A funeral for the 2004 election

When a group of voter-rights activists holds a "funeral procession" to
mark the three-year anniversary of the 2004 election that they believe
was tainted, they'll be making a stop at the office of Ohio Attorney
General Marc Dann.

The Ohio Election Justice Campaign, which alleges that President Bush
won Ohio in 2004 because of numerous irregularities, is accusing Dann
of failing to follow up on campaign promises to investigate problems
in the balloting.

Specifically, the group points to video of Dann, a Democrat,
addressing voter-rights activists at Columbus State University before
last year's election for attorney general. In the video, Dann says
he'll take seriously any evidence of improprieties in that election
and even will convene a grand jury and bring charges if merited.

Dann seems to have changed his tune, said Paddy Shaffer, founder of
the Ohio Election Justice Campaign.

"No one is being held accountable," she said. "How can you not speak
to the public about something this serious? This is not a trivial
matter -- this is the theft of a U.S. presidential election."

Dann spokesman Leo Jennings III said his boss never vowed to bring
indictments or prosecute the overseers of the 2004 vote. Rather, the
attorney general wants to look at lessons of that election cycle to
ensure that the 2008 election is conducted with the utmost integrity,
Jennings said.

"We're certainly going to look at what happened in '04 to see what
needs to happen in '08," he said. "If we see something that needs to
be brought to the attention of a prosecutor, or for us to handle under
our powers, we'll do it. We don't have any (evidence) in front of us."

Shaffer said her group plans a funeral march on Nov. 2.

What is going on in Ohio is absolutely amazing, inspiring, and in fact
the hard core research done by Richard Hayes Phillips and Paddy
Shaffer humbles me. Phillips has a book coming out, appropriately
titled "Witness to a Crime," in which he details and provides
photocopies of evidence of the vote fraud in Ohio, for the most part,
perpetrated by insiders. Most of these insiders still hold office.
There is absolutely no will among those who hold power to hold them
accountable.
