Trouble in Ohio ….already

Blackwell purged Ohio Voter Rolls Oct 1st.- Vote Early.

Wed Oct 18, 2006 at 05:59:14 AM PDT

A
friend, in a position to be present at lunches of GOP insiders here in
DC called me on Thursday, they know of my ongoing efforts to make
hackable voting end.

My friend was present as a group of Moderate GOP members with Ohio ties
lamented how far the party had strayed.   There was consensus at the
table there was no way they should retain control.   The table
conversation began with the assumption they party would lose control in
this election. The moderates started planning how to take back control
of the GOP from the extremists.

Then, one insider, probably an extremist, but certainly very close to
Mr. Ken Mehlman abruptly stopped the conversation.  He told table that
it was impossible they would lose either house.    He also predicts an
Ohio GOP sweep.

More Below.

He
informed the group that over the last year, in four critical states the
GOP needs to hold huge purges of the voter rolls have just been
finished.

The insider did not say which four states, but did say Ohio was among them.

His claim was a new Diebold voter registry system had been installed
over the last year.   The last week of July and the first week of
August a “test run” was made of the systems ability to purge
 ineligable voters.   The purge generated names and test letters sent
out to 1.2 million Ohio addresses with a focus on University’s,
Apartment addresses with high turnover.   He claims they made the
letters seem just functionary, but they have an action component to
avoid being purged from the rolls.

The Insider warmed and said that Blackwell was brilliant in how he did
this.  The letter went on for a long time about changes in Ohio voting
and security and suggested people who might have any concerns about
their voting status could come by county offices and confirm their
continued voting eligability before election day.    

He further added, that since it was conducted as a “test” they only
sent letters to a limited number of suspect addresses and “I suspect
Blackwell chose criteria very very favorable for us.”

Further the insider stated that Blackwell had only purged the lists
after a full 60 days was given for people to respond.  Which means even
if a voter was on the “termination” list, they would still have been
eligable to vote in the primary.

He told they table they believe the purge has probably caught up
“hundreds of thousands of students, activists and wanderers with no
real job” would show up at the polls and have to vote provisionally.

He predicted to the table that tens of thousands of voters will show up
on election day, and once the provisionals are used up will simply not
be able to at all.  

He also said that this “operation” (The Insiders word, my friend was
specific about this” had turned up a lot of additional fascinating
information including a number of Democrats in elected office who are
registered to vote in several places, and they may explore how to use
this information against them.

I am going to assume, Mr. Blackwell’s “test” purge went to no-one
registered GOP.   His criteria is something I am trying to get a copy
of now.

Friday I called friends in Lorain County and Wayne County Ohio.    I
told them this DC tale.   Neither of them had voted yet and I asked
them if they could go on Monday to either early vote, or apply for an
absentee ballot.  And if possible sit for in the Elections Office for
an hour and determine if anyone was expressiing surprise they were no
longer registered.

If the sample of 11AM-1PM in Lorain County Ohio and 10AM-11AM in Wayne
County Ohio are true.  Then Ohio Democratic Voters had better go and
Vote Early if they plan to vote at all.

At Lorain County, my friend arrived to find a line of over 15 people,
many of whom had come back for a second time, all of them Democrats who
had arrived to vote and been told that Drivers Liscence Information, or
in one case Home Ownership Information had not matched the address
provided for Voter Registration.  

In one case a college student had been purged because he had changed dorms on campus.

In another case a local blue-collar worker had been purged because his
voter registration had only his building address, but his drivers
liscense included an apartment number.   This tiny difference in
information had led to his purging.

While everyone present seemed to have enough information to allow the
records to be updated, my friend told me it was being done by one and
only one clerk and was taking a very long time, about 5 minutes per
person to resolve.   Everyone in line confirmed that several voters had
given up in frustration and left.

In Wayne County the sample is smaller, but during the one hour he
stated 18 people arrived for absentee ballots or to vote early.   Wayne
County had 3 Diebold TSX Touch Screens set up for early voters.   Of
those who arrived two of them had been provisionally purged.  The first
was again a student from a local college, she was sent away and told
she had to bring some ID beyond her student ID to prove she was
resident at the College.  She was wearing a Sherrod Brown button.   The
second was a local guy who owns two houses on the same block.    His
drivers liscence is to the one house where he keeps his cars, but his
voter roll is in his house where he actually sleeps four houses away.
 This got resolved with a series of steps that included filling out two
forms, and a clerk having to enter the corrected information into two
seperate computers.    

As an added bonus, My friend listened in and witnessed 8 retired ladies
getting instructions on how to be poll workers on the new TSX machines.
 The instructor was a local elections board member.   She was asked
many questions by one of the retirees and her answer to almost all of
them was “I don’t know how it works, I just know how we are supposed to
use it”

Get ready Ohio.

This story also may explain Mr. Blackwell’s sudden discovery of the
“two homes and is he really a qualifed Voter” now facing Strickland.

This Blackwell discovery of Mr. Strickland is actually “by-catch” of
the much larger net thrown to eliminate hundred of thousands of
democrats from the voting rolls.

ACTION:  Get to your election boards, bring all the documentation you
can.   Demand a paper absentee ballot.     Alert a everyone you know in
Ohio.

Good luck out there.   This doesn’t eliminate the fact your Diebold
System is utterly hackable, but it certainly explains how Rove plans to
drag all your races into the margin of error so hitting the Diebold
Button to steal the election doesn’t look so obvious.  

He has taken away your right to vote based on any piece of mismatched information in your state records.

I would expect that would be nearly everyone if the test was applied
across the board.  But I suspect it was not done that way by Mr.
Blackwell.

It might be worth other states starting to look at this issue as well.

They are very much in love with the power they have my friends.   I am
increasing afraid this one one ends as another of my friends now says
very often:  “By Feeding the Tree of Liberty.”

I think I have a better theory.

When I want a friend of mine to hear what I’m listening to I invite them over .

We might smoke a few bong hits. We might talk about other things. maybe a few drinks are consumed.

Eventually, it goes like this:

Me. hey! Have you heard Tapes on Tapes? Check this out….

(I put on the CD.

My friend HEARS it

So far, MOG hasn’t got the idea of sharing music beyond what we can do with YOUTUBE. You can explain it and try to be Lester Bangs writing about The Velvet Underground…while he’s fried out of his mind…which, so far, ONE MOGGER is….

.OR….you can  post a YouLube thingy. …and say, “Hey! Check this out!”

I think what MOG needs to have is a way for us to say….”Hey! Check this out!”

If they can do THAT…They’ll be rolling in dough  in the near future. No site has done that yet….made it that personal. Maybe this will be the site.

For now, YOUTUBE provides that option better than anyone.
