RTA election fraud suit under advisement

Pima County Superior Court Judge Kyle Bryson has taken under advisement the matter of whether Pima County’s alleged voter fraud in the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) election on May 16, 2006 will be heard in Court. The Arizona Court of Appeals overturned a previous decision by Judge Harrington that his court did not have jurisdiction and remanded the case. Judge Bryson was assigned the case late last year.

A packed courtroom listened as attorney Bill Risner respectfully told the Judge Bryson that the previous judge had made a mistake, and “now is your chance to fix it.” The judge will most likely decide whether to fix the mistake or not within the next 30 days. Plaintiffs do not expect a ruling before the current Primary Election is over.

At the time of the RTA bond election, questions arose regarding the election results almost immediately. They persist in this lawsuit in Arizona Superior Court.

County races, including large bond elections are currently exempted from a hand count of the votes, which increases the concern about election fraud.

The stated goal of a lawsuit filed in Arizona Superior Court by Tucson attorney Bill Risner on behalf of the Libertarian Party is “to protect the “purity of elections” in the future, starting with the 2012 elections. According to attorney Bill Risner, the lawsuit is based on two facts; “At the present time it is easy to cheat using our election computers and impossible to challenge a rigged election.”

The lawsuit alleges that “Pima County, through the direction and control of its county administrator C.H. “Chuck” Huckleberry, has systematically subverted critical controls required to protect the purity of elections. The elimination of those controls has permitted county management to take advantage of the ability to cheat presented by defects in our computerized election system.”

The central allegation in the suit is that “county management fraudulently rigged the Regional Transportation Authority election.”

The Pima County Democratic Party had previously taken on the issue. It was through the Discovery process in that effort, that the current suit bases its allegations. In papers filed with the court, lawyers claim that from “three other lawsuits involving the Pima County Democratic Party and Pima County,” a path was provided “for future discovery that must be followed in this lawsuit.”

The Libertarian Party argues that “The ease of cheating when matched with the impossibility of challenging any specific election requires court intervention in order to protect the purity of elections and ensure that we will have free elections.” They cite three Arizona Constitution sections as the basis of their claim, including Arizona Constitution Art. 2 § 21, which requires all elections to be “free and equal.”

Plaintiffs say that the most important legal and factual building block of this lawsuit is the agreed upon fact that it is very easy to cheat with our election computer software. In the suit, it is alleged that “the ease of cheating may be counterintuitive, especially among those least familiar with computers, but it is a fact. The ease of cheating may be a surprise even to those who are familiar with computers but whose familiarity was derived from securely developed programs. Our election computer system has quite simply been built to cheat and, at least for that goal, it has succeeded.”

Both conservative and liberal activists hold that the goal of the lawsuit is to make elections a transparent process by removing Pima County’s ability to cheat undetected. They have fought for over six years of litigation for the courts to decide they indeed have jurisdiction to ensure clean elections.

  1. Kudos to Bill Risner. There is no way in hades that a majority of people voted for the RTA.

  2. Another example of the pervasive corruption of Pima County. Just ask yourself the question, “Why are Pima County elections exempt from hand counts?” The answer usually is so the powerful can stay in power.

  3. Check out True the Vote.com. We have got to make these bureaucrats & professional politicians accountable. Go Bill Beard. Round ’em up and clean ’em out. Now is our chance.

    I voted against the RTA, too, and I’ll tell you why I did it…

    -No transportation plan has a realistic chance of success without the inclusion of a crosstown freeway

    -We were promised that Aviation would connect to I-10. After roughly 15 years of the rest of it being finished, I am still seeing no effort to fulfill the promise…and it wasn’t included on the RTA, either.

    -It was a 30-year plan, presented in ’06, which will bring our community to roughly a 2006 level of development in the year 2036. I was already sick of a far outdated transportation model and didn’t want to vote for it to continue.

    Now, it is past time for the RTA to go because they’re sinking so much money into the stupid choo choo train, which will be nothing but a money pit for our community.

    Question are the ballots still in existence? They ruled a few years ago not to allow hand count and seemed like they destroyed the evidence.

  7. How about the purple finger approach? Sounds more likely to be honest than the current voting boths.

  8. I have an idea that won’t cost us anything. Let’s throw it on the November ballot, and count them up. What do you say?

    There’s more than one way to flush out a fraud. Why do these ballot props always seem to harm the voter?

    • Why do these ballot props always seem to harm the voter?

      Greed and corruption!

      Fact I learned; they didn’t steal $2 billion in tax money. They stole $2 billion dollars from working families to help developers and affluent bedroom communities. It was not tax money when they stole it. They stole it from people and made it tax money.

      “Summary of This Lawsuit” The Libertarian Party and AUDIT-AZ alleges that Pima County, through the direction and control of its county administrator C.H. “Chuck” Huckelberry, has systematically subverted critical controls required to protect the purity of elections. The elimination of those controls has permitted county management to take advantage of the ability to cheat presented by defects in our computerized election system. As a result, county management fraudulently rigged the Regional Transportation Authority election on May 16, 2006 and has the ability to manipulate the outcome of any Pima County election, including not only bond elections, but the elections of members of the Board of Supervisors, themselves.

      Discovery on this lawsuit has not begun but many facts are known from the three other lawsuits: http://tinyurl.com/5wda8gl involving the Pima County Democratic Party and Pima County. The discovery in those cases was limited but nonetheless has shown the path for future discovery that must be followed in this lawsuit.

      The goal of this lawsuit is to protect the “purity of elections” in the future, starting with the 2012 elections. At the present time it is easy to cheat using our election computers and impossible to challenge a rigged election. The ease of cheating when matched with the impossibility of challenging any specific election requires court intervention in order to protect the purity of elections and ensure that we will have free elections.
