9/23/05: Analysis: problems with the Carter-Baker report
|Green County OH
||Greene County 2004 Recount Irregularities Detailed Under Oath by Recount Worker
In a 4-page declaration under penalty of perjury, Ohio 2004 recount observer Evelyn Roberson -- a retired election official from California -- has detailed irregularities in the conduct of the recount in Greene County, Ohio, including
-operation of, and "clearance" of, the tabulators prior to the recount observers's arrival, by Brett Rapp, president of Triad, the manufacturer of the tabulators;
-non-random selection of the precincts to be recounted;
-leaving the balltos in stacks on a table rather than in sealed containers, as required by Ohio law;
-seating of the observers so that they could not see the ballot punches;
-the failure of the 'readers' and the 'markers' to be looking at the same ballot at the same time;
-the absence of any display of the sample ballot;
-the failure to show the observers the sheets in which entries were being made;
-the failure to place the punched cards against a colored background to enable the observers to have a clear view of the holes;
-the failure to conduct a full hand recount after a discrepancy did materialize;
-handing the ballots to Mr. Rapp for a machine count;
-the officials directing the observers to leave the building during a lunch break, and then during that 'lunch break' having started a machine recount without the observers present, when a hand recount was mandated by law in any event;
|Hocking County OH
||In this sworn affidavit, election official Sherole Eaton describes her observations of a Triad employee who came to her voting district and manipulated the equipment before the recount. The Triad employee then gave her instructions on how to cheat in the recount and ensure that the recount number matches the original count exactly.
|Monroe County OH
||Recount observers report that the hand count was not randomly selected, and that the hand counted precinct did NOT match the original count. According to law, this should have caused the entire county to be recounted by hand. However, this was never done.
|Clermont County, OH
||Sworn Affidavits: Several recount observers have signed sworn affidavits stating that they saw widespread election fraud during the recount. This includes observed white stickers on ballots. The white stickers were observed on top of the ovals where voters had marked their vote for John Kerry. The recount observers saw this at multiple locations. The sticker would cause the ballot readers to not register the vote for Kerry. Also described in these affidavits are how the hand-count portions of the recount were not chosen randomly (as required by law). And, observers report that they were not allowed to watch the recount, also required by law.
||Computer programmer Clint Curtis provides his sworn testimony that while he was working at a software company in Florida, he was instructed to write a vote-rigging program that would cause the Republican candidate to win. Curtis has testified before the House Judiciary Committee and has passed a polygraph test. More information on his story here.
