a hard-right Bush partisan) from elections entirely."


Media List from Independent Media Resource
and several other sources...

-- Ready to copy and paste, I have separated the rows of addresses as a
reminder to send in smaller groups to avoid alerting spam-cops.

-- Other contact info of some MSM at bottom of lists (phone numbers,
addresses, etc)

-- Sometimes many return "failed delivery", sometimes not so many. And I'm
sure some are permanently inactive addresses.

-- Also, cross-check with:

-- And I have started the list with C-Span since they have been an important
media ally at times:;;;;

I've also added at the top here a few DNC addy's - including Ohio Dems...;;;
