"The cat is out of the bag: the gross exit poll discrepancy,"-the ease of manipulation of DREs, and the reality of grand election theft," wrote activist attorney Cliff Arnebeck of Common Cause, Ohio, a progressive laureate instrumental in cornering Rove machinations to preserve the people's vote more than once.

      Arnebeck is referring to last week's episode of the new weekly ABC TV series Scandal, which, he says, at its beginning pinpoints some of the main targets of the Election Integrity movement, namely vote theft, easily corrupted electronic voting systems, and destruction of crucial evidence of genuine election results. Here is the link to that show: http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/scandal/video/PL55126743/_m_VD55251933 .

     "This does indeed augur elevation of the issue beyond fiction," said his colleague Mimi Kennedy, TV star (Dharma's mom in the prime time show Dharma and Greg, among other roles, and outspoken EI activist and head of Progressive Democrats of America).

      With its pilot episode just a few months ago, April 5, Scandal is "the first dramatic network television series written and produced by an African-American woman for an African-American woman in the lead role" and the first network tv show to feature a female lead in thirty-eight years. Sixty-two years ago, ABC, which airs Scandal, aired the first African American on network TV, Ethel Waters, in the sitcom Beulah.

      The hour-long drama, a "hot new show," was created by Shonda Rhimes and stars Kerry Washington as DC fixer Olivia Pope; both of these network pioneers are rumored to be close associates of President Obama.

      According to Arnebeck, "It's a fictional presentation, but also an artistic composite of the truth for which we have been trying to gain acceptance for a very long time."

      And Spiritual Minded Magazine (spiritualmindedmagazine.com) found that "an average of 7.3 million people watched the finale, according to Nielsen, and 1.8 million African-American viewers viewed the season finale that day. It was the No. 1 show among African-Americans for the week of May 14-May 20, 2012."

      The theme of election corruption will resurface throughout this season's episodes and is expected to go far toward spreading the crucial news where it needs to go, especially when it is picked up on the other social media [as this story will be today--MNS]
