On the air: Cliff Arnebeck and Steve Heller

Cliff Arnebeck, former AfD co-chair and lead attorney for plaintiffs in the King Lincoln Bronzeville v. Blackwell suit, will be a guest tomorrow (Friday, 7/25) on VoteRescue Radio, from 7 to 9 p.m. VoteRescue Radio can be heard on the 'net at

Cliff announced last week that he is filing a motion to "lift the stay in the case [and] proceed with targeted discovery in order to help protect the integrity of the 2008 election."

In the King Lincoln Bronzeville case, individuals and voting rights groups have filed suit against former Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, alleging that he allocated election resources in a racially discriminatory manner and purged voters from the rolls along race lines. This led to disenfranchisement of voters due to ballot cancellations, tampering, long poll lines, difficulties with voting machines, and unclear precinct boundaries.

This case has the potential to put some of the most powerful people in the country in jail, according to Arnebeck, as he was joined by a well-respected, life-long Republican computer security expert Stephen Spoonamore, who charged that the red flags seen during Ohio's 2004 Presidential Election would have been cause for "a fraud investigation in a bank, but it doesn't when it comes to our vote."

Cliff was also the lead attorney in the 2004 "Moss v. Bush" case which challenged the certified electoral votes for the state of Ohio.

He'll be appearing with Steve Heller, election integrity activist and "Diebold Whistle-blower" (he's featured in a video clip from the new film Uncounted which we posted here.) You can read press related to his case here.

In addition to the internet stream, VoteRescue Radio can also be heard over the phone at 512/485-9010. All shows are also archived at the above web site, usually within a couple of hours after 8pm CDT. The call-in number is 512-646-1984.
