FYI, this press release re: Georgia’s citizens and voting integrity groups filing suit for electronic voting rights violations comes via Al Kolwicz, Director of CAMBER, CO and Republican Canvas Board Member for Boulder County., CO. As we know, Al runs and posts updates religiously re: the considerable shenanigans occurring in Colorado’s voting systems at www.blog.coloradovoter.com .
Al is a tireless champion for election integrity who is doggedly fighting some of the most entrenched corruption in the country in Colorado with its strong ties to the underbelly of election engineering. This, via corrupt former CO Secretary of State Donetta Davidson, now a Bush-appointed Commissioner on the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), which is poised and positioned to be given final rights of arbitration nationwide for all recounts and audits post-election, on the local, state, and federal levels… not a good thing.
It is a fact that Davidson has jailed candidates who dared to contest questionable elections. We have had some of them on radio telling their tales. Also, former CIA Director, Admiral Bobby Ray Inman, who maintains covert involvement in election engineering with 4 of his fellow former CID’s maintains close connections with CO Gov. Bill Owens. Any relation to Adm. Bill Owens, close friend and key man (Special Aide) to Chen ey and Carlu cci of the Carl yle Group, who are all also involved in election engineering? From what we can see, Gov. Owens seems to systematically run calculated interference whenever there is any attempt at real transparency and accountability in Colorado’s voting systems.

Georgians to File Lawsuit Asserting E-Voting Rights Violations
ATLANTA, GA – A new, diverse, non-partisan coalition of Georgia voters
announced today that it will file a lawsuit on behalf of all nine million
current and future Georgia voters to seek relief from Georgia’s existing
implementation of electronic voting. Representatives of the group, known as
VoterGA, explained that current statewide voting cannot be verified, audited
or recounted. They contend that because no direct physical evidence of voter
intent is ever captured by the machines, fraud and errors are now virtually
Prior to 2002, about 82% of Georgians used optical scan and punch card
equipment to cast ballots that could be verified, audited and recounted. The
2002 statewide E-voting implementation reduced that percentage from 82% to
zero. Two years later, Free Congress Foundation rated Georgia as having the
worst voting systems and procedures in America. As rationale for the rating,
VoterGA founder, Garland Favorito, posed the question: “If voters cannot see
their own ballot selections, cannot physically verify that their ballot was
ever cast and cannot participate in counting the ballots, how could they be
Mark Sawyer, who is also a member of Defenders of Democracy, explained why
Georgia activists decided that a lawsuit was necessary: “We have been
fighting to preserve basic audit capabilities since the voting machines were
being evaluated and we’ve met every kind of resistance imaginable”.
VoterGA retained Walker Chandler to represent what they believe are the
interests of all Georgians. Chandler is a former Libertarian Attorney
General candidate who has already won a U.S. Supreme Court decision against
the state for unreasonable search and seizure violations of the 4th
Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
VoterGA stands for Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia.
Its supporters include national voting organizations, Georgia civic
organizations, Georgia chapters of national political parties and
unaffiliated concerned citizens. More information can be found at the
organization’s web site, www.voterga.org .
