Veterans Votes Disappearing?

From Gathering of Eagles:
Veterans’ Votes Disappear

Last Tuesday, 6 November, 2007, was Election Day here in Philadelphia. On an
average Election Day there are between 100 and 150 absentee ballots
from active duty service members. This election there were 8. Maybe
only 8 men and women voted. Maybe this is much ado about nothing, but it does seem suspicious. Special Forces officer David Oh was on the ballot for a City Council At-Large seat. It is a close election. Votes are still being tallied. Currently only about a dozen votes separate him and his challenger.

We are actively soliciting anyone from Philadelphia, PA who has a relative serving overseas. If any of them voted we would like to know. Please contact us with their names so we can check them against the list of absentee ballots. If service men or women were denied their right to vote, while actively helping to preserve democracy, we will not stand idly by. Put out the word. Email your lists and call your
friends. It is time for us, the Gathering of Eagles, to say we will not allow any ill treatment to befall our brave men and women in uniform. It is time for us to say, this is our line in the sand. This far, and no farther. Manchu.
