August 3, 2007 - A letter has been issued by Citizens for a Fair Vote Count, National Ron Paul Supporters Meetup, Restore the Republic, and We the People Congress regarding the use of Diebold voting machines in the Iowa primaries.
The letter reads as follows:
Everything we are all doing is going to be brought to NAUGHT if the Diebold computers - being used to 'count' the votes at the Iowa Straw Poll - are used to STEAL the Straw Poll Election.
YES - despite a study from computer scientists at the University of California paid for by the Secretary of State of California - publicized in the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times LAST SATURDAY (July 28, 2007) - the Iowa GOP is STILL planning to use the easily rigged Diebold computers to "count" the vote at the Straw poll!
You see, the study showed that the Diebold computers were easily hacked, easily rigged, - and totally unreliable for conducting elections. And this is old news, several authoritative studies have already shown this from MIT, Cal Tech, Princeton University, and numerous other sources.
Search "Diebold Princeton University" on YOUTUBE - and you can see a 9 minute demonstration. Add "FOX News" to the search - and there is another 3 minute demonstration by these scientists on FOX News.
Citizens for a Fair Vote Count and allies are conducting a verification EXIT POLL at the Ames Straw Poll. We're asking all Ron Paul people who vote in the Ames Straw Poll in the official election on the easily rigged Diebold Machines - to cast a second "ballot" in our exit poll. IF WE COME UP with 5000 Ron Paul exit poll ballots - the Iowa GOP better not say he only got 2000 votes! Get the point?
Millions of our fellow Americans have fought and bled and died over the past 200 years for our freedoms - let's not let Diebold and the Iowa GOP spit on their sacrifice in Ames by conducting yet another SECRET VOTE "COUNT." Let all of us HONOR the sacrifice of all our fallen soldiers over 200 years by ENSURING AN OPEN AND HONEST VOTE COUNT.
