TN Title VI Compliance Commission Meeting Fails

 

The Seal of the State of TennesseeThe Tennessee Title VI Compliance Commission was scheduled to meet in Nashville at the Legislative Plaza on August 7, 2006.  No official business could be conducted because the Commission did not have a quorum of members in attendance.  The Commission was scheduled to meet in Clarksville in September of 2005.  That meeting failed also due to the lack of a quorum.

There were a number of individuals from Clarksville that attended the meeting with high hopes of being able to present issues related to Title VI and hear some possible solutions.  Sadly their hopes were dashed because the official meeting had to be canceled. «Read the rest of this article»

District 5 Concession

 

Gregg Schlanger Campaign PosterDear Friends,

The votes are in… and while we held a lead after the votes had been counted on election day, (Schlanger 203 – Gibbs 194) my opponent took the lead with the count from early voting. (Early voting ran July 14 – 29, 2006, Schlanger 130 – Gibbs 298) The final tally is Schlanger 337 – Gibbs 504.

Congratulations to Robert Gibbs and congratulations to all the candidates who won.

A huge thank you to all who have contributed your valuable time and resources. I am truly grateful for all the effort and energy so many of you have given to this campaign. Thank you to all the volunteers who gave unselfishly. I have learned from all of you and your encouragement keeps me going. Thank you to all those who donated money to this campaign, your investment began and continues to fuel the need for change in our community. And especially, thank you to my family, my wife and daughters, for all the sacrifices you have made during the past three months and your unconditional love and support. It has been an honor to work with all of you. «Read the rest of this article»

The Constitution in Crisis; The Downing Street Minutes and Deception, Manipulation, Torture, Retribution, and Coverups in the Iraq War, and Illegal Domestic Surveillance

 

ConstitutionThis is what happens when one political party has too much control over our government and abrogates their responsibility to conduct oversight over the other branches of our government because they are controlled by members of their political party!

This Minority Report has been produced at the direction of Representative John Conyers, Jr., Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee.The Report is divided into two principal parts – Part I, released in draft form in December, 2005, concerns “The Downing Street Minutes and Deception Manipulation, Torture, Retribution, and Cover-ups in the Iraq War;” and Part II, released in June 2006, concerns “Unlawful Domestic Surveillance and Related Civil Liberties Abuses under the Administration of George W. Bush.” (At the conclusion, They include an Addendum including additional matters which have come to light since Part I of the Report was issued in December, 2005 and Part II was written in May, 2006). «Read the rest of this article»

Updated: August 2006 election results, and rumors of problems downloading votes from machines used in early voting!

 

A Microvote Infinity voting machinePlease see the Election 2006 page for complete election results!

I am currently investigating reports of issues retreiving the votes from the Microvote Infnity machines used for early voting, which once again raises the question: Can we trust paperless voting using electronic machines, and highlighting the need for these machines to produce a voter verified paper audit trail!

Ask yourself this. What happens at the end of the day, if they try to download votes from a heavily used voting machine, and find nothing there? While I hope this is a nightmare that we never have to face, they will not be able to say we were not warned!  Updated below: «Read the rest of this article»
