The above is a video of just one person’s testimony (mine) out of nearly 50 or more who testified for over five (5) hours. Please also go to to get more information about this incredibly historic and hopeful event. More videos of others’ testimony will likely appear on the Bradblog in the next day or two.

This was an absolutely historic hearing. The chairs of THREE very important legislative committees in CA took testimony for over five hours in what was booked as a 3-hour "Joint Informational Hearing - Discussion of Problems Faced by Voters at the 2008 Presidential Primary Election."

The three Democratic legislators who all expressed very, very strong concerns regarding election integrity were:

1. Assemblymember Curren Price, Chair of the Asembly Elections and Redistricting Committee

2. Senator Ron Calderon, Chair of the Senate Elections, Reapportionment, and Constitutional Amendments Committee (formerly chaired by Debra Bowen when she was a senator) and

3. Senator Jenny Oropeza, Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Integrity of Elections.

Two other senators, Mark Ridley-Thomas and Dean Flores rounded out the elected state officials there to find out what the heck is really going on out in the trenches.
