Electronic Voting VS. Paper Ballots in 2008?

Three Democracy Superstars in Kansas City
to Launch National Tour

Award-Winning Filmmaker, Best-Selling Author,
and Celebrated Attorney to Support Congressman
Emanuel Cleaver's "Paper Ballot" House Bill HR6200

Kansas City, Mo. February 9 Oscar-nominated and Emmy-Award Winning film director Dorothy Fadiman will headline a presentation exploring Congressman Emanuel Cleaver's initiative to require paper ballots in all Presidential elections. Fadiman will screen her new movie Stealing America: Vote by Vote, a nonpartisan documentary on electronic voting irregularities and voter disenfranchisement across America.

Now, Missouri is ready to play a leading role in restoring accountability and transparency to the election process. Cleaver is cosponsoring the "paper ballot" Congressional bill with Rep. Dennis Kucinich. The launch of this important national discussion is in three public events that will include a screening of Stealing America-
a movie The Free Press calls " powerful, moving and infuriating." The presentations are free to the public at 6:30 p.m. on Feb.26th University of Missouri in Kansas City Student Center 5000 Holmes (RM 106) and at 7:00 p.m. Feb. 27th at Flarsheim Hall UMKC (Room 310) and 7:00 p.m. on Feb.28 Royal Hall (RM 104) 800 E.52nd.

The other speakers include:

Steven Freeman, co-author of the book, Was The 2004 Presidential Election Stolen? Exit Polls, Election Fraud, and The Official Count. This book was the basis for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s recent Rolling Stone Magazine cover story. Freeman will discuss the book and his findings.

"Freeman and Bleifuss document the final proof of the most
monumental theft in American history."

- Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Pace Law School

Paul Lehto, America's foremost election reform attorney currently prosecuting 3 landmark election cases, including: The Busby-Bilbray case in San Diego in which election workers were allowed to take home computer voting machines weeks ahead of the election. He will discuss election reform and the pending litigation.

Following the one hour screening of Stealing America: Fadiman, Freeman, and Lehto will each discuss their work. A panel discussion and audience Q & A will follow. Fadiman and Freeman will also be available to sign books & DVDs.
