Allison Kilkenny: Unreported

Help Georgia and Minnesota Democrats

Posted in politics by allisonkilkenny on November 17, 2008

 

georgiaIn Georgia, a run-off is scheduled for December 2nd between State Representative Jim Martin and Senator Saxby Chambliss.  We need to raise money for the run-off campaign.  Voting started today so we need to get busy.  Victory Fund limit is $12,300.  To contribute to this race, go to http://www.actblue.com/page/senatepostseason and click on Martin. 
Contributions to this race DO count against your federal limit.
 
minnesotaIn Minnesota, about 206 votes separate Norm Coleman and Al Franken out of 2.88 million cast.  We need money to pay for canvassers, lawyers and training recount volunteers.  They trained 1,000 people this weekend but still need more.  To contribute to the recount, go to http://www.actblue.com/page/senatepostseason and click on Franken.  The limit for the recount is $12,300 per person. 

Contributions to the Re-count do NOT count against your federal limit.  If you have maxed out federally you can still contribute to the recount. 
 

GOP Continues to Steal Elections

Posted in Barack Obama, politics, voter disenfranchisement by allisonkilkenny on November 5, 2008

voterfraudThis isn’t over yet.

From John Gideon:

As we suspected tabulation of ballots has revealed problems with voting systems from all of the vendors. Hillsborough Co Florida is rethinking their contract with Premier/Diebold for $6M after having big problems counting votes. Manatee Co Florida also had a problem with Premier. Palm Beach Co had bad memory cartridges from Sequoia. Counties in Pennsylvania and South Carolina had problems with their ES&S system. We also have a run-off for senator from Georgia and a recount for senator from Minnesota. This election will last for another month at least.
