Fw: Election fraud
- I can't say I believe a Kerry win would have resulted in less Fascism in the
US or the "third world" affected by US policies and warmongering; never the
this president has supposedly gotten a mandate from a group I find
especially repulsive, right wing Christians (sic). I find the idea of
causing as much trouble for these people, as possible, to be extremely

Kerry Can Win Ohio
By the International Labor Communications Association
The media has collapsed and Kerry has conceded, but we don't have to.
According to CNN, Bush is ahead in the count in Ohio by 136,221. According
to the Toledo Blade, Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell has said the
number of provisional ballots could be about 175,000. Blackwell also told
the Blade that in the last election 90 percent of the provisional ballots
ended up being declared valid and being counted, a figure also reported by
CBS News Legal Analyst Andrew Cohen.
There is good reason to believe that the provisional ballots are
disproportionately for Kerry. This is because many of them are the result
of Republicans challenging voters at the polls.
Therefore, Kerry can win, and we need to demand that every vote be counted.
The provisional ballots are expected to be counted in 10 days. Meanwhile,
state law allows Republican and Democratic challengers to examine the
envelopes and to challenge their eligibility to be counted.
We need massive public pressure in Columbus, Ohio, to demand a fair count.
If you can't go to Ohio, call the Democratic National Committee at
202-863-8000 and tell them that you want the count monitored.
Send them an Email on this page:
Write letters to the editors of your local newspapers.
Call your local radio and television stations.
Write or call your Congress Members and other elected officials.
Tell them all we want an accurate count.
In addition, numerous possible cases of Republican wrongdoing in Ohio are
being investigated, and we must be prepared to act quickly and in great
numbers. Various such cases in Florida four years ago were discovered too
There are numerous complaints from Ohio of lines at the polls being longer
in heavily Democratic precincts, also a result of Republican challengers
and part of the Republicans' plan. Other complaints include rejected
registrations, polls not open on time, and voters turned away. See:
Also watch for a related release later today from the Institute for Public
We may also need to demand investigation of the voting machines in Ohio. A
year ago the head of Diebold, the company that produced the machines,
boasted of his intent to help Bush carry Ohio.
Remember what happened in Florida in 2000:
