Plan to File Charges Against Lisa Swartz (BOE-R)!
County Prosecutor Calls BOE Meeting for Monday!
By Winter Patriot on 7/10/2005 10:30am PT  

A BRAD BLOG exclusive. Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

According to a recent statement from Dr. Robert J. Fitrakis:

For those of you following the Sherole Eaton story in Hocking County, Ohio, I spoke with her last night and found out the Hocking County Prosecutor has called for a meeting of the Board of Elections on Monday (tomorrow, July 11). Voting rights activists have already contaced the Sheriff's dept. regarding Lisa Swartz's conducting of an admitted Republican fundraiser while she worked for the BOE. Activists in Hocking County plan to file theft in office and other related charges against Swartz. As most of you may know, the Hocking County BOE is under a temporary restraining order from replacing Sherole Eaton since last Tuesday thanks to Cliff Arnebeck. Cliff and I are working on a permanent injunction to have Eaton reinstated to her job with BOE since she is a whistleblower.

This is the kind of story we watch very closely...

The following excerpt from a supposedly "private" e-mail has been "leaked" to agents of the international press:

To: "Brad Friedman" Brad.Friedman@cville.com
From: "Winter Patriot" wp112263@hotmail.com
Subject: "I wouldn't wanna make a liar out of you..."

... and I DID hear you correctly when you said you can't post on your own blog

so I have turned off all your permissions

temporarily of course --

More Gorgeous BradBlogger Artwork!!
By Steve Viele on 7/9/2005 11:13pm PT  

Guest Blogged by Steve Viele

Many thanks to Joan, who came through for the Silent Auctions with some wonderful contributions of her artwork. (Many thanks to Peg C. as well, for her beautiful Fractal Art contributions which we are selling, rather than auctioning).

What we and Joan are offering for auction are giclee reproductions of some of her work: “The Three Witches” and several other pieces, some of which ex-AG Ashcroft would have draped. I understand that giclee is a method of reproduction that is quite popular now and gives a quality that simulates the original and can be printed on different kinds of canvases (at least I know that her “The Three Witches” is printed on water color paper).

Because this is a fundraiser and because we will have certain costs to get the pieces to anyone who wins the auctions, we will have to ask for a minimum bid of $100 for any of these pieces. I believe there can only be one winner for each piece but we can certainly ask Joan whether more than one giclee of a given piece can be produced if an item is particularly popular.

The auction for each of these pieces is officially open. To make it a silent auction, bidders will need to place their bid by e-mail (please include at least your first name or an appropriate pseudonym) to BradBlogathonFundraiser@yahoo.com (or click here). The auctions on all items will close at noon Pacific Daylight Time (that's 3pm Eastern Daylight Time) on Wednesday July 13th. The winners (if there is at least a minimum bid on any or all of the items) will be posted on BradBlog by about 3pm PDT (6pm EDT) and will also receive an e-mail notification.

Check Joan's pieces out. They are all worthy of your bids but please also remember this is a fundraiser and it is also Brad's Birthday next week. Maybe someone wants to buy one of the pieces for Brad!!!

Guest Blogged by Clint Curtis

INTRODUCTION {by Winter Patriot}: We are indeed most fortunate to welcome Clint Curtis, whose "incredible" story turns out to be just a little bit too credible after all. For those not familiar with the story, here's a quick summary:

Vote-Rigging Sofware Fit For A Congressman

by Brad Friedman

In an affidavit and sworn testimony, Florida software programmer Clint Curtis told members of the U.S. House Judiciary committee that U.S. Congressman Tom Feeney (R-FL) asked him to design a "vote-rigging software prototype". This request, according to Curtis, took place in October 2000 during a meeting at Yang Enterprises, Inc. (YEI), a computer consulting firm in Oviedo, Florida.

Fixing The Intelligence; Breaking The Agencies
By Winter Patriot on 7/9/2005 10:24am PT  


What an excellent group of guest bloggers we have lined up for Sunday! Wow! I get a chance to mention Bob Koehler, Bob Fitrakis and Clint Curtis --- all in one sentence. And we'll all have a chance to blog with them, too.

The standard is getting uncomfortably high. We can't keep raising the bar forever.

We need to lower it once in a while. And there's no time like the present, is there?

Guest blogged by Bob Fitrakis

INTRODUCTION {by Winter Patriot}: On behalf of the BradBlog and the Blogathon I am pleased and proud to introduce Dr. Robert J. Fitrakis. According to his biography at freepress.org, Dr. Fitrakis is a professor of political science and a lawyer. He served as an international election observer in the 1994 presidential elections in El Salvador and as a dual-Ward legal advisor for the Election Protection Coalition during the 2004 U.S. Presidential Election. Dr. Fitrakis is also co-editor, with Steve Rosenfeld and Harvey Wasserman, of DID GEORGE W. BUSH STEAL AMERICA'S 2004 ELECTION? This essential volume is currently available from freepress.org, as well as through The BRAD STORE.

It's great to have Dr. Fitrakis here with us. And I think we can even call him "Bob".
