Format: Paperback
The team of Robert J. Fitrakis, Steven Rosenfeld, and Harvey Wasserman also wrote the earlier books, Did George W. Bush Steal America's 2004 Election? and How the GOP Stole America's 2004 Election & Is Rigging 2008. (Many of the documents and conclusions of these earlier books are included in this later one, by the way.)

They wrote in the Introduction to this 2006 book, "This book tells the story of what happened in Ohio, where perhaps the nation's most partisan secretary of state, Republican J. Kenneth Blackwell, systematically steered his state's election laws and voting machinery to benefit Republicans and to reelect President George W. Bush. These efforts harmed not just the Democratic Party, its voters, and nominee John Kerry, but the democratic process itself." (Pg. 3)

In Ohio, of course, exit polls predicted a Kerry victory; but for those who argue that "the exit polls were simply WRONG," the authors assert that "the greatest discrepancy between how people said they voted, and the subsequent official results, were not in Democratic strongholds: they were in Republican districts, where few Democrats or political independents were present to verify the vote." (Pg. 154)

They observe, "the most striking vote-counting anomaly occurred in ... the part of the state where White House political Guru Karl rove claimed that evangelical Christians had rallied behind the president and voted in droves...

This book zeros in on a single example of vote rigging that laid the groundwork for many others in later elections. I question why we didn't figure it out in 2004. By 2012, voter suppression was commonplace, and it need not have been. We could have nipped this weed in the bud but we didn't. I know from direct experience that the illegal practices actually happened. If our government should be doing anything, it should be stopping rigged elections like Ohio in 2004.

This is a review by Carol Staley, who has a 40-year career working as an election officer in California:

I just completed "What Happened in Ohio: A Documentary Record of Theft and Fraud in the 2004 Election" and found it most enlightening.

As a former election administrator, I have been quite skeptical of all the accusations flying around, many of which are totally unfounded.

This book is extremely well researched and documented. It totally changed my opinion of how the Ohio election was conducted.

Steven Rosenfeld, who did the writing, presented a readable, factual account. I especially appreciated the way he laid out the material; it was very easy to refer to the documents as I was reading the text.

I felt after Florida, in 2000, that Secretaries of State should NEVER be allowed to participate in partisan politics while presiding as the chief election officer of the state. Ohio clearly presents the best reasons why this job should be classified as a non-partisan position, barring all engagements in politics of any kind until out of office.

It should be required reading for all civics classes and a reference book for election officials.

Format: Paperback
Now that Hillary Clinton's improbable and stunning win in the first-in-the-Nation New Hampshire primary has entered the history books, it is time to pick this book up again and read it to truly understand how Democracy in America has been stolen.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Republicans would rather run against Hillary than any other Democrat contender. It is she out of the three top runners the Republican National Committee believe they can defeat. Diebold machines were used throughout NH, the same Deibold machines which are easily hackable and which do not allow for after-the-fact examination.

Exit polls in NH did not support in any way, shape or form the results between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and the fact that the final results and the exit polls conformed so precisely with all other contenders, Republican AND Democrat, makes the Obama/Clinton results even more alarming and sinister.

Thousands of very wealthy, avaricious people around the world thrive in Banana Republics, using their wealth and influence to achieve a pampered and privileged existence while the rest of their society has to deal with lawlessness, lack of education, lack of health care, lack of decent infrastructure, lack of security and lack of freedom and opportunity to gain true prosperity. Americans are now facing the same kind of future and paradigm. The question is, are they going to allow themselves to be stupified by a compliant and equally avaricious Media or are they going to educate themselves and rise up to prevent it?
