Remember in “Fahrenheit 911” when members of the Congressional Black Caucus tried to challenge the 2000 election, but couldn’t get a single Senator to join them? Well, we can’t allow this to happen again!
On January 6, Congress will convene to ratify the Electoral College votes in the 2004 Presidential Election. Congressman John Conyers (D-Michigan) and other Representatives plan to challenge the electoral vote count due to election irregularities and the appearance of illegality in the vote and recount. See http://www.truthout.org/docs_04/123104W.shtml
Please call your Senators and Representatives and encourage them to join Congressman Conyers in challenging the validity of the election. We must restore confidence in our democracy! You can call toll-free at 1-800-839-5276.
