Liberal Geek turns us on to some news. This news has gotchu written all over it. Perhaps too much so……

Could it be a hoax? One should certainly hope so, for if not, then the implications are severe enough to warrant the beginning of the impeachment process that conservatives are at least privately acknowledging may be necessary to retain the good name of Conservatism past the next two months.

What is to be believed, is that the 04 Ohio election, where only 60,000 votes gave Bush the majority, was settled not in the election booth, but by the computer company that handled all the Republican computer needs and those of the extreme Christian right.

Why is this coming to light now? Because tracing the emails around the attorney general blowup, led us to interesting results in the Ohio Department of elections.

Now if you believe the party is guilty, the evidence is damning. If you forever believe and trust the motives of your party, sort of the same way some in the 41st support Adkins, then you no doubt will dismiss the evidence as far fetched.

Here is the scoop. During the attorney general information dump, an email account surfaced : SJennings@gwb43.com.

gwb43.com? What kind of email address is that? Nah, it is too obvious. But then, we are talking Republicans here, not the most computer literate of the world’s citizens, as George W. Bush himself admitted here:

I tend not to e-mail – not only tend not to e-mail, I don’t e-mail, uh, because of, uh, the different record requests that could happen to a president. I don’t want to receive e-mails, ’cause, you know, there’s no telling what somebody would e-mail me and it would show up as, uh, you know, part of some kind of a story that – and I wouldn’t be able to say, ‘Well, I didn’t read the e-mail’ – ‘But I sent it your address; how can you say you didn’t?’ So, in other words, I’m very cautious about e-mailing.”

Who is gwb43? Well, a simple WHOIS gwb43 yields this:

Domain servers in listed order:

NS1.CHA.SMARTECHCORP.NET
A.NS.TRESPASSERS-W.NET

Okay, RNC too smooth. Couldn’t a fake name be used if this was for real? But Smartechcorp ? Where have we heard of that name before. Oh, yes, they hosted the internet needs of the Republican National Convention back in 2004. They received from the Republican National Committee 2.3 mil in 2004. In 2006 they received from Republicans 3.3 mil according to campaign records.

So why does Ohio’s election’s IP address flip over to Smartechcorp on election night? Smartechcorp was the carrier for the GOP domains of all the states that just happened to be too tight to call. Notice they carried PA, Ohio, and Florida GOP sites, but none of the GOP sights in either heavily Republican or heavily Democratic states.

Perhaps the Ohio election sent their data to Smartechcorp because they did not feel up to the challenge. Or perhaps Blackwell did it for other nefarious reasons. One wonders why they never got their results back. The link leads nowhere.

So if Ohio Department of Elections did indeed transfer its IP address to this company, than anyone with administrator priveleges anywhere, GWB43, or any other Republican operative, could, and it is traceable, have:

” linked between the tabulator and the election results host for the updating. That would have been configured either by the tabulator company (Diebold) or the RNC. If badly configured, this could have allowed open access to the tabulator results from anyone with admin access to the RNC owned SMARTECH host. This would have given Blackwell plausible deniability. “Just let our techies configure that uplink there…).

If the SMARTECH host server was used in this way, it’s illegal because political parties aren’t allowed to access raw election data.

If this is not a hoax and insuppressible evidence over the entire internet determines this to be true, then for the past three years we have had an imposter president setting policy for our nation’s future. No wonder he feels accountable to no one, be it Congress, voters, or our own military leaders.

And that, in most people’s opinion, would be a good enough reason for impeachment. Just one request, can we get Cheney out the way first?
