Here is Sheri Myers’s open letter to Howard Dean, who, last year, was the very first of the would-be Democratic nominees to make a public issue of the touch-screen voting machines. Now he’s gone AWOL on the issue. Why? He needs to deal with it again, and fast-

FAXED TO DNC HQ: (202) 863-8174

Dear Chairman Dean and the DNC,

Got your newsletter: “Democrats will take back the House and the Senate in 2006. Send money.”

I’d love to help out, but I can’t bear to witness more pure hearts breaking because of election fraud. Apparently the DNC refuses to take it seriously, so here’s what I’m going to do – because for me, it’s dead serious.

I’m going to $upport Bob Fitrakis for Ohio Governor, because Bob’s going to talk about election fraud every chance he gets. He is the incredible attorney/journalist/activist who led the citizen investigation of the Ohio Vote Fraud. Author of “How George W. Bush Stole the 2004 Election.” and editor of the Columbus FreePress.

BTW, (no surprise to anybody) Fitrakis is a Green.

I’m going to send $ to John Bonifaz, who’s running for SOS in Massachusetts. I really believe he should be President – ASAP. This is the guy who created and the National Voting Rights Institute, who wrote “Warrior-King: The Case for Impeaching George W Bush” and will institute the Voter Bill of Rights,

I’m going to ask all my vote-loving pals to sign the petition supporting the Rush-Holt bill, immediately. Now there’s legislation that should have passed YESTERDAY.

Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) has introduced a bill, S. 1975, The Deceptive Practices and Voter Intimidation Prevention Act of 2005. I’m calling Senator Boxer to stand with him. This could put lots of Repug thugs on notice for the 2006 election.

Chairman Dean, how are YOU going to lead?

I don’t want to read any DNC decrees. There’s a war being waged by the Republican touchscreen companies to eat up our Democracy. THIS IS AN EMERGENCY. I know you’re aware of this.

I saw you Dr. Dean, you sat there with Bev Harris, and she showed you how easy it was to hack the vote. “Whoa!” you said. I know you have Mark Crispin Miller’s excellent “Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election & Why They’ll Steal the Next One Too.” AND I know Rev. Jesse Jackson put you with Bob Fitrakis to hear about the Ohio Fraud.

Where’d you go, Howard??
You know we’ve already lost Ohio to Diebold Republicans?
Doesn’t Ohio figure in your master plan to take back the White House?
What about Florida? No? Don’t need that state either?
I’m sure you know that North Carolina just caved and certified Diebold, didn’t you?

And California, about be railroaded by SOS McPherson into buying bad machines. That okay with you, too?

Not a penny, not one phone call, not one online electron will I give to the Democratic Party until you seriously address the fraudulent election process that caused us to lose the last election.

Get the DNC on board, get some guts and get it done.

Onward, as sincere as they come,

p.s. And just to show how sincere I am, I’m asking 1000 of my vote-loving web friends to substitute their names and fax this letter to you at the DNC, (202) 863-8174, give $$ to Fitrakis and Bonifaz and ask all their friends to do the same.

No Comments to “Calling Dr. Dean….”

  • Thanks

    I’m going to spread this as far and wide as I can.

  • Hurray!

    It’s one little step for voterkind!

  • Okay — I’ve rewritten the letter a bit and faxed it to Dean. If you who want a quicker, shorter method, go to
    Right under the “y” of Party, click on “Contact” and send an email.
    “It’s almost too late! Don’t you realize yet that the counted votes count, not the voted votes? Election fraud is the only real issue!”

  • You guys are a riot!


  • Hey Howard, you want to join up with this fever swamp crowd and take the Dems completely over the cliff and into the abyss? Fine by me.
