Mark, is there any possibility of you and other election integrity advocates speaking at the October2011 event?
I wrote them about this issue and actually heard back from Margaret Flowers, saying that election integrity advocates are some of the organizers of the event. I know VR is listed at the site.
I think this would be a wonderful opportunity.
I have posted almost the exact same message to Brad at BradBlog.

My apology to Mark and all readers, I thought posting here was writing to Mark through the blog. I am just hoping that some individuals that care about election integrity will contact the organizers of October2011 about being able to speak at the event.
