This week, Sunday October 28th , 2-4pm Central time, on "VoteRescue Radio - Where Citizens Count, One Vote at a Time", our special guest will be Paul Lehto, election law attorney.
The show can be heard on the radio in the Austin area at 90.1 FM; is streaming live on www.wtprn.com
(for "We the People Radio Network"), AND, can be heard OVER THE PHONE at 512/485-9010!
Paul R Lehto is an Everett, Washington based business law and consumer fraud litigation attorney who has spent the bulk of his time since 2004 on issues regarding elections and democracy. After being an attorney observer during the 2004 elections, Lehto co-authored with Dr. Jeffrey Hoffman a groundbreaking study of touch screens and paper ballots side by side in his home of Snohomish County, Washington that included isolating by serial number machines that switched votes or froze up, and showing that those machines showed huge discrepancies in favor of one party in the nation's closest governor's race in 2004 (settled by an election contest and 129 votes, statewide).
Lehto writes and speaks frequently on election law and politics, and has litigated his own case in the state of Washington to invalidate the purchase contract for the touch screens and obtain a refund for the county; he has appeared along with local counsel in other states such as Kentucky to litigate election contests and other issues on behalf of both Democratic and Republican primary candidates with no confidence in the electronic machines. He is an outspoken advocate who "calls a spade a spade", and says that there is no basis in science or otherwise for any confidence in electronic election results because the votes are counted in secrecy by the government and/or its chosen contractor. He has appeared on a CD with Thom Hartmann, on Air America radio, and in videos available on the internet.
