If Clinton were stealing elections – do you think the news media would cover it?
In December 2004, computer programmer Clint Curtis swore in an affidavit that he was asked in 2000 by (now) US Congressman Tom Feeney (R-FL) to design a software prototype that could “flip” the vote in South Florida voting machines.
That affidavit was first published by blogger Brad Friedman of BradBlog.com. Shortly thereafter, Curtis, in sworn public testimony, shared the details of this story with Democratic members of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee who were investigating election fraud charges in Ohio.
In 2000, Curtis was working for a Florida software company called Yang Enterprises Inc. (YEI). Feeney, who was then the incoming Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, was, at the same time, general counsel for YEI and its registered lobbyist. He had previously been Jeb Bush’s 1994 running mate for Florida Governor and continues to be a close ally of the Bush family.
Feeney has refused public comment on the matter, while YEI and their attorney (Feeney’s former law partner) have denied such an event took place. But the alibis of both Feeney and YEI have been repeatedly discredited and debunked by the reporting of Brad Friedman since December.
Clint Curtis, on the other hand, has a solid record as a whistleblower. He told Florida officials that another YEI employee, an illegal Chinese alien named Hai Lin “Henry” Nee, was engaged in high-tech espionage for China. Nee was subsequently indicted by the feds on related charged and pled guilty last year. YEI’s CEO, Mrs. Li-Woan Yang, still denies that Nee worked for them, despite federal reports and weekly time records published on The BRAD BLOG which prove otherwise.
The Florida Inspector General who originally investigated Curtis’ claims was found dead in a Georgia motel room two weeks after he told Curtis that “this goes all the way to the top.” Police called it a “suicide,” but Friedman has discovered a number of troubling new facts and inconsistencies about the police “investigation” (which was re-opened after Friedman’s reporting emerged on the Internet) including photographs of the crime scene which the police had previously said in their report did not exist.
Clint Curtis’ story has quietly rocked top Republicans from Tallahassee to Capitol Hill. Newspaper accounts of Curtis’ affidavit and testimony have been published in various local papers (Feeney’s hometown letter received a legal threat from both Feeney and YEI when they ran their story), yet the national media has largely been silent on this story despite the reams of public records, court documents and other hard evidence which confirm Curtis’ story while continually debunking both Feeney’s and YEI’s explanations.
