Lynette Long - August 2008


In two weeks the Democratic Party will formally nominate Barack Obama as its candidate for President of the United States.

It's the triumph of fraud.

I've spent the past two months immersed in data from the 2008 Democratic caucuses. After studying the procedures and results from all fourteen caucus states, interviewing dozens of witnesses, and reviewing hundreds of personal stories, my conclusion is that the Obama campaign willfully and intentionally defrauded the American public by systematically undermining the caucus process.

This site represents the fruits of my research. It's a work in progress, obviously, and also a central repository for a vast array of data: articles and blog posts from around the web, personal emails to me, interviews with witnesses, affidavits and testimonials, campaign communications, and videos of the caucuses themselves.

I have elected to make this information public. I hope that it sheds light on the caucus process and inspires reform or total elimination of the caucuses. I also hope it gives pause to those Democrats who believe that Barack Obama is the rightful nominee and that Hillary supporters should just "get over it." I have been a Democrat my entire life, but I will not support the Democratic Party at the cost of democracy.

    Great info. I hope this will influence the DNC to do away with caucuses, which make no more sense than picking candidates using a crystal ball.

    I've been following her preliminary work for awhile now. The fact that she is not some extremist or conspiracy theorist made me take her seriously. She's done her homework but if the media will not pick up on it I imagine the Republicans will.

    Um, John McCain (R) is doing rather well against Obama in the polls. I doubt he would fare so well against Sen. Clinton, so I wouldn't count on the republicans taking up the flag of justice (or injustice) on this matter.

    Meanwhile Dr. Long does make a solid case for corruption within the Obama campaign. Once again, American voters have been robbed of their voting power. Thanks for the great post, Heart.
