    Here are three guys that are providing testimony in a court case charging election fraud in Ohio (king-lincoln v blackwell) in the forms of affidavits, and depositions.

    (1) Mike Connell. He was a top republican IT expert who has worked for the Bush family and other republican candidates, and worked for Secretary of State Ken Blackwell on IT in 2004. If there was electronic rigging, this guy would be likely to know about it. There have been a few indications (articles) that Connell has been pressured by Rove to take the fall for rigging in Ohio.

    The lead lawyer for the plaintiffs in the case (the guys that want to show vote fraud) are trying to get a deposition from Connell, but so far there has been a stay on the case. Through word of mouth, Connell appears to know that Ohio 2004 was not clean:

    (2) Stephen Spoonamore. Spoonamore is another republican, worked for the McCain campaign and was founder/CEO of an IT policy and security firm. He provided evidence in July that Georgia's 2002 gubernatorial race was compromised electronically. He is currently an expert witness in the King-Lincoln v Blackwell case in Ohio.

    The Raw Story | GOP cyber-security expert suggests Diebold tampered with 2002 election

    (3) Richard Hayes Philip, presumably a democrat, who wrote

    This guy was very active following the 2004 election, examining ballots and so on. He's got a lot of stuff on the web in terms of lists of discrepancies in ballots and etc, if anyone is interested.

    Cliff Arnebeck is the lead lawyer in the case, and you can read more about this case and some of the witnesses here:

    The stay on the case makes progress hard.

    what happens if they prove the 2004 election was rigged?

    Do they turn back the clock and call a mulligan on the last 4 years?

    I want to know if only to prevent it from happening in the future but other than that, really it can't change anything.

    I would hope there would be serious jail time. I would hope that it would cause proper reform this time, and I would hope that it would help restore more faith between countries, which seems to have taken a nose dive under Bush's governance.

    So Mike Connell, the first "name to watch" in the list above, and who was deposed just before the 2008 election (a deposition which mysteriously coincided with Karl Rove immediately changing his prediction about who would win the election), and who was allegedly intimidated by Rove to be the 'fall guy' for the theft of 2004, and who was warned not to fly (I am just learning some of these details now, don't know who warned him or etc)....

    ... died in a plane crash last week.

    OpEdNews ยป Did Lame Congress Enable Connell Murder?

    Incredible.

    Bullshit. And he is being taken care of. Not supported by all the ideologues as Bush is. If one can prove that Rove and company did 'create' a Bush victory in Ohio in 2004, then maybe that fat treasonous bastard can finally get the accomodations he deserves.

    Please return thread to topic or don't reply. This thread's topic is people who may be involved in electronic vote theft in 2004 and whether there are still vulnerabilities in the systems as the governmental accountability office has reported.

    Mike Connell came under increased scrutiny earlier this year when Steven Spoonamore (also linked to the Bush campaign) said that in conversations, Connell admitted that in his zeal to protect babies he may have compromised Ohio's vote.

    Connell is an IT expert who was at a very high level in the vote counting process in 2004.

    September 29th:

    November 3rd:

    And at the same time:


    Connell was allegedly threatened by Rove to take the fall for the election:

    and evidently some threats specifically involved flying his plane:

    The court case in Ohio is gaining traction over recent months. Connell was called "exhibit A" by the plaintiffs. He was positioned in the party and in the campaigns in such a way that he would have knowledge of electronic vote theft. the vote counting machine for Ohio was in Tennessee, run by the same company that hosted private emails for Bush's administrative people.

    Investigations into the cause of Connell's fatal plane crash are underway.

    I would think (hope) that given the events of at least the last 4 national presidential elections that everyone would be fed up on all sides and willing to bring about real change and reform before we run around the globe telling others how to execute a fair election. Both sides are dirty as sin and this partisan bull shit is laughable. No one owns this topic!

    As someone who speaks to others abroad on a regular basis it is embarrassing and impossible to defend.

    We can and we should do better and each citizen should unconditionally demand it, even if that means crossing party lines, which frankly also would be a blessing!

    There should only be one team - or if there has to be two it should be citizens v government, as a check on the system.

    Consider this: If a crooked politician wants power, what will guide his choice of party affiilation?

    .... I believe the answer is: whichever is in power.
