Free Press: Help Document Ohio's Stolen Election
Help us document Ohio's stolen election: be a part of the book & movie!
by Free Press staff
December 16, 2004
Just before November 2, Dr. Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman published "12 ways the Ohio vote is being stolen" at freepress.org.
Widely circulated throughout the internet, the piece proved prophetic. But what really happened in Ohio has been "locked down" by the major media.
If another stolen presidential election slips by undocumented, we can only tremble for the future of American democracy.
Working here in Columbus, we've thoroughly documented the dark corners of this tragic election. We're now turning it all into the definitive book and documentary film.
With your help, we can have this book published in January. It will be the document of record of the wholesale disenfranchisement, manipulation and fraud that define this election.
By December 2005, we expect our documentary film to show the world how it all happened.
Our deep roots in the central Ohio journalist and activist communities give us unique access to all aspects of this story. Prize-winning writer and Air America producer Steve Rosenfeld has joined our team. Free Press videographer Suzanne Patzer is already coordinating the unique, powerful footage we've shot from election day on.
Our non-stop coverage continues to unfold at freepress.org. We need your help to keep it up.
And we invite you to be a part of this essential book and movie project with a tax deductible donation to freepress.org. A donation of $50 or more gets you a free, signed first edition of the book upon publication. A donation of $100 or more gets you the signed first editions of both the book and the dvd.
American democracy is hanging by a thin thread in Ohio. Please help us make sure it doesn't snap. Every cent you contribute will make a difference.
