On May 20, 2015, the UDC Clarke School of Law hosted a book talk onCODE RED:  Computerized Election Theft and the New American Century by Jonathan Simon, a Boston-based attorney and co-founder and director of the Election Defense Alliance The program was kicked off by Andrea Miller, Director of  People Demanding Action, who provided a brief history of politics and methods used to suppress votes and voters starting with slavery.  

Jonathan Simon spoke, not only on the facts and history of computerized election fraud - which he described as a "rolling coup" - but also on the difficult challenge of maintaining optimism in the face of the massive inertia that he and other election integrity activists have faced.  He spoke of the clear need for a mass movement in protection of democracy against the forces of anti-democracy.  

After Simon's frank and sobering talk, Virginia Martin, Co-Election Commissioner of Columbia County, NY, described her own very positive experience, working with a Republican co-commissioner, to assure 100% hand-counted, completely transparent, observable audits of voted ballots since optical-scan voting machines were introduced in her county, providing a national model for optical-scan using jurisdictions nationwide. 

All three speakers then responded to numerous questions from the audience.  Of particular interest was the potential for the use of Ms. Martin's auditing technique nationally and the enormous potential to ally "traditional" groups working against voter suppression with the election integrity movement.

Unfortunately, University of Pennsylvania professor and researcher Steve Freeman, author of Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen: Exit Polls, Election Fraud, and the Official Count" was unable to participate.
