Velvet Revolution Launches Campaign to Protect Elections and Prosecute Rove
August 15, 2008

Velvet Revolution (VR) is working with Ohio election attorneys Cliff Arnebeck, Bob Fitrakis and Henry Eckert to discover the truth about recent information indicating that Karl Rove was the architect and director of a strategy to manipulate elections through the use of computers.  Rove's cyber guru, Michael Connell, has worked for the Bush family for over 20 years and helped Bush Sr., Jeb and Bush Jr. "win" their elections using his computer skills. Whistleblowers, including a Republican cyber security expert, say that several of these and other national elections have been rigged through various invisible and illegal means, including vote tabulation manipulation, improper partisan use of the Justice Department to target Democrats and uncooperative U.S. Attorneys, and the laundering of hundreds of millions of corporate dollars funneled into fake advocacy groups directed against Democrat candidates running for public office. Ex-Alabama Governor Don Siegelman has stated publicly that Rove was the person who directed Siegelman's rigged election and criminal prosecution. GOP cyber sleuth Stephen Spoonamore has stated publicly that the leadership of the GOP has been "lying and stealing elections" and doing so through computers.

According to the attorneys, Rove's goal with this strategy is to establish a unitary executive branch with a supportive judiciary, a weak legislature and a fearful press. Corporate sponsors of this strategy, such as tobacco, energy, telecom, and pharmaceutical companies, are rewarded with hands-off government, deregulated oversight, stringent limits on class-action damages, and the stacking of high courts with pro-business/anti-consumer Justices.

VR's campaign is in support of the Ohio attorneys' use of a federal civil lawsuit in a new legal strategy of taking targeted discovery and depositions of those who have been identified as being involved with, or having knowledge of, Rove's "CyberGate," including Rove, Michael Connell, Jack Abramoff, Michael Scanlon, Bob Ney, Brett Rapp, Ken Blackwell and others.  The attorneys intend to file a racketeering lawsuit, under RICO, against those identified in this case and will refer any proof of criminal activity to both state and federal authorities for criminal prosecution.

This legal strategy will require significant resources for lawyers, expert witnesses, videotaped depositions, public relations, and investigators.  The attorneys will need to go toe to toe with the top lobbyist law firms, which will be hired to represent these targets.  One of those targets is the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has spent close to a half billion dollars on lobbying since George Bush was inaugurated.  The attorneys assert that Rove has used the Chamber to bankroll many of the illegal attacks by using fake front groups posing as advocacy organizations. The attorneys will need to respond immediately to what we expect to be a smear campaign by those implicated in this attack on democracy. Press and FEC reports show that Rove and Connell are now working for the McCain presidential campaign.

Are these people now working for John McCain because they have promised him a win no matter what? The "Protect Elections, Prosecute Rove" campaign will ensure that McCain knows exactly what these people have done and hold him to his promise of a clean election.
Your support is needed for the campaign to succeed.
