Technology Has Outrun the Law
This article is from a pamphlet issued in 1987 by the Cincinnatus Political Action Committee - Jim Condit Jr.
In fact, the implied prediction in the first paragraph below came true: Councilman Jim Cissell was leading all night to win the 9th spot (nine seats to be elected) in the 1987 City Council election --- and as in other years, a foremost tool of the establishment - and thorougly unattractive candidate - who supported every form of degeneracy -- jumped ahead of Cissell in the last few batches of votes -- just as we predicted. The prediction was made based on our observed news media manipulation of the public regarding Sterne and Cissell. A bogus "scandal" was sprung on Cissell in the last few days to make the "result" look more real.
IF YOU VOTE FOR (SAY) COUNCILMAN JIM CISSELL, MIGHT THE COMPUTER STEAL YOUR VOTE AND GIVE IT INSTEAD TO (SAY) BOBBIE STERNE?
YES, AND A JUDGE HAS RULED THE COMPUTER VOTE COUNT IN HAMILTON COUNTY IS VULNERABLE TO FRAUD.
Everyone knows that computer fraud and computer "hacking" is all too commonplace. Remember when a private citizen calling himself "Captain Midnight" broke into HBO cable network and took over programming for 5 minutes? Have you heard of clever employees stealing money from banks by computer fraud?
Then, - IS IT POSSIBLE THAT OUR COMPUTER VOTE COUNTING SYSTEM IN HAMILTON COUNTY IS OPEN TO FRAUD?
After the 4th year (1985) of a court battle (which still continues) between the Cincinnatus Party and the Hamilton County Board of Elections, Judge Richard Niehaus ruled, "There is no adequate and proper safeguard against the computers being programmed to distort the election results."
In the computer age, distorting the election results could involve not only dozens, but THOUSANDS, of votes in a given election. Channel 12, The Post, and The Enquirer carried major stories on October 19, 1987, in reference to a morning erng in the six year old Cncinnatus lawsuit. Judge Niehaus approved the taking of a deposition from Mr. Lonnie Gates, who had been an employee at Cincinnati Bell for 23 years. Gates will tell the court that he was directed by his superiors in the security department to tap into the computer on election night, 1979, so that the voting results could be potentially altered.
It was election night in 1979 when the Hamilton County computer - mysteriously and without explanation - broke down around 10 PM. And then Bobbie Sterne even more mysteriously jumped from 11th (losing) to 7th (winning) place. Mr. Gates states that bad instructions he was given caused the (until now) unexplained computer "power failure" in 1979.
After the unexplained "power failure", Cincinnatus Party investigated the vulnerability of the computer vote counting system and found it WIDE OPEN TO FRAUD here and elsewhere around the country.
Suit was filed in 1981 by their attorneys on behalf of a Cincinnatus Party candidate. This suit asks for no money damages but is purely a public service asking the court to secure the vote against computer FRAUD or error. The Board of Elections has stonewalled Cincinnatus's efforts for SIX YEARS. The Board has not produced even one expert to defend the present system! NOT ONE IN SIX YEARS! Cincinnatus has produced several experts - one of which pointed out that the system is open to fraud from MANY directions in an official report to the court.
Returning to the Gates case, it is a matter of record that Mr. Gates went to Congressman Gradison several months before he was abruptly fired by Cincinnati Bell. He had given Cong. Gradison's office information regarding electronic vote tampering and wire tapping which he had done under the direction of the security at the phone company.
In the same October 19 media reports concerning Mr. Gates, Mr. Chuck Shawver, spokesman for Cincinnati Bell said regarding Mr. Gates' statements, "These are the statements of a disgruntled employee."
In fact, in his more than 23 years at Bell, Mr. Gates had received nothing but good job performance ratings from the company. Gates was even given a $1,000.00 raise one month before he was "fired" for no apparent reason. A civil suit against Cincinnati Bell is now pending.
"I had gone to a Congressman, the FBI, and executives at the phone company, but no one helped me until I saw Jim Condit, Jr., the Director of the Cincinnatus Party in a news item on Channel 12 on election eve, 1986". Gates asserts, "Now, after one year of working closely with Condit, the Cincinnatus attorneys, and Cincinnatus supporters, it looks like the public is going to finally find out what is happening. TECHNOLOGY HAS OUTRUN THE LAW - and nobody but the Cincinnatus Party seemed to understand the grave danger to true privacy, voting rights, etc., for all Americans."
"Many citizens have found it hard to believe that the voters of Cincinnati actually elected Bobbie Sterne to City Council in 1979, 1981, and 1993. It's certainly possible, but we find it hard to swallow," comments Jean Buschle, chairman of Cincinnatus. "Oh, we know what the computer has told us, but we are stating in no uncertain terms that Judge Richard Niehaus is right - there is no guarantee that the computer count reflects what the voters actually voted."
Another Cincinnatus Board member, Barbara Desborough (who is a member of the Cincinnati Board of Health) put it this way, "We are concerned about nameless, faceless computer operators who may potentially tamper with the public's vote. The statements by Board of Elections officials that this is "impossible" is proven.
