Chronicle Complicit in Election Theft

RECEIVED Wed., Oct. 1, 2008

Dear Austin Chronicle,
    I agree with letter-writer Jim Simons [Postmarks, Sept. 26] who disagreed with the Chronicle’s poor review of Stealing America: Vote by Vote [Film Listings, Sept. 19]. Democrats and progressive journals such as the Chronicle are complicit in election theft when they choose to ignore the mountain of evidence clearly documented in the film Stealing America about the myriad of schemes to thwart fair elections. Secret vote-counting electronic-voting machines are the newest and simplest method of wholesale fraud. It is easier to flip thousands of votes with clever computer programs than stuff a few ballot boxes with paper. This is why VoteRescue continues to advocate for paper ballots, hand counted in public view at the precinct level.
    If the movie reviewers did not like this film, there are plenty of other films about election fraud. Chronicle readers can see Uncounted: The New Math of American Elections by director David Earnhardt that features the heroes in the election integrity movement on DVD at Readers can also see a 2007 HBO Emmy-nominated documentary for outstanding investigative journalism-long form, Hacking Democracy (
    For those who prefer books to movies, don’t miss the booksigning Friday, Oct. 3, at Brave New Books, 1904 Guadalupe, at 7pm. Richard Hayes Phillips will be in town signing and speaking about his new book, Witness to a Crime: A Citizens’ Audit of an American Election. Robert F. Kennedy’s review calls it “irrefutable proof” about how the presidential election was stolen in Ohio in 2004. Mathematicians and statisticians would especially enjoy this thorough investigation into the numbers of a stolen election. Phillips uses simple math formulas of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to analyze thousands of ballots, poll books, and voter signature logs.
    The Chronicle should take the issue seriously.
