Electoral deform commission

John Conyers (D-MI) has said of the stacked Baker-Carter commission: "I think we should all be very wary of this Commission's objectives." In a conversation with a testy Robert Pastor, Exec. Dir. of the commission, Bradblog is essentially told that input from Americans on the workings of their Democracy is unwelcome "harassment" and that reform groups have been "heard." To which Brad replied: "what good is 'hearing' us?... you asked on your web page for input from Americans after all -- will you place Velvet Revolution or any of our affiliates on the commission? Since not one of them -- over 100 Election Reform and Voting Rights groups -- was even invited to participate in this commission?" (Bradblog)
