Last week I posted a couple of pieces (here and here) about a letter John Conyers sent to the Kerry/Edwards campaign about the voter fraud lawsuits. Today, John Conyers has a post on his blog saying he is proud of Kerry/Edwards for staying involved.
A few more words about an issue that is of the utmost importance to me.
As political candidates, we spend considerable time and effort every election cycle fighting for votes. After the election, whether won or lost, many candidates leave the irregularities of the election behind. But we owe the voters more than that. When voters are disenfrachised, we owe it to them to seek justice and expose the truth. That is why I have been so proud of the Kerry-Edwards campaign’s ongoing involvement in the investigation and litigation of what went wrong in Ohio. I wrote to the candidates recently to ask that they continue to be involved in this important endeavor.
This is not about the past. It is about figuring out what went wrong and why — and then getting the next election right, not for the Democratic Party, but for all of the voters.
