From Michael Collins:
And yet there is more…The record for the day Brian Bilbray was sworn in (June 6), is clear…sort of.

Check the article out. I’m thinking of writing a book called “The Varieties of Election Fraud” after this revelation.

Here’s the answer, ahead of time: Dennis Hastert, Speaker of the House, got the word that Bilbray was officially elected from Ms. Susan Lapsley, Assistant Secretary of State for Elections, California Secretary of State Office…”

This blows away the San Diego Registrars defense against a recount in the pending law suit (decided Tuesday, TOMORROW). The Registrar says there is NO need to recount because the federal government assumed authority and jurisdiction when it swore Bilbray in.

Republican Bilbray allegedly defeated Francine Busby in a close and controversial special election in California’s 50th Congressional District. There were immediate cries of foul and demands for both an investigation and a recount. The problems were well publicized before the swearing in.
