Raw Story Breaks Expose On Baker/Carter
Election Reform Commission Controversy

Reports That the Fix is in on Secretly Seated Blue-Ribbon Commission! Stacked with Partisan Operatives!

Controversy Swirls Around Baker-Carter Electoral Reform Panel, Stacked With GOP Veterans; Carter Center Denies Role; Secret Service Questions; Kerry Camp: 'Dishonest'

From RAW Reporter Larisa Alexandrovna's Exclusive:

  • Deep GOP, partisan and Voting Machine Company entanglement in formation of Commission!

  • Unauthorized use of the Carter Center name by the Commission on all of its literature though Carter Center says they will have no involvement whatsoever with Commission!

  • Commission hold hearings in separate room from audience who may only watch via closed-circuit TV!

  • Background security checks required for audience members by Commission, denied by Secret Service!

Velvet Revolution (an organization comprised of nearly 100 real Election Reform and Voting Rights groups and co-founded by BRAD BLOG author, Brad Friedman) issued a press release on March 30th, calling for Baker to immediately step down from this commission.

VR will shortly be launching an action to allow citizens to contact Carter and the rest of the Commission to let them know we've had enough boondoggling of our democracy! Stay tuned...
