Let the Audit Begin in Ohio

Following many reports of error resulting in thousands of votes being cast in error for George W. Bush in the state of Ohio, a group led by Bev Harris of will be pursuing a public recount throughout certain counties within the state.

The new 527 group, Help America Recount, will be releasing further information at A recount within the state of Ohio is a public priority as the group believes that "accounting for provisional ballots has been murky, and anomalies have now surfaced in Cuyahoga County, Perry County, and Youngstown Ohio."

Bev Harris also recently expressed interest in using a state statute known as the Sunshine Law to pursue recounts within Florida.

With the exception of MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, the mainstream media has failed to report the vote anomalies and errors that occurred on November 2nd. Talk radio and the individuals on the Internet have aggressively followed such stories and are demanding action.

As evidence of the growing interest developing on the Internet, in the week following the election, the number one phrase used by search engine users landing on the Washington Dispatch's website has been "vote fraud" while "ohio vote fraud" takes the number two slot. Additionally, the website popularity checker, Popdex, shows that the number two linked item on the web is the article by Thom Hartmann, Evidence Mounts That The Vote May Have Been Hacked.

Bev Harris and the new group, Help America Recount, are pursuing a growing movement that is calling for an investigation and audit of the results of the November 2nd election.
