Added Background to the AZ Election Official Arrest

Nothing much I can add but a little background.

John Brakey and I became great pals in the run-up to the 2004 Election in Tucson.

And in the aftermath of that Election, we both sensed that it was stolen, though for different reasons.  I had been following meta-analyses of the pre-polling that showed Kerry winning by about the same percentage that he is “officially” supposed to have lost by.  (I knew meta-analysis to be a sophisticated mathematical method used in science to reliably combine data on the same subject taken by many different methods; these data were not likely to have lied.)  On the other hand, as Democratic Cluster Captain for four polling places in Tucson’s 27th Legislative District, John had encountered poll workers at three of those sites doing irregular things and hiding from him the carbon copies of the poll books to which he was entitled.  By the end of the day, he concluded that those poll workers were up to something.  And John decided to find out just what that something was...

The stories of John’s approach to the forensics of the 2004 Election at Tucson Precinct 324 and my contribution to the analysis of his data are told in my chapter of the new book, “Loser Take All – Election Fraud and the Subversion of Democracy, 2000-2008,” edited by Mark Crispin Miller.  The other chapters of this book are all written by true experts in sleuthing and proving election fraud, so I highly recommend that everyone concerned about election fraud buy a copy (to run it up to the best seller list) and read it through.

Still, the main insight I want to provide here surprised me greatly when I first saw the evidence:  It’s not the Republicans stealing General Elections from Democrats; rather, it’s a neocon/theocon/global-corporation cabal stealing ALL elections – including Republican primaries.  Until this is understood, we’ll have a lot of “good guys” fighting other “good guys.”  Fortunately, Democrats and Republicans in Arizona figured this out – as you can read in this short history.

But it is this video link that absolutely blows my socks off!  Republican member of the Pima County Board of Supervisors, Ray Carroll, with repeated “out of order” support of John Brakey from the back of the room (and a whole room full of aroused citizens!) induced the other four members of the Board to absolutely reverse a decision they had made only hours earlier.  In consequence, the board agreed to release ALL Pima County election-computer data bases, not just the single one already mandated by judicial order.  Watch this!

This was a big, BIG win for all “good guys!”  Thank you, John Brakey.  Thank you Ray Carroll!
