Who will stand for democracy? Kerry? No way! Robert Byrd? Hmmm...
03 Jan 2005
Urge the senior senator to stand in defense of democracy once again and refuse to certify the recent "election"

Oddly enough, it just might be that old war horse Sen Robert Byrd (D- WV) who might "get it" with regard to the present electoral crisis. I doubt that either Senator Boxer or Senator Kennedy (mush less Kerry himself) would stick their necks out in defense of democracy here in the "Land of the Free and Home of the Brave".
Byrd has little to lose this late in the game and has lately proven to be a man of some integrity. Why not give him a holler at:

202-224-3954 or 304-342-5855
or go to:
http://byrd.senate.gov/byrd_email.html

and urge the senator to stand in defense of democracy once again and refuse to certify the recent "election".

Re: Who will stand for democracy? Kerry? No way! Robert Byrd? Hmmm...

here is an example of what you can write (it's what I wrote):
Please refuse to certify the election on January 6th.
There were thousands of incidents of voter fraud, from voting machines that didn't work, to absentee voters never receiving their ballot, people in Florida voting over the phone, and much more. Two of my close friends in swing states couldn't vote because their absentee ballots never came.
This was not a democratic election, and we need at least one senator who is willing to stand up and say so. I am writing you because I don't think either of my senators would be willing to do this, but you seem to be a man of integrity. This isn't a plea to get Kerry into office: I spent a good deal of last year planning for and then protesting the DNC. This is a plea for democracy. People don't vote because they don't think they can make a difference in such a corrupt system. Again, please refuse to certify the election results.

Will Byrd enlist the KKK, of which he was a member before he joined Congress, to help?
