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. BY ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR.

Brad Blog has just posted an excerpt from the Robert Kennedy Jr. story. See more on Brad Blog.
I’m including a quote taken from BradBlog written by Kennedy to whet your appetite . I think these are charges by a reputable, respected person that can no longer be ignored.
“The reports were especially disturbing in Ohio, the critical battleground state that clinched Bush’s victory in the Electoral College. Officials there purged tens of thousands of eligible voters from the rolls, neglected to process registration cards generated by Democratic voter drives, shortchanged Democratic precincts when they allocated voting machines and illegally derailed a recount that could have given Kerry the presidency. A precinct in an evangelical church in Miami County recorded an impossibly high turnout of ninety-eight percent, while a polling place in inner-city Cleveland recorded an equally impossible turnout of only seven percent. In Warren County, GOP election officials even invented a nonexistent terrorist threat to bar the media from monitoring the official vote count. …
But what is most anomalous about the irregularities in 004 was their decidedly partisan bent: Almost without exception they hurt John Kerry and benefited George Bush. 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.

Brad Blog has posted that Robert Kennedy, Jr has written a 10 page documented feature article for Rolling Stone Magazine alleging that Ohio’s vote in the 2004 Presidential election was stolen. We’ve heard all the rumors. At some point rumors either die or they become fact. I’m looking forward to reading the actual article. I also have a personal interest – I grew up in Ohio.
Brad Blog says “Evidence shows high-level Republicans suceeded in scheme to steal election in Ohio!” The on-line version will be posted soon and the print edition of Rolling Stone will hit the newstands on Friday.
Kennedy’s article is headlined on the front page of the Rolling Stone, “Did Bush Steal the 2004 Election- How 350,000 Votes Disappeared in Ohio” Brad Blog says that in the article Kennedy asserts that a concerted effort by high level officials was made to steal the election for Bush and that they were successful. Kennedy confirms to BradBlog that the Republican Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell was “certainly in on” the scheme. Additionally Bradblog says that there are indications of links to the White House. My guess , our friend (Fiend) Karl Rove, from his past history, would be someone to check out.
