Leading Democrats Take Up Vote-Suppression Fight, by Edward Spannaus

"What happened on Nov. 2 was not an election, but a not-so-cold coup d'état against the United States Constitution … And those in the … Republican Party who engaged in a widespread campaign of vote-suppression are guilty of violating the 1965 Voting Rights Act and the Constitution ... sufficient to send these guys to jail, if not to un-elect them …"

The theft of the election through the massive suppression of the votes of minority voters, most flagrant in Ohio and Florida, but also prevalent in many other states, is a far bigger question than mere vote fraud. By targetting the lower 80% of the population which the LaRouche movement and … the Democratic Party were mobilizing, [the Neo-cons] were attempting to consolidate their grip on the U.S. government for their policy of perpetual war and brutal economic austerity.

This is critical inside the Democratic Party, where many activists are being drawn into futile legal actions on the state level, seeking recounts, or redress for vote fraud and irregularities, which do not get at the fundamental Constitutional implications of the Nov. 2 coup. On the other hand, there is fortunately an effort now under way among key Democrats, in the House and elsewhere, to compile the evidence of how high-level operatives in the Bush-Cheney apparatus … acted in explicit violation of the Voting Rights Act to suppress the vote on Nov. 2.

… Prior to the election, a report called "The Long Shadow of Jim Crow: Voter Intimidation and Suppression in America Today" was published by the NAACP and People for the American Way. … The … report … chronicled the myriad methods of vote-suppression used, over the past couple of decades, which have intensified during the 2000 election and subsequently. … In recent issues of EIR (see Nov. 19 and Nov. 26), we have presented documentation of the many methods of voter-suppression used, particularly in Ohio. This included dirty tricks and disinformation circulated to voters before the election (such as directing voters to the wrong polling place), and during the election; mobilizing challengers to intimidate voters at the polling places; unlawful purging of voter rolls; and the failure to process new voter registrations in a timely manner. And, perhaps the most important method in Ohio, deliberately shorting the number of voting machines in urban minority precincts, so that would-be voters had to stand in line for 3-4 hours, and sometimes 8-10 hours, causing many to leave in frustration or out of necessity, thus preventing them from voting.

… 12 Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, … [are taking action]. … The pattern of vote suppression being compiled by the House Judiciary Committee minority members … should be presented to the full House and Senate on or before Jan. 6—which is when Congress meets in Joint Session to certify the Electoral College votes. To understand the type of mobilization which is needed, it is worth recalling what happened four years ago.

… The CBC [Congressional Black Caucus] staged a dramatic action on the floor of the Joint Session, rising one after another to object to the Florida electoral vote [mainly to prevent Ashcroft's appointment.

… Following Bush's certification, the drive to stop Ashcroft grew. By the time his nomination came to the Senate floor, there were a sufficient number of U.S. Senators organized and ready to block Ashcroft's confirmation. At the very last moment, Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle, in an act of betrayal that probably cost him his Senate seat in 2004, ordered Democratic Senators to halt their resistance, and confirm Ashcroft.
