Vote Tempering Alleged In Court

Clifford Arnebeck filed an emergency motion with the Ohio Supreme Court for an expedited emergency hearing and to prevent voting companies and Ohio officials from further tampering with voting machines in the state during the recount, RAW STORY has reported.

Arnebeck, of the Massachusetts-based Alliance for Democracy, has joined with Rev. Jesse Jackson and asked the state Supreme Court to reconsider the election results in their initial suit, accusing Bush's campaign of "high-tech vote stealing."

Included in Arnebeck's motion is a two-page testimony taken in the presence of a court reporter where alleged witness Catherine Buchanan says she was told Diebold reprogrammed voting machines while present at her local Board of Elections. Also included is a letter from an Ohio county election official who stated that test tabulator decks were "discarded" in violation of Ohio law. RAW STORY has acquired these documents and will be posting them shortly linked from our main page.

Ohio Electors May Be Challenged
The ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee told us tonight on Countdown that he and others in Congress are considering formally challenging the slate of electors who cast Ohio’s votes, when those votes are opened and counted before a joint session of Congress on January 6th.

“We’re prepared to do that,” Conyers said. “And we understand the law as well as you.” After the on-air interview ended, the Michigan representative added that he and his colleagues had not yet decided whether or not to take the extraordinary constitutional step, and he had not sought the support of a Senator who would have to co-sign the challenge.
