Kerry Supports Ohio Vote Investigation, Jackson says & Fair Tally Rally in Columbus
29 Nov 2004
The Smilin' Ohioan reports a Democratic candidate "farther down on the ticket" is found to have 257,000 more votes than Sen. Kerry. A developement that dwarves the preliminary gap of 136,000, which should come down when the vote is certified on monday, because the provisionals have been, either tabled or tabulated- as reported by channel 3 news in cleveland.It is not clear what is to be done with all the various precints reporting 100%+ turnouts, ie.-more votes recorded than registered voters. Steven Rosenfield reports Jackson has a sunday rally in Columbus and he is quoted here-“We want to look at the exit polls,” Jackson said, referring to at least two non-partisan Election Day polls, by Zogby and CNN, which gave Kerry 53 percent and 51 percent of the vote, respectively. “We don’t want to be presumptuous, but these numbers in the Butler, Clarmont, Warren and Hamilton counties are suspicious.” & “We need to investigate, coordinate, litigate, recount and recuse," he said, referring to the legitimacy of the Ohio vote. “Mr. Blackwell cannot be both the owner of the team and the umpire.”

Political Prisoner Jeff Free Luers Update
29 Nov 2004
Jeff.jpgJeffrey Luers aka 'Free' is an anarchist political prisoner in the state of Oregon serving an outrageous 22 ½ year sentence for the burning of 3 Sport Utility Vehicles in the summer of 2000. Jeff is widely regarded as a political prisoner and has support all over the world.

Finally, we have some news to share with you about the status of Jeff's appeal.
It's not great, but for everyone that has wondered, here it is. As you can see, this process is remarkably slow and the end is nowhere in sight.

PS-Jeff's birthday is December 5th. While Jeff has asked that people not send him cards etc, please hold him in your thoughts that day and consider doing something to help his case. The holidays are rough times for prisoners.

For background info on the case go to www.freefreenow.org, and please read below to see how you can help.
