Rover had been that sure, until that eleventh hour, that Connell's elaborate system would effectively hand victory to yet another Republican president.
The shift was as sudden and accomplished as the vote jumps at 11:15 p.m. in Ohio on Election Day in 2004 that subtracted 400,000 from Kerry's total--poof!
The Ohio attorneys' filing also includes the contract signed between Blackwell and Connell's company, GovTech Solutions, and a graphic architectural map of the secretary of state's election-night server layout system.
In late October, in response to the filing, according to Fitrakis in a recent email, "we are waiting for the court to rule on the state's motion to dismiss parts of the case and proceed immediately to trial.
"As for Rove--initially we're just trying to depose him to see what he knows. Ultimately our goal is to discover enough evidence to name him as the architect of the ongoing criminal conspiracy that election theft represents in Ohio and the nation."
Fitrakis is skeptical that the trial will lead to a settlement, because every state office in Ohio is controlled by Republicans; Rove will do his best to avoid testifying under oath, he said.
"He's hired high price law firms to get out of taking a deposition just as he did with Conyers in the U.S. Congress [avoiding two subpoenas by the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee]. Rove will use all levers of influence from criminal investigation by his friends in the FBI to any other means to avoid being held accountable for what he did in Ohio in 2004."
Magisterial IT expert Stephen Spoonamore, who joined the Fitrakis team as key witness in September 2008, studied the system and supplied the suspected conclusions on how exactly the heist was accomplished, translating them into language we all can comprehend, backing up his conclusions with the diagrams supplied in the latest filing.
