    If Blackwell really did all of this, why didn't the DEMOCRATS now in charge prosecute him for it??

    •  Because the evidence was destroyed (6+ / 0-)

      In 55 of 88 counties, it was found — when Blackwell's successor Jennifer Brunner took over and ordered materials held beyond the legal time period and arranged for a warehouse in Columbus to have them shipped to — that some or all of the materials from 2004 had been lost, destroyed or misplaced — poll books, voted ballots, unused ballots. Gone in way too many places to ever mount any sort of effective investigation, let alone prosecution, Blackwell's buddies covered his tracks, especially in southwestern Ohio where some real hanky-panky may have gone on.

      Blackwell DID help steal the election. That's not a conspiracy theory. Much of it was done through machine misallocation. None of it was done through manipulating leaks in touchscreen programming because — all i have said a million times — virtually no counties in Ohio were using touchscreens in 2004. Our only touchscreen election was 2006. And Blackwell lost that one by 24 points!

      Time to garden and kick Republican ass.

      Why do you consistently come from a position that would align nicely with Michael Steele?

      Defending noted scumbag Blackwell really colors my perception of you, and helps to feed my general skepticism of anything you say.

        I'm asking WHY if these "Crimes" were committed, that they haven't been prosecuted by the DEMOCRATS in charge now.

        LOGIC isn't your thing, eh??
