Kerry's Team America Still Active
Kerry Investigates Voter Fraud
Letter from Cam Kerry:
I am grateful to the many people who have contacted me to express their deep concern about questions of miscounting, fraud, vote suppression, and other problems on election day, especially in Florida and Ohio. Their concern reflects how much people care about the outcome of this election. I want to you to know we are not ignoring it. Election protection lawyers are still on the job in Ohio and Florida and in DC making sure all the votes are counted accurately. I have been conferring with lawyers involved and have made them aware of the information and concerns people have given me. Even if the facts don't provide a basis to change the outcome, the information will inform the continuing effort to protect the integrity of our elections.
If you have specific factual information about voting problems that could be helpful to the lawyers doing their job, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than to me.
The election protection effort has been important to me personally, and I am proud of the 17,000 lawyers around the country who helped. It's obvious that we have a way to go still, but their efforts helped make a difference. Their work goes on.
Thank you, Cam Kerry
Okay Everyone....ENOUGH WITH THE ATTACKS ON SENATOR KERRY FOR CONCEDING SO SOON(I was guilty of this myself the day after)! The facts that were available at the time showed that he didn't have enough votes. But those votes are still being counted. I doubt that the coup can be overturned. But an investigation of Election 2004 (with help from us) will ensure that future elections will run smoother.
After posting a diary on Daily Kos, The Pontificator directed me to this message at Democratic Underground (The Kerry People Are On The Case): "I have verified with PeteNYC over at the Kerry Campaign that this email message from Cameron Kerry is real. Anyway, Pete tells me that the Kerry Campaign is well aware of the alleged voting irregularities, and they've got a bunch of lawyers looking into it. At this point, there simply are not enough votes for us to win this thing, so please don't expect JK to un-concede. But the Kerry People are well aware of the whole situation, and they have not abandoned us. I told Pete that I didn't think anyone really expected Kerry to un-concede, particularly if there aren't enough votes. But win or lose, many people are alarmed by the reports of voting irregularities, and it's important that these these allegations are not being ignored."
