From Steve Freeman:

Mark & Brad:
If you haven’t already mentioned this, could you post something about this Columbus event:

I will be speaking today, Friday, October 13, 2006 in Columbus Ohio as a keynote speaker for the Voting Rights Revival conference.

The conference is organized by Harvey Wasserman. Bob Fitrakis, and Suzanne Patzer of The Free Press. Fitrakis and Wasserman more than anyone – in fact, more than everyone else put together -have uncovered and reported the details of election fraud in Ohio.

Others who will be speaking include Paul Lehto, a lawyer/ investigator/activist from Washington State, Ronnie Dugger, founding editor of The Texas Observer and co-founder of the Alliance for Democracy; Doris “Granny D.” Haddock, who at age 90 walked across the US for campaign finance reform; Greg Moore, executive director of the NAACP National Voter Fund; Harvey Wasserman and Bob Fitrakis, editors of The Free Press.

Tonight, Friday, I will be speaking along with Wasserman and Fitrakis, followed by a showing of “Eternal Vigilance,” a film about the 2004 election and then musical entertainment. Workshops during the day Saturday and Sunday. Saturday evening has speakers plus a showing of American Blackout, Sundance Film Festival winning documentary on the election process in 2000, 2002 and 2004.

I will be conducting a workshop on exit polling.

Other speakers, representatives from several national organizations, workshops and organizing opportunities galore. Sponsors include the Social & Behavioral Sciences Dept. of CSCC, CASE, J30, Ohio Honest Elections, the Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy (POCLAD), and The Free Press.

There is no cost to attend, but donations are accepted.

Location: Columbus State Community College, Nestor Hall

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
