This Should Be Interesting...
US Election rules demand that the electoral college votes be counted in front of Congress. Democratic Representative John Conyers, ranking minority member of the House Judiciary Committee, plans to object to the counting of Ohio electoral votes and has sent the following to every Senator:
"As you know," writes Rep. Conyers in his letter, "on January 6, 2005, at 1:00 P.M, the electoral votes for the election of the president are to be opened and counted in a joint session of Congress. I and a number of House Members are planning to object to the counting of the Ohio votes, due to numerous unexplained irregularities in the Ohio presidential vote, many of which appear to violate both federal and state law."The letter goes on to ask the Senators who receive this letter to join Conyers in objecting to the Ohio Electors.
"I am hoping that you will consider joining us in this important effort," writes Conyers, "to debate and highlight the problems in Ohio which disenfranchised innumerable voters. I will shortly forward you a draft report itemizing and analyzing the many irregularities we have come across as part of our hearings and investigation into the Ohio presidential election."I look forward to it: if only we could get C-SPAN in NL.
