This is another great post, Brad, and I am happy to see some promising 'action items' front and center again.
I hope everyone will stop arguing with the so-called attorney for a while and work to make their thoughts and feelings known to the people who are actually in a position to help us.
Please keep up the good work.

Sending the email to key senators through Progressive Democrats is great!
May I also suggest that everyone write to their OWN senators as well.

I would also urge everybody in this forum to email, call, fax, snail mail, Fed Ex or UPS Election Fraud 2004 issues to your Senators & congressmen or congresswomen. Tell them that if they want your vote in the next election they better act. Writing to your local guys is more effective as their job is dependent on you.
Below are the links to the United States Senators & Representatives:

We need to keep up the pressure to avoid a repeat of the 2001 Congressional failure to act when this was advocated last time!

Conyers to object to Electoral College, historical event, but I can't find mention of it in Palm Beach Post, NY Times or Wash. Post . I have contacted them, waiting for reply, perhaps I missed the article, perhaps they are unable to multitask. As for the Senators, I have been emailing them for weeks, I get form notes/letters back, should I do it again, or is twice enough?

I sent the following to at least the list Brad suggested:
I am writing to request that you support Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich, in his effort to debate the irregularities in the Ohio election this year (2004). He is requesting an open debate about the electoral count there.
I have closely monitored the issues and there is something terribly wrong. In my state of California we rejected the voting machines that are incredibly ill advised in their current condition. They beg fraud as currently configured. Until this is fixed we can be accused of having a demockracy rather than a democracy.
Imagine this email from bloggers in Ukrania:
We were once not free and were without elections. We once were communist and called "The Ukraine", but now we have free elections and are "Ukrainia".
Our Constitution says:
Elections to bodies of state power and bodies of local self-government are free and are held on the basis of universal, equal and direct suffrage, by secret ballot.
Voters are guaranteed the free expression of their will.
We mean it. When there are allegations of election fraud in our nation we will not stand for it. Our people, our political parties, and our courts will require fair elections. Our deeds match our words.
We are a democracy and we fight at home first to protect it. You saw us stand up and require a RE-VOTE not a mere re-count.
Does your nation have such political will? We patriots write you because we see your democracy's light getting more and more dim.
In your country 80% of vote counting is conducted by only two companies, Diebold and ES&S.
As to Diebold, it took over Global Election Systems, of which its chief software engineer officiating over the software development related to voting machines has been convicted of computer fraud felonies.
It is said that: "One such felon, a 23-count embezzler named [name omitted], who specialized in computer fraud, was made a director of Global Election Systems in 2000, and then was assigned to be the head of research and development, with access to all components of the most sensitive parts of the voting system. The other, a cocaine traffickernamed [name withheld], has directed the sensitive punch-card printing for both Global and Diebold, and has had involvement with the processing of incoming absentee ballots. Elder is still running the printing division for Diebold."
(http://www.blackboxvoting.org/bbv_chapter-8.pdf, pdf pages 21-22, [book pages 83-84])
One candidate in our pending election was poisioned, and other wrongs transpired. There were cries about "conspiracy nuts" but here we still take elections seriously, and any reasonable suggestions of vote fraud are investigated.
We listened to nuts and dismissed them. We listened to disinformation put out by those calling everyone who complained about the poisioning a conspiracy nut and dismissed them.
We dismissed everything but solid evidence. And we finally had a re-vote, not just a re-count.
Democracy is strong and growing stronger here because valid evidence prevails. We search out the truth.
Follow our example and spread democracy everywhere ... starting with Ohio.
You need to read all of chapter 8 of that web-book (http://www.blackboxvoting.org/bbv_chapter-8.pdf) and then decide which chapter to read next.
Otherwise you are heading in the direction of giving new meaning to "your last election".
We will talk about ES&S in another email.
Patriots of Ukrainia.
Come on Senators, we are only urging that you debate the issue in open for the public. Lets not let Ukrania be the example of democracy while we are the example of demockracy.
