Ohio Recount update from the Greens

federal judge refuses to uphold temporary restraining order issued by state court; sets hearing on recount for friday
A federal judge today declined to extend a temporary restraining
order against Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb, Libertarian
Michael Badnarik and their legal counsel, the National Voting Rights
Institute, which had been preventing them from seeking a recount of the
presidential vote in Delaware County, Ohio. The judge set a hearing for
Friday at 2:30 p.m., at the U.S. Courthouse in Columbus, Ohio to consider
the matter further.

On November 23, at the request of the Delaware County Board of
Elections, a Delaware County judge issued a temporary restraining order
against David Cobb, Michael Badnarik and the National Voting Rights
Institute, seeking to prevent them from initiating a recount of the
presidential vote in that county.

The state court judge issued the order without first consulting
the candidates or their attorneys.

On November 30, Cobb, Badnarik and the National Voting Rights
Institute asked the federal court to take jurisdiction in the case.

"This is a matter of protecting our rights to participate in the
democratic process and an area in which federal jurisdiction is clearly
appropriate," said Blair Bobier, Media Director for the Cobb-LaMarche

rally to demand recount in Columbus Ohio this weekend 02.Dec.2004 08:39


This Saturday at 1:00 in Columbus Ohio- Jesse Jackson, greg palast will be there!

lots of flyers here

We need huge numbers - is there anyone out there near Columbus- you can help. If just a few dedicated people spent a day or two each spreading flyers and talking to people all over Columbus that could make a difference. People are excited to learn about the vote theft, so spread this news and it will catch like wildfire. Maybe just sticking the flyer on a post is less effective that standing in front of the post office with a few hundred flyers, that way you get people out of their car with mail in their hands, maybe they've got a sec to talk to you.
inform someone today!
