Kerry Preparing Grounds to Unconcede
Election Challenge likely on Jan 6th, 24th Dec, 2004 23:00ET

27 Dec Update:
Kerry 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... 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."

If 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.

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.

Kerry's court 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 civic spiritedness.

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.

Now 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 caveat:

"...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.

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.

In an Ohio voters legal suit, the chief justice of the Supreme Court of Ohio has denied having personal knowledge of a plot to steal votes and has refused an emergency motion to recuse himself from the case.

No Holiday for Vote Thieves

John Conyers, Jr., the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee is confident that a few U.S. Senators will join House members on January 6 to question the November 2 election.

Conyers has thrown a spotlight on GOP vote crimes. How 'high' these crimes can be connected is another story. Those who act in concert with others to violate the Voting Rights Act or related laws should be confronted with the prospect of conspiracy charges in addition to criminal penalties (prison time) for individual offenses. Thatís the way gangsters are brought down, every day.
