AfD founder Ronnie Dugger and National Co-Chair Cliff Arnebeck launch the Ohio Honest Election Campaign.
America's democracy depends on honest elections, Ronnie Dugger stated.
"Every vote must be recounted in Ohio and the methods for counting and conveying precinct totals must be checked and rechecked," Cliff Arnebeck announced. "The Alliance is pleased that David Cobb, presidential candidate in Ohio for the Green Party, and Michael Badnarik, Libertarian Party presidential candidate, who have legal standing in Ohio to file for a recount, are moving forward with this filing. The Alliance congratulates them for having raised the necessary funds for the filing fee required for the statewide recount."
The Alliance can now focus its attention on keeping the recount honest, including filing litigation with Ohio voters as plaintiffs to gain full access to all aspects of the electoral count and process. "Public hearings are being held around the state in which public interest groups from all over the country are participating. These are a vital part of giving all Ohioans and all Americans a role in this badly needed audit for American democracy," said Arnebeck.
Ronnie Dugger wrote the definitive warning essay about the dangers of computerized voting-counting in The New Yorker of November 7, 1988 and again this August issued a warning cry in The Nation, How They Could Steal the Election This Time.
