Congressman Conyers Asks Justice Department to Appoint Special Counsel to Investigate Ohio

Congressman Conyers Has Asked the Justice Department to Appoint a Special Counsel to Investigate Possible Criminal Conduct in Connection with the Ohio 2004 Election by J. Kenneth Blackwell.

In this detailed letter, Conyers stated that through the House Judiciary Democrats' investigation, they had learned of "numerous instances of voter intimidation and misinformation,improper purging, caging of minority voters, misuse of Help America Vote Act (HAVA) funds,
voting machine tampering, perjury, and most recently, potential misuse of the federal seal in a
campaign solicitation by Ohio Secretary of State Blackwell. Since this and other apparent
violations by the Secretary of State presents such an obvious conflict for your office, we would
ask that you appoint a special counsel to investigate this matter."
