Dead horse? What dead horse?
For those of us who have long thought that the 2004 Ohio election was every bit as corrupt as the 2000 Florida election (if not more so), this is sweet.
Richard Hayes Phillips, statistician and now election reform advocate, in a legal declaration:
Having reviewed a substantial amount of forensic evidence, it is my conclusion that there is direct evidence of ballot tampering in each of the eleven counties whose public records I have examined, and that there is a compelling need to protect the evidence from destruction, presently scheduled to take place on or shortly after September 2, 2006. The Court should order all Boards of Elections to continue to preserve and protect all ballots, poll books, voter signature books, and associated records from the November 2, 2004 election until a suitable repository is found for their permanent preservation.
I will get to reading this later this week, and, hopefully, include some of what I glean from it in my election systems blog.
A little background: These ballots were scheduled to be destroyed earlier this month, but they will be preserved, thanks to these motions that were filed.
This is verrrry verrrry interesting.
