Keep Ohio Recount Non-Partisan:
Ask Secretary Blackwell to Step Aside
www.commoncause.org > Take Action > Keep Ohio Recount Non-Partisan
We need to make sure that any recount process in Ohio is totally free of the taint of partisanship. For an Ohio recount to be purely non-partisan, a state official such as Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, whose partisan decision in this election drew comparisons to Katherine Harris, and who led President Bush's re-election efforts in Ohio, must excuse himself from the recount process.
This is why we are asking you to join us in signing our nationwide petition requesting that Mr. Blackwell remove himself from any and all recount- related procedures. We must ensure any recount is pure and not left open to accusations of partisanship, which tainted the process in Florida in 2000.
Please sign and forward to friends who are interested in having an honest recount.
