Renews the warning to all future presidential candidates and the voters-- to BEWARE of election fraud. The same frauds that happened during the 1876 election are happening again in 21st Century elections.

Invitations have been extended for an October 5th preview event and the book will debut globally early October. As the saying goes, history does repeat itself, and author Nikki Oldaker, in her new book "Samuel J. Tilden – The Real 19th President," takes us back in time behind the scenes of the 1876 Tilden Hayes election, which was referenced with Gore/Bush 2000 election dispute and then again with Kerry/Bush in 2004. Her book includes Tilden’s biographer John Bigelow writings from “The Life of Samuel J. Tilden” and renews the warning to all future presidential candidates -- BEWARE! The book reveals how New York Times editor John Reid put the wheels in motion for the Republicans to steal Tilden’s Presidency.

Nikki is “a natural” who excels at whatever she undertakes. She plunged into her political breech in the 1992 Democratic Political Convention and two more successive ones managing “The VIP Backstage Room” for candidates and speakers who went before the TV cameras.

Leaving all her other careers behind, her stints with the National Political Conventions aroused her interest in the history of American Presidential elections. This interest led her to Tilden, while she was digging through old Congressional records in New Haven, CT.

Tilden was a reformer, who busted up the Tweed Ring, and after his election win had to deal with the corrupt administration of President Grant, who conspired to cheat Tilden out of the Presidency. Nikki was in awe of Tilden's political integrity and in 1997, she wrote a movie script about his conflict with Rutherford B. Hayes, titled, "Tilden." Oldaker did research for “Tilden” at the New York Public Library, and the Arts Club, which was originally his home and today a historical landmark. She read numerous books and documents as well as newspaper accounts to write a compelling screenplay about the four months of conflict and voters protest demonstrations that uncannily prefigured the Bush/Gore dispute.

Nikki Oldaker an endless traveler; was raised, educated and worked in Longboat Key and Orlando, Florida, as well as Fairfield, Branford and Milford, Connecticut. She currently resides in Clearwater with her husband, Eric.

Nikki states unequivocally, "The voters in America deserve honesty and integrity from their elected officials as well as the very best service. I hope my book about Tilden helps them to realize; honor ranks higher in the people’s eyes more so than monetary position.”
