Listen at Laura Flanders Show. Should be up on archives by tomorrow...
The letter will request investigation into 93,000 spoiled ballots and more.
Apparently, this investigation will involve enough votes "to possibly change the outcome."
Looks like between this letter tomorrow, the hearings (including Mon Dec 13 in Ohio), and the lawsuit, this issue is about to explode on the Main Stream Media.
Calling for a NONPARTISAN audit of the electronic voting machines, having independent analysis of the software.
Reading some reactions over at DU, and someone pointed out this link about Ohio fraud at the local level in 2000. In that article, Blackwell states that: it's up to county boards of elections to investigate voting irregularities, and the secretary of state's office stands by as a resource. Maybe that is why Kerry sent this letter out to the individual Board of Elections rather than just to Blackwell, who would likely just make a paper airplane out of it or something.
Update -- Ohio News Network reporting on the story:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Democrat John Kerry is asking county elections officials to allow his witnesses to visually inspect the 92,000 ballots cast in Ohio in which no vote for president was recorded, a Kerry lawyer said Sunday night.
The request is one of 11 items that Kerry is asking for as part of the recount that Ohio's 88 county boards of election will begin this week, according to a letter sent to the boards over the weekend.
