from Deborah Grabien over at PeoplesForum, a very important message (and bit of activism on your part, if you accept the challenge):

"Last night, Keith Olbermann on MSNBC's 'Countdown' did a 15-minute piece on the increasingly obvious and massive election fraud of last Tuesday. If you didn't see it last night, here's a link to the show. It runs about 15 minutes.

This is the first major story on the theft of the election to hit the 'mainstream media' - there will be more.

Speaking for myself, I find that I am unwilling to sit back and assume the part of the citizens of Germany in the late 1930's. If 97,000 people who either don't live in Cuyahoga County, Ohio or who flat-out don't exist cast votes there last Tuesday, I want it investigated. I will not play the part of appeasement.

People are very fond of saying that, if you don't vote, you should shut up. I agree. But I feel, very strongly, that shutting up and doing nothing when you've watched a blatant hijacking of your right to have that vote counted is even worse. It translates to appeasement.

So here's what I'm doing, and what I'm asking.

I'm asking everyone to write to David Walker. He's already been officially requested by Representative Conyers (D-MI) to investigate this fraud. Don't write an e-mail. Yes, they're easy to do and require no work, but they're also easy to ignore and to lose. Write a letter, a real live letter. Stamp it. Send it. Make the USPS have to hire extra trucks to deliver millions of letters to Walker's office. Make this impossible to brush off or 'lose'. Have it be an image on the local nightly news: vox populi.

Then post the letter you write in email, to your entire address list. Ask them to do the same.

Make this a movement. We have until January 6. This is our best shot.

This is the letter I'm sending out today:

'The Honorable David M. Walker Comptroller General of the United States
U.S. General Accountability Office
441 G Street, NW
Washington, DC 20548

Dear Mr. Walker:

I am writing as a registered voter and a taxpaying citizen of the United States, to request that you launch a fully public and visible investigation into the fast-growing allegations of massive and wide-spread election fraud perpetrated against the American voting public on Tuesday, November 2nd.

The freedom to vote, and the right to have your vote properly counted, is perhaps the single most basic and hard-fought right we have. The citizens of our country, Democrat and Republican alike, watched in horror as the shenanigans of Kathleen Harris in Florida during the 2000 election came to light. We now learn of severe discrepancies all across the country on November 2nd, but most startlingly in Ohio and Florida, the two states that both sides considered to be pivotal before the election.

We are at present trying to convince Iraq that democracy is better than the system they had. If we can offer no credibility for our own democratic process, how can we expect peace there, or anywhere else?

Please fulfill your duties and begin this investigation. Don't hide it from America, Mr. Walker. It's time the fraud and chicanery were brought to light, the perpetrators held accountable, and our democracy restored.

Sincerely, Deborah Grabien' "
