Grounds to Unconcede
Election Challenge likely on Jan 6th

Dunne, Editor EXCLUSIVE
you haven't been following John Kerry closely, get ready to hear of
surprising developments. The vote-defrauded, potential president-in-waiting
has just indicated through his lawyer that the validity of George Bush's
reelection is no longer a given.
Files Motion to Protect Ohio Vote Evidence
MSNBC has released
the full Dec. 24th statement by Kerry lawyer, Daniel Hoffheimer:
" Kerry-Edwards will support the third-party candidates in asking
the Federal Court in the Ohio recount lawsuit to order the preservation
of the evidence obtained during the recount and to expedite discovery
of the facts. Various problems and errors have occurred in a number
of Ohio's 88 county boards of elections during the recount, which
will conclude next week. The most publicized of these problems was
the machine manipulation in Hocking County but developing evidence
will reveal other problems as well. Senators Kerry and Edwards are
very concerned that the law for conducting the recount should be uniformly
followed. They want to be sure that all circumstances
involved in the Ohio election, including the recount, should be put
before the Court and disclosed to the American people.
Only then, can the integrity of the entire electoral process and the
election of Bush-Cheney warrant the public trust."
On 23 December, 2004 Kerry's
lawyer confirmed to MSNBC's 'Countdown'
that John Kerry will be seeking (likely
on Monday 27 Dec.) to expedite court proceedings and secure evidence
in an ongoing recount
suit by the Green and Libertarian parties. That might sound like
just another "count every vote" exercise by the Kerry campaign,
were it not for two important details.

filing will conjoin him to existing allegations
that Triad GSI, a Republican-linked
supplier of voting machines to around half of Ohio counties --"orchestrated"
a covert campaign to thwart a legitimate recount in Ohio. If the allegation
proves well founded, it could invalidate
the Ohio recount and eventually even hand the presidency to John Kerry.
Kerry compared to Gore
Electronic voting +4.52%
Non-Triad punch cards +2.43%
Optic scans +0.05%
Triad punch cards -0.95%
Triad alone cost Kerry
102,000 votes. more
Which probably explains
the second critical detail: a quiet, on the record bombshell statement
to 'Countdown' by Daniel Hoffheimer, the Cincinnati lawyer representing
the Kerry campaign in Ohio.
Previously, the Kerry
Campaign's intent in Ohio seemed to be merely an exercise of American
Two weeks ago, when Kerry
wrote to Ohio's 88 county boards of election asking to visually
inspect some ballots, Donald McTigue, the lawyer handling the recount
for the Kerry campaign said:
"We're trying to increase the transparency of the election process."
In early December, when
the Kerry Campaign joined
a suit by Green and Libertarian party candidates seeking a recount
in Delaware County, Daniel Hoffheimer said Kerry wasn't disputing
President Bush's victory in Ohio. The aim was to make sure any recount
was "done accurately and completely," Hoffheimer said.
MSNBC 'Countdown' reports
the same Hoffheimer, in comments on their imminent filing in the Ohio
recount, concluding their call for a scrupulous recount with this
"...Only then can
the integrity of the entire electoral process and the election of
Bush/Cheney warrant the public trust."
That's the first time
the Kerry Campaign has impugned the legitimacy of Bush's reelection.
It's a signal move,
likely driven by emerging
evidence of suspicious activity by representatives of Triad GSI
during the recount in Ohio. Evidence which has led a senior Democrat,
ranking House Judiciary Cmtee. member, John Conyers Jr. to
accuse Brett A. Rapp,
the boss of Triad GSI of orchestrating
a criminal conspiracy to pervert the outcome of the Ohio recount.
The allegations first
surfaced before an extraordinary
Ohio hearing convened by Conyers on behalf of Democratic Minority
members of the House Judiciary Committee. An affidavit
filed by Sherole Eaton, Hocking County deputy director of elections,
stated that a Triad representative had told her "how to post
a 'cheat sheet' on the wall so the ...count would come out perfect
and we wouldn't have to do a full hand recount of the county."
That account has been
corroborated by other officials and by
extracts from a video documentary in which a Triad technician
admits that the company was in possession of computer "backup"
copies of the official election data.
If the recount was
fraudulent, does that have implications for the validity of the first
count in Ohio? The Kerry campaign knows full well that it does. That's
why their latest statement questions the "integrity" of
the "entire" electoral process. And the election of Bush/Cheney.
For Kerry, a fraudulent
recount in Ohio could be an open door into to the Oval Office. Already,
John Conyers is
confident that a few U.S. Senators will join House members on
January 6 to question the November 2 election. On Thursday, the Chicago
Tribune reported that in a conference call with journalists Jesse
Jackson said that Kerry had conceded the presidential election "much
too soon. Before all the facts were in."
But don't expect Kerry
to quickly rush to a microphone in order to unconcede. He doesn't
have to. His unconcession will take effect by default.

Audio Clips and more details
If the Ohio recount is
shown fraudulent, the domino effect could carry him through that door
without claiming victory or even unconceding.
Simply by allowing Bush's
claim on the Office of President to fall --piece by fraudulent piece.
Nudging the dominoes to topple in the right way.
Thus leaving Kerry, poised
to step into office over the Bush debris.

More Slick Moves On Election Fraud
Under cover of John Edwards' late night promise to "count
every vote," Kerry's lawyers have been adeptly pursuing evidence
that could reverse the election outcome, while keeping their candidate
so Teflon-coated that he remains untouchable by "sore loser,"
or "conspiracy theory" jibes.
In the last few days, Kerry has launched a further escalation
of his legal involvement, while also leaving casual observers
even more convinced that Bush is safely ensconced in office. It
was yet another political dance routine with Kerry's now familiar
two steps forward, one step back footwork.
