    Ohio secretary of state accuses voters of "frivolous conduct"

    Voters who have filed lawsuits to contest the vote fraud in the 2004 Presidential election have been labelled as "frivolous" by the Ohio secretary of state. Kenneth Blackwell is the Ohio secretary of state, and was also the co chair of the Ohio Re-elect Bush/Cheney campaign, so there is an obvious conflict of interest. He has now requested a protective order to prevent him from having to tell the truth about what happened in Ohio.

    "...to prevent him from having to tell the truth about what happened in Ohio."

    You might be interested in what Kerry's lead attorney on the ground in Ohio, Daniel J. Hoffheimer, has to say.

    "The Kerry-Edwards campaign has found no conspiracy and no fraud in Ohio, though there have been many irregularities that cry out to be fixed for future elections. Senator Kerry and we in Ohio intend to fix them. When all of the problems in Ohio are added together, however bad they are, they do not add up to a victory for Kerry-Edwards. Senator Kerry's fully-informed and extremely careful assessment the day after the election and before he conceded remains accurate today, notwithstanding all the details we have since learned."

    Repeat "The Kerry-Edwards campaign has found no conspiracy and no fraud in Ohio..."

    So, it would seem he is telling the truth.

    And remember that post about the guy who supposedly wrote some software to switch votes from Kerry to Bush? Well surprise, surprise, turns out he's a fraud.

    "For weeks, say sources at various levels of the formal investigations into the voting irregularities, Mr. Curtis has promised them corroboration of his accusations — even if it was just the statement of someone to whom he said, in 2000, ‘hey, this guy just asked me to write a vote-switching program.’ These sources say they’ve received no such corroboration, and certainly none has been presented publicly."

    The leaders of both political parties now say there was no voter fraud in Ohio but I bet you won't post that.

    If there was no vote fraud in Ohio, then why exactly does Blackwell need a protective order so he doesn't have to give evidence?

    Since there was no voter fraud Blackwell is correct in stating these people are acting frivolously. Why should he have to answer questions about a non existent problem?

    Remember, John Kerry, the loser in all of this, also says there was no voter fraud.

    By the way, the recount is over and guess what?

    Yep, Bush still won.

    The recount shows Bush winning Ohio by 118,457 votes over John Kerry, according to unofficial results provided to The Associated Press by the 88 counties. Lucas County, home to Toledo, was the last to finish counting.

    Please could you answer the point raised?

    I will repeat it for you:

    If there was no vote fraud in Ohio, then why exactly does Blackwell need a protective order so he doesn't have to give evidence?

    I'm not too interested in what partisan officials say.

    "[A]n additional 93,000 voters had gone to the polls yet machines had registered no preference of theirs for President. Only a manual recount can tell us for sure what happened to those 93,000 ballots.

    "[O]fficials in Franklin County admitted a computer error on Election Night had tallied 4,258 votes for Bush in a precinct where only 638 people voted. That correction alone will drop Bush's margin by 3,620.
