The GOP is taking center stage in the theatrical drama of the 2008 election cycle. Like the children's tale of Chicken Little and The Sky is Falling, Acorn registrations dropping on our heads from everywhere... and everyone is upset. Mutant tree nuts have run amuck in Ohio falsely registering to vote, and then voting. The Ohio GOP wants to look at all the new voter registrations across the state, for those who registered and voted in the five days that it was available by Ohio law on September 30 - October 4. Hunting new voters, what a pathetic way to show patriotism. With over 660,000 new voters, that is a lot of potential hunting. Should they be properly processed, yes, should we panic and create new rules to stop citizens of the US from voting, no.
The Ohio Democratic Party has been sitting in power over the office of Ohio Secretary of State and Ohio Attorney General since January of 2007. For the most part all the same criminals that stole the 2004 election are still running this years election. No one has gone to jail. Everyone is sitting happy with blinders, ear plugs, and a muzzle. See no crime, hear about no crime, and whatever you do, don't speak about it nor prosecute. No matter how blatant the crime, the Democrats blissfully ignore it at their own risk, and while neglecting the due diligence of the jobs of enforcing Ohio election laws. The repeated statements that "we have to get ready for the next election (so we can't do anything now)" we have heard of the past year, didn't prepare us... reality on the ground shows that we are totally not ready for this next election. Will they now investigate?
Well it's time to turn up the heat, so I'll report on the unfolding elections and offer up some of what the past few months of investigation into the 2004 ballots has uncovered and it's connections with current unfolding events.
When the topic of voter fraud and election fraud comes up, tell people to put in perspective... what about those folks in Ohio and what they did. Ohio had 58 counties that destroyed all or some of their 2004 ballots. Over 1.58 million of them. Each destruction a crime. It hardly compares to a couple voter registrations with made up names... of which no one will likely show up to vote.
Real Fraud: lets start with Coshocton County for today's reporting. They are missing all of their unvoted 2004 ballots (a fourth degree felony), and have over 6,800 votes in the same handwriting for a write-in sheriff candidate. It looks like it actually could be the hand writing of 3 or 4 people... thousands of times. This is real fraud, the kind that should matter and make newspaper headlines. I've let the current Sheriff Tim Rogers know. He is the man the crime was committed against. Also the request for investigation went to Brian Green, attorney for the Ohio Secretary of State. So far nothing has been done, but reports from Tim Kettler, a State Senate Candidate this morning are that Sheriff Tim Rogers is going to investigate. They spoke on October 15, 2008. Don't hold your breath, but do pray for us.
Below are two letters requesting a serious legal investigation, one to Brian Green, Elections Council for the Ohio Secretary of State, the other to Coshocton County Prosecutor Bob Batchelor. More reports on Ohio and our current election will be unfolding.

Re: Voter Fraud in Coshocton County Sheriff race, and public record request

Dear Brian Green,
I write today to find out the status of your investigation into the Coshocton County vote fraud that happened in the 2004 sheriff race where Timothy Rogers was the candidate with his name printed on the ballot, and there were reported to be 6,864 write-in votes for David Corbett, who had formally been the sheriff in the year 2000. The vast majority of those appear to be election fraud, with a very small sprinkling of actual votes mixed throughout the ballots. During tabulation, each one of these ballots had to be examined and the name of the write-in candidate read from it. This happened at the election, at the recount, and I understand, ballots were recounted between the election and the recount. Yet not one election official there spotted what I spotted within looking at my first 10 ballots, very easy to see voter fraud. The same handwriting shows up repeatedly in thousands of write-in votes for candidate David Corbett. Actually I would guess it is the handwriting of a couple people, and a serious real legal investigation is needed. Timothy Rogers won the race, but this crime was committed directly against this incumbent sheriff for the benefit of a former sheriff, yet mysteriously current Sheriff Rogers doesn't seem to care. I've contacted him.
