John Conyers - Seeks FBI Inquiry Into Ohio Vote

I still bet the FBI won’t investigate. However, if they don’t, it just goes to show you
how little power we have as a nation.

John Conyers is a representative. Constituents vote him in; he represents
not only himself and his party but also real people's wishes.

So, if John Conyers is asking for an FBI investigation and he doesn’t get it, that
means REAL people who can ask for an FBI investigation won’t be able to get one.

It is extremely positive that this article made it into the nytimes. There is
also another good article chronicling the irregularities in the Washington post
today. Two much respected papers, the nytimes being the most respected (as much
as the conservatives try to dirty its rep).

Keith Olberman is the only mainstream media guy doing anything about the voter fraud story, he has made me a nightly viewer thanks to it.

It just solidifies my point, that media coverage is the only way anything gets
done. They are the most powerful of all.

Consider this, a Chattanooga free press reporter plants a question on a soldier
that makes Rumsfeld look like a turd, within 2 days you get more armor
production than ever before. You get statements from the pentagon, signing of
contracts. All for a problem that has been UNDERreported for more than a year

We shall see if that modest appearance in the NYTimes has the same effect, or
the wapo article has a similar fighting shot of being recognized.

I know Joe Scarborough already attacked it on his blog.
