Open Letter to John Kerry

This from my friend John Lawler (of Bushocchio fame) to the Kerry folks:

Kerry-Edwards 2004, Inc.
P.O. Box 34640
Washington, DC 20043
202-712-3001 (fax)

Dear John Kerry,

I realize you have important reasons to stay at arm’s length from all of the “conspiracy theories” about the election being stolen. But you and I both know something smells mighty foul out there…

As Greg Palast has clearly explained*, an entire class of people have been disenfranchised and sent to the back of Ohio’s voting bus. This is a provable systematic violation of the Voting Rights Act. If you want to win in 2004 or win in 2008 you could do far worse than fighting against massive racial discrimination.

In the process you could open Pandora’s electronic voting box. Go ahead, let those demons out. If America really knew how corrupt and inaccurate the current system is they’d be outraged. Heaven knows the news media won’t fully expose this disaster on it’s own.

You once said about the Bush-Cheney machine, “these guys are the most crooked, lying group I've ever seen." You were right. And you must be the one to expose this truth and more. Do the right thing and you will see reward. America has so much to gain, and frankly you don’t have that much to lose... The millions of hard working lefties that toiled for you this year will not be there in 2008 unless you are here for democracy NOW.

You told us you operate from your mother’s dying advice “integrity, integrity, integrity.” America asks you now to please act from the highest rectitude. You know this is injustice. Integrity demands that you do not let this stand.

Sincerely,

John Lawler
