J. Kenneth Blackwell has been subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee, reports OMB Watch:
Congressional Hearings Examine Election Issues

The House Judiciary Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties Subcommittee passed a resolution, with a 6-4 vote, authorizing a subpoena to former Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell for testimony about the 2004 election. On January 29, Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) and Subcommittee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) wrote a letter to Blackwell to "explore the state of voting rights and the allocation of resources to end voter suppression and voter fraud," but he has refused to appear voluntarily. The Associated Press quoted Conyers; "Mr. Ken Blackwell, wherever you are in North America today, please know that we are not sending the gendarme for you this moment," said Conyers. "I do not like to issue subpoenas. ... The only problem is we can never reach him."

Richard Hayes Phillips worked day and night for three
years compiling irrefutable evidence of how the
Republicans stole the 2004 presidential race in Ohio.
This landmark investigation is a testament to what
private citizens can accomplish when government
officials fail to protect our right to vote and to
count those votes as cast. Every American –
Republican and Democrat – should read this book, and
join the fight for democracy’s most fundamental right.

-- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

The experience of the investigators in Ohio shows all
of us how to figure out if, and how, and where ballot
tampering and ballot substitution can take place –
whether at the polls, or during transportation of the
ballots, or after their arrival at a central location.
