The Bay Area has joined the movement to "Investigate Votergate." The Democracy Defense Committee called for a rally and civil disobedience at the San Francisco Federal Building on Wednesday, November 10, to "expose voter suppression and fraud and have ALL the votes counted before the Electoral College meets in mid-December." Groups such as Global Exchange, Code Pink, and Beyond Voting were represented at the rally. Photos: 1 | 2 | Video
