Fellow Investigators and Patriots,

We have Pima County on the run and the local media is waking up. However, the County yesterday asked Judge Michael Miller to stay the case indefinitely until after the completion of a criminal investigation by the Attorney General. The next hearing will be on June 12. The County is hoping that the Attorney General will back the stay filed by Pima County, thus shutting down this civil action and investigation of illegally printed summary reports containing election results during early balloting and analysis of GEMs database files stored in the county's computer system.

I personally fear this is a stalling tactic to keep us from proceeding and colleting more facts that the databases could reveal.

We welcome an AG investigation into misconduct, but NOT if it shuts down transparency, the right of the people to obtain election documents and the lawful duties of oversight by political parties.

Since the primary of 2004, the Pima County Elections Department has consistently been peeking at and printing the election summary reports that reveal who is winning and who is losing as many as 8 to 9 days before an election. This report by law is not supposed to be printed till one hour after polls close. In his filing Bill Risner pointed out that now we know from an election audit of the November 2006 election supervised by Monitor Cleveland State Professor Candice Hoke, that election department employees in Cuyahoga County Ohio also printed actual summary reports in advance of the election.

What we're uncovering could have national consequences, by supporting emerging evidence that the printing of central tabulator summary reports could be a common and widespread practice by county Election Directors throughout the nation. Pima County officials have known about the back door in the Diebold/GEMS Election Management System (EMS) since 1996, and what they learned and did then wasn't in the Diebold's EMS manual.

We have requested ALL the databases since May 17 1998. There about 700 to 800.


We also now have many other people to depose in this case.

As Bill Risner said in court;" if needed, they have the right to take the 5th."

Let the people's case go foward.

Hope, Peace and Democracy

RTA lawyer: It's too late to challenge vote
Dems, Pima seeking probe of possible rigging
By Andrea Kelly

ARIZONA DAILY STAR

The attorney for the Regional Transportation Authority said Wednesday that it is too late to legally challenge the results of last May's election, even if an investigation determines votes were electronically changed to reverse the outcome.

The statute of limitations for such a challenge expired nearly a year ago, said attorney Thomas Benavidez.

Pima County and the Pima County Democratic Party have asked the state attorney general for an investigation into whether there was any electronic flipping of the votes during the RTA election, at which voters soundly approved a 20-year transportation plan and half-cent sales tax to pay for it.
