Another Pre-Defense Attack

In an article entitled, “Ohio Attorneys to Assert RICO Claim Against Karl Rove for Orchestrating Theft of 2004 Election” another pre-defense attack is underway.If you know you are going to be in trouble for something, it just makes perfect sense to attack your accuser before you are attacked. It makes for a nice defense tactic. After all, if you have already demonized the people who will file charges against you (DOJ Attorney Firings and the corrupt Don Siegelman case), the next step is to accuse your adversary of doing what you will be accused to doing, or at least something that will divert attention from evidence.

“Plaintiff attorneys for a lawsuit filed in 2006 that sought voting records to prove whether their suspicion that Republicans conspired to suppress the votes of two active Democratic demographics that helped President Bush win the state and a second term in the White House, changed the focus of their lawsuit Thursday, saying they will now focus on learning more about the roles played by Karl Rove, Bush’s political architect and Mike Connell, a long-time Bush family confidant and Information technology guru – now working for Sen. John McCain – who as an information technology tradesman, built various computer systems that produced election irregularities that favored Republicans and whose work, if not ferreted out and stopped now, may do the same this year for McCain as it did for Bush against Kerry four years ago.”

The case is about; “Whether the rights, privileges, and immunities guaranteed to Plaintiffs by the Civil Rights Act, and the First, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution have been violated by the past and ongoing conduct of Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell in connection with past elections in Ohio.”

Other cases are attempting to maintain an atmosphere of corruption in voting processes.

In a letter written to Attorney General Michael Mukasey, lawyer Cliff Arnebeck said he intends to; “assert an Ohio Corrupt Practices Act/RICO claim against Mr. Karl Rove and others based upon their activities in 2000 to illegally use corporate treasury money and government power to establish single faction dominance in the United States, military dominance in the world and generally undermine the rule of law as it had developed over the course of the past century”

To wit, “We are concerned about reports that Mr. Rove not only destroyed e-mails, but also took steps to destroy the hard drives from which they had been sent.”

The point of the change in the King Lincoln Bronzeville lawsuit: the “bad guys are still the same bad guys but working a different way.”

It is that ‘different way’ that is being defended, before it is even known. And this is just one of many actions to join the demonization of the Justice Department, the refusal to admit defeat in 2000 and now 2004 and the congressional hearings into anything Democrats can find to place focus on allegations of corruption of this administration.

And the line just gets redder with each passing day.
