Titusville, FL (PRWEB) June 7, 2006
With the November midterm elections fast approaching, and primary races already melting down in nearly every state around the country, the release of an explosive article exposing the flaws and dirty politics in the 2004 election wins high praise from election fraud whistleblower Clint Curtis, Candidate for U.S. Congress (FL-24th district).
“Rolling Stone and author Robert Kennedy, Jr., should be given medals for bringing the ’04 election manipulations to a wider audience. Americans really aren’t yet aware just how vulnerable and insecure our elections are, or how easy it is to flip the results of a national election and change the course of the country. This is a very, very serious situation, with grave consequences for our democratic process,” said Curtis.
Published in the June 15th issue of Rolling Stone, the article offers an in-depth and long over-due examination of the persistent questions surrounding the 2004 presidential election. Moreover, Curtis joins Kennedy in his sidebar article calling for a full federal investigation into electronic voting machines, the vendors who produce the hackable machines, and those congress members responsible for enabling the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) which is making all of our elections more un-secure than ever.
“It is time to insist on verifiable and properly conducted elections in America” Curtis says. “Mr. Kennedy estimates that 350,000 voters were disenfranchised in Ohio alone – and that’s only the tip of the iceberg; thousands of election 'irregularities' went uninvestigated by both congress and the media in 2004. No voter should be forced to use proven-hackable and insecure voting machines, nor wait ten hours in the rain to exercise their right to vote. Public elections should never be sold off to private corporations, run on secret software, nor overseen by wildly partisan officials." He adds, "Unfortunately, the voters in Florida know all of this as well as anyone."
Curtis, a government whistleblower and election integrity advocate, knows from personal experience, the extreme vulnerability of electronic voting machines. He has given sworn testimony to a U.S. House Judiciary Committee hearing, filed a sworn affidavit and passed a polygraph test concerning his allegations that in 2000, while working as a computer programmer, he was asked by a high-ranking Florida official to create a prototype vote-rigging computer program. That official was Tom Feeney, now a U.S. Congressman (FL-24), close ally of disgraced former legislators Tom Delay and Duke Cunningham, former running mate of Governor Jeb Bush, and a guest of Jack Abramoff on one of his infamous golf junkets to Scotland.
Curtis aims to challenge Feeney for his congressional seat this November. “It’s time to end the corruption and restore integrity and accountability to Congress. Without verifiable, transparent, auditable elections, America is facing a crisis in its electoral system. Investigative reports like Kennedy's are long overdue and I echo his call for a federal investigation into these serious matters which threaten the legitimacy of our very democracy. Mr. Kennedy's article comes not a moment too soon.”
