Richard Hayes Phillips presents his new book, Witness to a Crime: A Citizens' Audit of an American Election.
Richard Hayes Phillips has been the leading investigator of the rigging of the 2004 presidential election in Ohio, the state that decided the election. His work was relied upon by John Conyers in challenging the Ohio electors in Congress, by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in his article for Rolling Stone, and by Algernon L. Marbley in issuing his federal court order protecting the disputed ballots from destruction. Assisted by teams of volunteers equipped with digital cameras, Phillips amassed some 30,000 images of forensic evidence. Then he analyzed it all himself, examining 126,000 ballots, 127 poll books, and 141 voter signature books from 18 counties in Ohio.
Phillips first began investigating the Ohio election when he received unsolicited e-mail containing obviously erroneous election results from Cleveland. He quickly found that hundreds of votes in certain precincts had inexplicably shifted from John Kerry to other presidential candidates. This made him a witness to a crime, with a duty to investigate further and to present his findings publicly. The result is his book _Witness to a Crime_. It is an investigative report and eyewitness history, the document of record for what really happened in Ohio.
Copies of _Witness to a Crime_ will be available for purchase and signing.
