SPARKY: Quickly now - Bobbie Jr. did your homework!

Inquiry finds problems in 2004 election

Many of the voting and counting mishaps of the bizarre 2000 general election were not fixed four years later and brand new problems arose, including a rash of fraudulent voter registrations in some areas, congressional investigators say.

A study of the 2004 election by the Government Accountability Office concludes that paper ballots continued to be used extensively by small jurisdictions, many polling places struggled to manage heavy early voting and new federal requirements for voter identification were applied unevenly by local officials across the country. The GAO released the study Thursday.
Altogether, 41 states were granted extra time to meet federal requirements to build statewide voter registration lists, meaning most such lists were not in place for the 2004 vote.

New problems cropped up in 2004. Ambitious get-out-the-vote drives swamped officials with the task of checking applications with their backs against registration deadlines. Incomplete addresses, fictional names and questionable signatures showed up.

The report estimates 5 percent of local jurisdictions handled voter registration applications with fraudulent names.

Places that adopted newer voting technology since 2000 were not necessarily making the best use of it. Investigators said performance measures "have not been systematically embraced" and they found shortcomings in security and testing procedures.

It came as little surprise that problems plaguing the nation's patchwork elections system remained in the first general election since a 2002 federal law placed new requirements on state and local officials and gave them more money to help with costs.

The changes got off to a slow start in part because members of the Election Assistance Commission, a new body set up to help state and local officials, were appointed by President Bush eight months behind schedule and not at work until January 2004.

Widespread voting problems were exposed in 2000, the closest presidential election in history. The outcome was in limbo for weeks until the Supreme Court stopped a Florida recount, handing Bush victory based on a mere 537-vote margin in that state.

Funny how it comes forward after Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s Rolling Stone article -
  1. “Was the 2004 Election Stolen?”: “Republicans prevented more than 350,000 voters in Ohio from casting ballots or having their votes counted -- enough to have put John Kerry in the White House.”
  2. Robert F. Kennedy Jr Responds to Farhad Manjoo : “…Ohio stands as a case study in how officials, acting under color of law, can deprive citizens of their constitutional rights" …”
  3. The RFK conspiracy theory
  4. RFK Jr: Taking the Stolen Election Seriously

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Robert Francis Kennedy Jr., often referred to as RFK Jr. or Bobby Jr., (born January 17, 1954) is the third of eleven children born to Ethel Skakel Kennedy and the late Robert F. Kennedy. He is a noted environmental lawyer and co-host of Ring of Fire on the Air America Radio network.

Personal life

An animal collector during his youth, Kennedy attended Georgetown Preparatory School, the elite Jesuit boys school in Bethesda, Maryland, where he was pulled from classes on June 5th, 1968 by the rector to learn that his father had been shot following the California Democratic Primary. Kennedy graduated from Harvard College with a major in political science (interrupting his stay at Harvard to for a year of study at the London School of Economics) and obtained a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Virginia Law School, following a tradition started by his father and uncle Edward M. Kennedy. He also obtained an LL.M. from the Pace University School of Law.

Kennedy divorced Emily Black and later married Mary Richardson. In 1983, he was arrested in South Dakota for heroin possession and went into drug treatment for his addiction; he has been clean for over twenty years. His younger brother, David Kennedy, died of a drug overdose of Demerol and cocaine one year later. Kennedy has six children: Robert F. III (born 1984) and Kathleen Alexandra (1988) with Emily and Conor Richardson (1994), Kyra LeMoyne (1995), William Finbar (1997) and Aidan Caohman Vieques (2001) with Mary.

Legal career

In 1984, Kennedy joined the Riverkeeper organization as an attorney and worked with the group to prosecute polluters on the Hudson River. With fellow environmental attorney John Cronin, Kennedy has created a partnership between the Hudson Riverkeepers and Pace University School of Law. Kennedy serves as Professor of Environmental Law at Pace University School of Law and co-director of Pace's Environmental Litigation Clinic which, under a special court order, allows second and third year law students to try cases against Hudson River polluters. He credits the energy and intelligence of the students, as well as access to the Pace law faculty and library, for several legal victories over clients represented by New York's richest and most prestigious law firms. Kennedy also serves as a senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council, a prominent lobbyist and legal firm that works to strengthen and enforce environmental laws.

The Hudson Riverkeepers, now part of the international group, The Waterkeeper Alliance, was founded in 1966 by a group of fishermen and residents from New York who were outraged by pollution in the Hudson. Since the formation of the group, the Hudson River has undergone a rebirth and today there are over 100 "Keepers" in the US, Canada and Costa Rica. In 1998, Kennedy, Chris Bartle and John Hoving created a bottled water company that donates all of its profits to clean water organizations. They decided to call the company "Keeper Springs" in support of the Waterkeeper Alliance.

In 1998, Kennedy was named the inaugural director of the Watershed Institute at Boston College, an urban ecology research center. He was considered to be a possible candidate for attorney general of New York in 2006, but on January 25, 2005, Kennedy announced that he had ruled out a candidacy for the office. Had Kennedy decided to run, he would have likely faced off against his former brother-in-law, Andrew Cuomo, in the Democratic primary.

Media work and public activism

Hurricane Katrina, August 28 2005. Kennedy believes that
hurricanes may be worsening due to global warming.

Kennedy currently co-hosts Ring of Fire on Air America Radio with Mike Papantonio, despite suffering from spasmodic dysphonia, a disorder that makes speech difficult and causes the voice to sound quavery and strangled. He has written various books and articles on environmental issues, including The Riverkeepers and Crimes Against Nature. He contributes to Sierra Club publications, such as Sierra Magazine, as well as to reports authored by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Since May 2005 he's been a contributing blogger at The Huffington Post, a blog run by progressive commentator Arianna Huffington. In September 2005, he wrote a piece on the blog entitled “For Those That Sow the Wind Shall Reap the Whirlwind,” in which he tied the increasing strength of hurricanes such as Katrina to global warming and cited President Bush’s refusal to limit CO2 output as contributing to higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. He has notably opposed the construction of the Cape Wind wind power project, which would be visible from the Kennedy Compound on Cape Cod, due to claims that it would destroy the region's scenic view and damage the sea ecosystem. Kennedy has also become a recent advocate for the scientific theory that there are connections between unneeded substances (most notably mercury and specifically, thiomersal) in innoculations and childhood autism.

In an article in the June 01 2006 Rolling Stone[1], he stated his categorical belief that the Republican party stole the 2004 American presidential election:

After carefully examining the evidence, I've become convinced that the president's party mounted a massive, coordinated campaign to subvert the will of the people in 2004. Across the country, Republican election officials and party stalwarts employed a wide range of illegal and unethical tactics to fix the election. A review of the available data reveals that in Ohio alone, at least 357,000 voters, the overwhelming majority of them Democratic, were prevented from casting ballots or did not have their votes counted in 2004 -- more than enough to shift the results of an election decided by 118,601 votes.

However, liberal online magazine challenged this belief, which had been previously criticized by progressive magazine Mother Jones, among others. [2] [3] [4]

Sparky: Again we see the face of evil due to the crap spewing out of it's vapid blonde puppet's mouth.

sick neo nazi puppet coulter
She is a bit uglier than above, and that's just the outside view ... inside she's an endless sucking void.

9/11 Widows, New York Papers, Respond to Coulter's 'Slander'

“ ... Why do people keep giving Ann Coulter air time? She is a horrible, putrid human being. Anyone who provides her with an outlet to spew her hate is just as guilty as her, as well just a whore for TV ratings. ...”
Brief transcript follows, and then a response from 9/11 widows.

LAUER: Do you believe everything in the book or do you put some things in there just to cater to your base?

ANN: No, of course I believe everything.

LAUER: On the 9-11 widows, an in particular a group that had been critical of the administration: “These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9-11 was an attack on our nation and acted like as if the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently, denouncing Bush was part of the closure process.”

And this part is the part I really need to talk to you about: “These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much.” Because they dare to speak out?

COULTER: To speak out using the fact they are widows. This is the left’s doctrine of infallibility. If they have a point to make about the 9-11 commission, about how to fight the war on terrorism, how about sending in somebody we are allowed to respond to. No. No. No. We have to respond to someone who had a family member die. Because then if we respond, oh you are questioning their authenticity.

LAUER: So grieve but grieve quietly?

COULTER: No, the story is an attack on the nation. That requires a foreign policy response.

LAUER: By the way, they also criticized the Clinton administration.

COULTER: Not the ones I am talking about. No, no, no.

LAUER: Yeah they have.

COULTER: Oh no, no, no, no, no. They were cutting commercials for Kerry. They were using their grief to make a political point while preventing anyone from responding.

LAUER: So if you lose a husband, you no longer have the right to have a political point of view?

COULTER: No, but don’t use the fact that you lost a husband as the basis for being able to talk about, while preventing people from responding. Let Matt Lauer make the point. Let Bill Clinton make the point. Don’t put up someone I am not allowed to respond to without questioning the authenticity of their grief.

LAUER: Well apparently you are allowed to respond to them.

COULTER: Yeah, I did....That is the point of liberal infallibility. Of putting up Cindy Sheehan, of putting out these widows, of putting out Joe Wilson. No, no, no. You can’t respond. It’s their doctrine of infallibility. Have someone else make the argument then.

LAUER: What I’m saying is I don’t think they have ever told you, you can’t respond.

COULTER: Look, you are getting testy with me.

LAUER: No. I think it’s a dramatic statement. “These broads are millionaires stalked by stalked by grief-parazzies”? “I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s deaths so much”?

COULTER: Yes, they are all over the news.

LAUER: The book is called “Godless: The Church of Liberalism.” Ann Coulter, always fun to have you here.

The five widows' statement is reprinted below (first appeared at -
9/11 Widows respond to Coulter).


We did not choose to become widowed on September 11, 2001. The attack, which tore our families apart and destroyed our former lives, caused us to ask some serious questions regarding the systems that our country has in place to protect its citizens.

Through our constant research, we came to learn how the protocols were supposed to have worked. Thus, we asked for an independent commission to investigate the loopholes which obviously existed and allowed us to be so utterly vulnerable to terrorists. Our only motivation ever was to make our Nation safer. Could we learn from this tragedy so that it would not be repeated?

We are forced to respond to Ms. Coulter’s accusations to set the record straight because we have been slandered.

Contrary to Ms. Coulter’s statements, there was no joy in watching men that we loved burn alive. There was no happiness in telling our children that their fathers were never coming home again. We adored these men and miss them every day.

It is in their honor and memory, that we will once again refocus the Nation’s attention to the real issues at hand: our lack of security, leadership and progress in the five years since 9/11.

We are continuously reminded that we are still a nation at risk. Therefore, the following is a partial list of areas still desperately in need of attention and public outcry. We should continuously be holding the feet of our elected officials to the fire to fix these shortcomings:

  1. Homeland Security Funding based on risk. Inattention to this area causes police officers, firefighters and other emergency/first responder personnel to be ill equipped in emergencies. Fixing this will save lives on the day of the next attack.
  2. Intelligence Community Oversight. Without proper oversight, there exists no one joint, bicameral intelligence panel with power to both authorize and appropriate funding for intelligence activities. Without such funding we are unable to capitalize on all intelligence community resources and abilities to thwart potential terrorist attacks. Fixing this will save lives on the day of the next attack.
  3. Transportation Security. There has been no concerted effort to harden mass transportation security. Our planes, buses, subways, and railways remain under-protected and highly vulnerable. These are all identifiable soft targets of potential terrorist attack. The terror attacks in Spain and London attest to this fact. Fixing our transportation systems may save lives on the day of the next attack.
  4. Information Sharing among Intelligence Agencies. Information sharing among intelligence agencies has not improved since 9/11. The attacks on 9/11 could have been prevented had information been shared among intelligence agencies. On the day of the next attack, more lives may be saved if our intelligence agencies work together.
  5. Loose Nukes. A concerted effort has not been made to secure the thousands of loose nukes scattered around the world – particularly in the former Soviet Union. Securing these loose nukes could make it less likely for a terrorist group to use this method in an attack, thereby saving lives.
  6. Security at Chemical Plants, Nuclear Plants, Ports. We must, as a nation, secure these known and identifiable soft targets of Terrorism. Doing so will save many lives.
  7. Border Security. We continue to have porous borders and INS and Customs systems in shambles. We need a concerted effort to integrate our border security into the larger national security apparatus.
  8. Civil Liberties Oversight Board. Given the President’s NSA Surveillance Program and the re-instatement of the Patriot Act, this Nation is in dire need of a Civil Liberties Oversight Board to insure that a proper balance is found between national security versus the protection of our constitutional rights.
