100,000 Uncounted Votes In California
and Department of Justice Corruption In Alabama
TAKE ACTION NOW!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------





Sign The Petition Demanding That California Election Officials Count 100,000 Non-Partisan Votes Uncounted Because Of A Bad Ballot!

On Super Tuesday in Los Angeles, the ballot provided to non-partisan voters required that two bubbles be filled out rather than one required for partisan voters. The ballot and the officials in the polling places caused such confusion that nearly 100,000 non-partisan votes have been uncounted because both bubbles were not filled out. The elections officials are now saying that they cannot count the votes because they cannot with certainty determine the voters’ intent. This is wrong since most of the voters voted for a particular presidential candidate. Attorneys from the Courage Campaign, a VR affiliate, sent a three-page letter to the LA County Board of Supervisors calling for all ballots to be counted, in response to Logan's report claiming it would be "impossible."

That letter is here [PDF], and includes this notable graf:
In response to the Florida electoral fiasco in 2000, California voters overwhelmingly passed Proposition 43 on March 5, 2002 which amended Article II of the California Constitution as follows: A voter who casts a vote in an election in accordance with the laws of this State shall have that vote counted. Further, state law clearly states that when reviewing votes and voting systems, Election Code requirements "shall be liberally construed so that the real will of the electors will not be defeated by any informality or failure to comply with all of the provisions of the law." (See Cal. Elec. Code Sec. 19001.)

The group has created an online petition calling on the LA Super visor of Elections to count every vote. Nearly 40,000 people have signed the petition and VR urges all of our members to do so and pass this petition to others. Every vote should be counted.

Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman Was Prosecuted Because He Was A Popular Democrat-Karl Rove Directly Involved
Ties To US Attorney Scandal-60 Minutes Expose’ Gets Blacked Out

Take Action Now!

We have been watching the story of Don Siegelman carefully and working behind the scenes to get it exposed properly. Siegelman was the former Governor of Alabama targeted by Karl Rove and the White House for being a popular Democrat. The evidence against him was fabricated and now scores of people are bringing attention to this sordid case of political targeting, including dozens of attorney generals and congress members. Last night, 60 Minutes ran its own expose’ which was blacked out in parts of the US including Alabama. Our partner at BradBlog has the whole segment here for those who did not see it, along with all the great coverage by RawStory. http://www.bradblog.com/?p=5738

6. Tell 60 Minutes You Want More:
60 Minutes is interested in doing additional add-on installments of this story. The show’s reporters and producers have much more to tell about the duo of Bill and Leura Canary and the corrupt judge, Mark Fuller. The network has agreed to run one or two more installments if there is interest shown by the public. Please let them know you want more on Fuller, the Canary couple, and the trial itself. Contact CBS here:

New York, NY 10019

EMAIL: 60m@cbsnews.com
Phone: 212-975-3247

7. If you have seen the broadcast:
Then you now know that the key witness against Don Siegelman lied and that the prosecution was aware of it. There is more to the Nick Bailey story too. His brother was threatened with jail time by the US attorney's office (because he is allegedly as corrupt as Nick) if Nick did not testify against Siegelman. Based on the Bailey issue alone, Don Siegelman's conviction should be overturned. Moreover, US Attorney Leura Canary must be fired immediately and fully investigated. To accomplish this, please demand that Congress respond to this corruption of the Justice Department.
