Will Karl Rove bury the record of his 2004 election theft? (by Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman)
Edited on Thu Jan-27-11 03:29 PM by bobthedrummer
This is an article that was posted on Online Journal 1-12-11. One of the central figures mentioned is Rove's former "IT guru" Michael Connell (who was much more of a Rove IT operative than Susan B. Ralston).

The 2004 Ohio election was, in fact, stolen-there were whistleblowers and harsh consequences imho as stated in the article: "...the deposition came from the late Michael Connell, Rove's IT guru. Connell died in a mysterious plane crash in December 2008, one month after he spoke under oath to election protection attorney Clifford O. Arnebeck. Connell had implanted the state-contracted software used to compute Ohio's electronic voting tabulations...".

Read the article for yourself

Here's the Source Watch profile of Michael Connell

These criminals, like Karl Rove, are our domestic enemies-they have to be held accountable by the rule of law. One way is to never stop demanding justice when knowledgeable about their crimes-that requires access to information that is being suppressed.

What are your thoughts on this particular Karl Rove et al criminal conspiracy? No one is above the law.

3. Rove's Boulevard of Broken Laws
Numerous Hatch Act violations.
Outing CIA agent Valerie Plame.
Organizing BU$HCO's gang of corporate criminals.
Funneling (stealing) Katrina relief funds.

Just pick one and jail the POS already.

4. K&R for the consent of the governed
A very un-Rethugligan concept.

I do not wonder why.

5. Sorry to be a cynic
"No one is above the law."

That is not true now, if it ever was. Bush and Cheney got away with war crimes. And do you really think either 2000 or 2004 is ever going to come back to bite the Republicans? No. And it's not just IOKIYAR. Obama has continued far too many of Bush's illegal policies. Guantanamo Bay is still open, for Godwin's sake! We're still doing extraordinary renditions. Almost everyone with balls, connections, and cash is above the law.

8. I see you've been here since last October, good that you're posting in a thread like this vim876
I used to be a lot of things too that I regret, considerably beyond cynicism. That was in a previous life, in a manner of speaking. I hope that some of the good old all American never give up/NGU (our rights) attitude shared by a few of US here rubs off on you. Welcome to DU.
:hi:

What an interesting day it is in turning out to be in Egypt where US "private companies" take people that are on lists.

No one is above the law.

NGU.
