Checked In, But Didn't Check Out! 13 Times!
(Is it the White House, or Hotel California?!)
By Brad Friedman on 4/24/2005 4:25pm PT  

RAW STORY beats the competition. As usual.

The Freedom of Information Requests from the Secret Service have come in. And whoops...look what RAW found!

Guckert made more than 200 appearances at the White House during his two-year tenure with the fledging conservative websites GOPUSA and Talon News, attending 155 of 196 White House press briefings. He had little to no previous journalism experience, and previously worked as a male escort.

Perhaps more notable than the frequency of his attendance, however, is several distinct anomalies about his visits.

Guckert made more than three dozen excursions to the White House when there were no scheduled briefings. On many of these days, the Press Office held press gaggles aboard Air Force OneŚwhich raises questions about what Guckert was doing at the White House.

On at least fourteen occasions, Secret Service records show either the entry or exit time missing. Generally, the existing entry or exit times correlate with press conferences; on most of these days, the records show that Guckert checked in but was never processed out.

In March, 2003, Guckert left the White House twice on days he had never checked in with the Secret Service. Over the next 22 months, Guckert failed to check out with the Service on thirteen days. On several of these visits, Guckert either entered or exited by a different entry/exit point than his usual one. On one of these days, no briefing was held.

And then there's this...

Others who have covered the White House say not checking in or out with the Secret Service is unusual, especially in the wake of Sept. 11. The Secret Service declined to comment.
Guckert declined to comment, directing all questions to the Service.
The Service keeps a record of who approved passes only for the last sixty days; previous records are kept by the White House.

Okey doke. Watch for "Executive Privilege" to be invoked any day now.

In addition to their article (which has more details on the above, in addition to the some of the odder sign-in, sign-out sequences), RAW STORY also has the RAW DATA from the Secret Service.

If anyone sees the Mad Hatter, pay him no mind.

Thanks again to Winter Patriot and all of the "6 or 7" BRAD BLOGGERS for your support during last night's BRAD SHOW broadcast! Can't wait until this thing gets easier! As mentioned, this radio game is no easy feat for a novice, especially suddenly, out of the blue and from the road! We look forward to getting back to a homebase where we can really start cooking and kicking some hard ass! (And getting rid of that annoying buzz!)

As well, literally moments before last night's show I received some sad news that a good friend of mine (and a fine BRAD BLOG supporter!) had died suddenly. Didn't help this beginner to get through the first hour or two of the show without being a bit shaky. But having heard at least the last couple of hours of the rebroadcast today (to be available via BRAD SHOW archives shortly!) I think we did okay. Last night's show goes out to my dear, departed friend Aldrich Allen. Godspeed, friend...You are missed.

As mentioned on the air, we've got to get largely off the grid this coming week for some long-planned obligations that will take us to yet another state. If we can get on the air from yet another new location, we will. Otherwise, a rebroadcast or some other devious plan will occcur for this coming Saturday's show.

Either way, we could probably use a few hours sleep, or a day or two or three or four of brain rest. It's been a tough week, month, several months and we better take care of ourselves or we won't be able to continue kicking badguy ass and taking names...And there's plenty more of that to do in the weeks and months ahead. Thanks in advance for your understanding and --- as always-- for your extraordinary support.

We shall continue to overcome!

No, Not Baker...Not His Commission...But Getting Closer!
Bush Appointed Chairman says Commission 'Underfunded', 'Neglected' by Lawmakers!
By Brad Friedman on 4/22/2005 10:36am PT  

Another intellectually-honest Republican is found!

Just in from AP...

The first chairman of the federal voting agency created after the 2000 election dispute is resigning, saying the government has not shown enough of a commitment to reform.

DeForest Soaries, a Baptist minister, said Friday that his resignation from the commission created by Congress would take effect next week.

Soaries, 53, cited personal reasons for resigning and said he wants to spend more time with his family in New Jersey --- but he added the decision was prompted in part by a lack of support for the commission from Congress and the federal government.

"All four of us had to work without staff, without offices, without resources. I don't think our sense of personal obligation has been matched by a corresponding sense of commitment to real reform from the federal government," Soaries told The Associated Press.

Soaries is a Republican who was the White House's pick to join the Election Assistance Commission, which was created by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 to help states enact voting reforms.
Soaries and the other commissioners complained from the beginning that the commission was underfunded and neglected by the federal lawmakers who created it.

And Around the World!
...And the Tribune Syndicate's Bob Koehler does it again!
By Brad Friedman on 4/22/2005 10:21am PT  

So while we're on a seems that Clint Curtis' name and story (even briefly) are popping up in papers all around the country, and even around the world. Good folks (no doubt fine BRAD BLOG readers and patriots all!) seem to be contacting their local papers with letters to the editor to discuss the Election 2004 debacle, and tossing in the relevance of Curtis' story along with it! (See this page for more on Curtis if you need...and if so, where in the hell have you been for the last six months!?! ;-)

So while we spend some hours working on some important things today, please feel free to take the time to jot a letter or two to your local papers. As we hope you've realized, "6 or 7" letters can make a difference.

Some recent examples... Chicago's Northwest Herald in a letter headlined "Election thieves":

Then, there is the complicated story of Florida computer programmer Clint Curtis, who recently passed a lie-detector test on his claim that he was asked by Rep. Tom Feeney, R-Fla., a Bush family friend, to design an undetectable program for flipping touch-screen votes, which he did.

From Nashville's City Paper, in a letter headlined "The most important issue":

Clint Curtis, the Republican whistle-blower who has testified that he was asked by (a current Republican Congressman) Tom Feeney ? who has denied it ? to write a program to hack a vote computer, came and demonstrated to us how it could be done. Curtis also announced that he had passed a lie-detector test about his allegation.

Then in the Ireland's Irish Times last Saturday earlier this week, they ran an article (paid subscription required) which included the following:

The arguments have been given a boost by a story in the St Petersburg Times in Florida, which is sceptical of conspiracy claims, but details charges by Clint Curtis, a 46-year-old computer programmer, that he was asked by a Republican Congressman, Tom Feeney, to come up with an undetectable system to fix elections.

Feeney denied the charge saying: " . . . and I didn't lead the purple Martian invasion of Earth either". But Curtis passed a lie detector test, and the blogs are lighting up again.

And finally, our new friend, Robert Koehler of the Tribune Syndicate, follows up his courageous and frank "Silent Scream of Numbers" piece --- the first that we know of from the "mainstream" to out and out charge that "Election 2004 was stolen" --- with another triumphant home run in his latest column. Titled, "Democracy's Abu Ghraib" the piece asks "If they can disable an election, what's coming next?" Just one of the many worthwhile money quotes:

I never doubted, even after moving to Chicago in the mid-'70s, with the old Daley Machine (?vote early and vote often?) still huffing and wheezing, that elections mattered and could alter the balance of power. I never felt disenfranchised. Now that certainty is gone, replaced by dread.

Read on. Then write on! The march of the "6 or 7" must continue and will prevail! Keep making noise!

    The BRAD BLOG has just received a personal phone call from Congressman John Conyers (not from his staff, but from the good Congressman himself), thanking us for the work that everyone has done on behalf of the nation to get the message through to the Baker/Carter National "Election Reform" Commission that their current make-up and apparent direction is wholly unacceptable.

    Conyers has just finished meeting with Dr. Robert A. Pastor, the executive director of the commission, and has been told that he will be able to continue working and meeting with the commission and it's various members over the coming weeks and months.

    He plans on meeting with former Jimmy Carter personally to discuss some of his concerns.

    As a good faith measure, Conyers has told Pastor that for the time being he would ask us (and you) to direct all Email with concerns or information for the commission to We will shortly change the Email to the Commission page at Velvet Revolution to reflect that address change in similar good faith. We would only do that at the request of Mr. Conyers, and so it will be done. For the time being.

    He will be issuing a full statement concerning his meeting and the commission shortly at ConyersBlog.


    Plans to Meet With Jimmy Carter, Daschle and Others on Commission to Detail Concerns!
    By Brad Friedman on 4/21/2005 12:42pm PT  

    The BRAD BLOG has just received a personal phone call from Congressman John Conyers (not from his staff, but from the good Congressman himself!), thanking us for the work that everyone has done on behalf of the nation to monitor the Baker/Carter "election reform" commission and to seek fairness from it.

    Conyers has just finished meeting with Dr. Robert A. Pastor, the executive director of the commission, and has been promised that the commission and its members will continue to work and meet with him about his concerns over the commission, its make-up and its current direction over the coming weeks and months.

    He plans on meeting with former President Jimmy Carter personally to discuss some of these serious concerns.

    As a good faith measure, Conyers has told Pastor that he would ask us (and you) to direct all Email with concerns or information for the commission to We will shortly change the Email to the Commission page at Velvet Revolution to reflect that address change in similar good faith. We would only do that at the request of Mr. Conyers, and so it will be done. For the time being.

    Conyers will be issuing a full statement concerning his meeting and the commission shortly at ConyersBlog.

    UPDATE: Conyers' full statement is now online.

    Hard Right Media Outlet Actually Runs Non-Hit Piece on Velvet Revolution Concerns!
    (We are definitely through the looking-glass now...)
    By Brad Friedman on 4/20/2005 2:32pm PT  

    The hard-right Washington Times running a fair piece on Velvet Revolution's demands that James Baker leave the National Election Reform Commission? What's their game?...Either way, we're happy to see it...


    We wrote earlier about a newly impaneled bipartisan presidential election reform commission made up of the likes of former President Jimmy Carter, former Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, both Democrats, and former White House Chief of Staff James A. Baker III, a Republican.

    Now, an election-reform advocacy group wants Mr. Baker, who served under former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush, removed as the commission's co-chairman before the panel gets busy on whatever reform it can accomplish.

    Representing about 100 affiliated election-reform organizations, the Velvet Revolution considers Mr. Baker "a partisan political operative and Bush family loyalist" who "will irreconcilably sully the credibility of such a commission and render its findings completely suspect, wholly useless and, regrettably, without merit."

    "Mr. Baker is, in fact, the architect behind the invidious scheme implemented to ensure that the votes of all Americans would not be counted in the unfortunate and undemocratic 2000 presidential election fiasco," says the group, referring to when the soon-to-be-inaugurated George W. Bush dispatched Mr. Baker to voter-challenged Florida.

    The piece above ran on March 31, but we only caught it today thanks to BRAD BLOG commenter, Bushw@cker. Now waiting for the other shoe to drop...

    Dr. Robert A. Pastor Accuses Velvet Revolution of 'Harassment', Sending Fake Email!
    Supplies no evidence for his conspiracy theory, nor his firm belief that Republicans won Election 2004.
    By Brad Friedman on 4/19/2005 10:17pm PT  

    Earlier this evening, we received a phone call from Dr. Robert A. Pastor, the Executive Director of the Baker/Carter National Election Reform Commission.

    It was an interesting conversation.

    Apparently, he was irate at us because Americans are sending Email to him and the commissioners complaining about the fact that James A. Baker, III is co-chairing the Commission. Baker, of course, is the long-time Bush Family loyalist and Bush/Cheney trial law attorney who architected the strategy to ensure that Americans' votes would not be counted in the 2000 election.

    Pastor made it clear that he felt those Emails, sent by individual American citizens to the commission, actually constituted "harassment" and he charged that the thousands of Emails that he and the commissioners were receiving was, in actuality, being sent by "about 6 or 7 people"!

    Velvet Revolution is a coalition of some 100 Election Reform and Voting Rights organizations, none of whom were invited to participate in this commission in any way, nor even knew anything about its creation. VR is co-founded by BRAD BLOG and has created a page where Americans can send Email to Jimmy Carter and the commissioners to let them know how they feel about Baker sitting as Co-Chair and some of his other cronies being seated on this commission.

    If you are not one of the "6 or 7 people" who have already sent Email via that page, feel free to do so now.

    If you are one of the "6 or 7 people" that have sent email via that page, you can let Bob Pastor know that it was really you who sent the email hoping to make your voice heard, by sending him another email to that effect at his email address, (Ed Note: Please write to Pastor for now at - See this later article for an explanation as to why), which is posted on his public webpage at the American University, Center for Democracy & Election Management site. His phone number is also listed on that page if you'd like to chat with him, but we will do him the courtesy of not reposting it here.

    We did our best to make notes of the extraordinary conversation that took place during the phone call as it unfolded...These are some of the highlights...or lowlights as the case may be...

    Reported on Page 17.
    Jimmy Carter expresses concern that 'electoral process' may be 'shot through with fraud'
    By Brad Friedman on 4/19/2005 2:23pm PT  

    A not too bad article on yesterday's Election Reform Commission hearing buried on page 17 of today's Washington Post. Amongst the quotes used from Carter and Baker --- seemingly taken from their unbroadcast press conference held after the hearing --- is this one from Carter:

    "[W]e want to make sure that the electoral process has integrity --- that it is not shot through with fraud."

    ...Well, that's somewhat encouraging to hear. Though a pity that more such discussion did not actually occur in yesterday's hearings (Live Blogged here).

    We've also heard from a reliable source that Carter spoke about "paper ballots" a number of times at that same press conference, and of using them as the counted ballot of record as they are overseas. That's also encouraging...if true...and if he can climb over the mountain of hard-right Bush/Cheney/GOP partisans and voting machine representatives who comprise and stack the commission against such real reform.

    Also of note from the WaPo article was this little turn o' phrase:

    Much of the testimony was anecdotal, with many bemoaning the lack of hard evidence that would indicate how widespread the problems are.

    We're not sure who "many" refers to in the above, nor which "hard evidence" was lacking. We do know that the mountains of existing hard evidence of Election Irregularities from '04 was not presented at all in yesterday's hearings, and that John Conyers --- who presented 102 pages of same --- was not invited to share that evidence with this commission.

    The evidence that was presented, specifically on the strawman argument of "Voter Fraud" and "Voter Registration Fraud" and even "Provisional Voting Fraud" was indeed anectodal, and yet that was the "evidence" that was allowed to be presented to the commission yesterday. We hope that things will change in the next (and presumably last) meeting of the commission, but we are dubious at best.

    The WaPo piece, however, did manage to offer add small bit of refreshing light to the mainstream media blackout on this issue. A few notable passages from the article:

    [T]he first hearing yesterday of the Commission on Federal Election Reform made it clear that the 2004 election was not without problems.
    [T]he academics, advocacy group leaders and politicians invited to testify yesterday provided a dizzying list of electoral problems that might make some wonder how any ballots were counted in November.

    They told of absentee ballots that were never delivered. Of voters who were arbitrarily struck from the rolls. Of confusing and poorly designed ballots. Of long lines at the polls. Of inadequate funds to train poll workers.

    Some complained that polls are frequently inaccessible to wheelchairs. That bilingual assistance is lacking. That there are too few voting machines, especially in minority communities.

    Others asked whether partisan officials ought to be in charge of elections. Whether the country needs a voting holiday to improve turnout. Whether the nation should adopt uniform poll closing times so elections called in the East do not depress turnout in the West. Whether photo identifications ought to be required to vote. And whether to create a "paper trail" for electronic voting machines.

    "Years of inattention and, yes, complacency at all levels of government have given us an election management system that is not up to the task," said Kay Maxwell, president of the League of Women Voters. "We must look more closely at the next steps that need to be taken to bring our election system back to health."
    "In the 2004 presidential election, the United States came much closer to electoral meltdown, violence in the streets and constitutional crisis than most people realize," professor Richard Hasen of Loyola Law School said in his written comments. "Less than a 2 percent swing among Ohio voters --- about 100,000 voters --- toward Democratic candidate for president John Kerry and away from incumbent Republican President Bush would have placed the Ohio --- and national --- election for president well within the 'margin of litigation,' and it would have gotten ugly very quickly."

    Hmmm...It's almost as if the WaPo is suggesting that the '04 Election didn't go quite as smoothly as they, and the other corporate media outlets, have led Americans to believe up until now. Who knew?

    Perhaps they'd like to begin investigating and reporting to the American people on some of the items in that "dizzying list of electoral problems"? America is still waiting...Perhaps we can bump it up to page 15 when that happens. As we like to say, it's only democracy at stake.

    Federal Elections Hampered by Machines

    Federal elections are still hampered by inadequate voting machines, outdated registration and poor training of poll workers despite a 2002 law passed to improve the system, witnesses told a special commission led by former President Carter and former Secretary of State James A. Baker III.

    The system has been improved by the "Help America Vote Act," but "we've still got a ways to go," Carter said Monday.

    Understatement of the Year Award goes to Carter!

    Other than that, however, what's interesting about the article is that the AP got the tenor of the hearing all wrong! But this time, the lazy, inaccuracy of the MSM works out nicely, thank you!

    They didn't cover (for the most part) the continuous drumbeat all day that morphed Election Irregularities/Fraud into Voter Registration Fraud and thus a call for Jim Crow-style Photo ID rules!

    So three cheers --- in this case --- for a lousy, lazy, MSM who seem to have written their report before the event actually took place! Looks like the phoney-baloney "Election Reform" commission may not have gotten their money's worth! At least so far. We're certain the Cybercast News Service and the other fake GOP News Services will shortly lend a hand.
