More On Thor
Mark F. (Thor) Hearne, II who toils for the "non-partisan" American Center for Voting Rights was not only the National Election Counsel to Bush-Cheney ’04 Inc. and the Missouri counsel to Bush-Cheney ‘00 Inc. He was also one of 57 Missouri delegates at the 2004 RNC in NYC: link. The Republican National Committee also paid 253 dollars to give Thor "lodging" on December 22, 2003: open secrets.
The fix was in last November. And the Bushies knew that they couldn't just eke out another win in electoral votes and lose the popular vote like they did in 2000. " "It's not good enough for us just to win this election," says Thor Hearne, national counsel for the Bush-Cheney campaign. "We have to overperform. We have to win the election by 2 to 3 percentage points to get a fraud-proof margin of victory." (cache link).
Thor ran for the House of Representatives 3rd Congressional District of Missouri in 1988, but was soundly defeated by Richard Gephardt: link. Thor, of course, ran as the Republican candidate.
Non-partisan Thor will be attending the Florida Republican National Lawyer Association Chapter’s 2005 Kickoff Reception as the featured guest speaker on April 14th, 2005: link. According to the RNL Website, "this Reception will honor the lawyer volunteers who worked diligently in the 2004 elections to ensure that the voters, not the courts decided the election." But that's a fucking lie since Thor uses the courts to stop voters from voting and little else. The Florida Republican National Lawyers Association should be disbarred, every single one of them, for posting such a blatant lie on their Website.
