  •  I was manning phones (4.00)
    at one of the Cleveland EP offices regarding complaints from our volunteers.  One involved attempts by a Democratic election official to have us thrown off the premises even though we were non-partisan group.

    Others involved Dem officials who were challenging voters, or requiring photo id of only minority voters (which was not required except in certain highly circumscribed instances).  And of course the complete and utter failure of the Cleveland Board of Elections to get enough machines to the many precincts even though we had reports that they had machines on hand but weren't distributing them.

    •  Umm...this might sound weird... (none)
      but do folks here think the same people were behind the assassinations of MLK and JFK...possibly RFK?

      MLK was fine when he was talking about desegregation, but then he really shocked folks by talking about the Vietnam war and the Poor People's Campaign. There's been a huge, gaping hole in the American media to cover King v. Jowers, the civil trial that found there was a conspiracy to assassinate MLK that involved local, state and federal government agencies.

      Just wonderin'...

      •  There's a long answer to that question... (none)
        ...and it's in the book The Assassinations (www.theassassinations.com).

        Funny - I was just posting about Smedley Butler a week ago myself - check out http://realhistoryarchives.blogspot.com.

        Granny - I'd say easily we could say it was the same forces. In some cases, there's certainly a familiar set of names. But the exact same people - no - too far apart in age. But the reasons are the same - keeping the people down while bolstering the elite. That's much too simplistic, but I pointed you to a 600+ page answer...! ;-)

        •  the truth is never quick n easy, no? (none)
          the King v Jowers trial transcripts are somewhere over 1,000 pages, so I'm used to sorting thru reams of info :-)

          thanks for the link!
