MAPPED: Voter Caging, US Attorneys

During November 2006, I created a map of voting irregularities reported from across the country. During the weeks before and after the election my small staff and I created an incident-by-incident map of voter fraud, voter suppression, and cases that were taken to court in the weeks after the election. (Red map marker points represent cases that were being argued in court during the time period of October 20 - Nov. 20)

Last night, I created a map of 7 of the 8 attorneys fired by President Bush.

I noticed a pattern: In the western states where the attorneys were dismissed, none of the election irregularities reported in the media were prosecuted.

Keep in mind that November 15-17th was the "call the Bush-leads and let them know these people are being fired" target date.


Also, after doing more research, I noticed that many of the attorneys fired were appointed by President Bush himself.

This is how I believe that the Bush Administration felt they could get away with what they'd done. The Bush Administration line that has been parroted to everyone is this, "They serve at the discretion of the President. If the President could hire them, then, the President has the power to fire them as well." The fact that all but one of the attorneys fired were appointed by Bush leads me to believe that this chain of events was premeditated, planned intricately, and executed with utmost disrespect for our Constitution.

The eVoting relationship
Take a closer look at this map here. (For you Firefox users, this is the time to start opening links in new tabs.) This is a map of eVoting irregularities, machine malfunctions, and other related problems.

Each of these incidents should have immediately been addressed by the courts and/or local elections officials. Many of them were not, despite lots of evidence that fraud had, in fact, occurred.

Take a look at Florida and Ohio, in particular.

This was organized voter suppression on a national scale.

Look at the dates the attorneys were being fired and the Senators/ "Bush-Leads" were being notified. November 15- 17th, 2006. Just days after the election.

No US Attorney to bring suit = no nasty corruption cases in court = no justice for America.

Even if any of those attorneys wanted to prosecute, they would not have had time to do so, because most were preparing to lose their jobs. It's hard to bring a case when a prosecutor is going to be fired, is fired, or there is no US Attorney in the district to bring charges.

For this, I strongly assert that Bush MUST be indicted for treason, fraud, corruption, obstruction of justice, perjury, conspiracy and collusion.

The pattern is all too clear. It needs to stop.
