Testimony Described as 'Show Stopper'!
'Stunner', 'Jaws Dropped'!
Audible 'Gasps' heard in chamber room!


The BRAD BLOG has just received an exclusive first-hand account of Clint Curtis' sworn testimony (as reported earlier) to the Judiciary Committee Democrats holding hearings this morning in Columbus, Ohio on Election 2004 Voting Irregularities.

The software programmer, whose sworn affidavit was first reported by The BRAD BLOG, named Republican U.S. Congressman Tom Feeney (a Republican member of the Judiciary Committee!) as having asked him to create "vote-rigging" software in a meeting at Yang Enterprises, Inc. (YEI) prior to the 2000 elections!

Feeney was, at the time of the alleged meeting, a Florida legislator and later became Speaker of the Florida House. He was also the running mate to Jeb Bush in his failed 1994 bid for Florida Governor.

Curtis was the only witness to be sworn in at today's hearings.

Here is the exclusive account as we've just received it by a very reliable BRAD BLOG source inside the committee hearings!

The following account may sound melodramatic but it is highly accurate.

None of these are quotes and represent my best recollection.

At apprx 1p, after a witness had finished, cliff arnebeck -- who had given a presentation some time before -- interjected and asked to call one more witness. He was given permission to do so. He said he was calling clint curtis.

Some of the audience literally gasped while others applauded. They clearly knew who he was.

Curtis stood at the front of room with arnebeck seated behind him. Curtis was about five to ten feet from the members of congress. At the front of the room, he placed his hand on a bible and was sworn. To my knowledge, he was the only witness sworn.

Arnebeck began a direct examination of curtis with basic questions, name, residence....

Then got to his qualifications.

Then, he asked curtis something like whether voting machines could be hacked. He said yes. Arnebeck asked him on what he based that opinion. He said because I wrote a program that could do it. Arnebeck asked when that happened. Curtis said feeney had asked him to design such a program at yang enterprises.

Jaws dropped. Tubbs jones and waters looked shocked.

Tubbs jones, waters and nadler asked questions. Waters asked him to repeat who asked him to do it. Congressman feeney, he said. Nadler asked him some questions, as did tubbs jones and a state senator.

Curtis was asked what he would conclude if there was such a substantial deviation btwn exit polls and actual results. He said he would conclude the election had been hacked. Gasps. Could have heard a pin drop.

In the end, curtis was very very convincing to everyone in attendance. He was a show stopper, a stunner. It was a really amazing moment.


As we've previously reported since breaking our original exclusive story on the Curtis affidavit [PDF] last week (Key articles are linked in a box in our right sidebar) Curtis last week met privately with staffers on the Judiciary Committee as well as Senate staffers.

Wired Magazine revealed today in their article on Curtis that it was staffers in Sen. Bill Nelson's office with whom Curtis met last week in D.C.

Nelson oversees NASA in the Senate. Curtis had charged in his affidavit that an employee, Hai Lin Nee (a/k/a Henry Nee) with whom Curtis worked at Yang Enterprises, Inc. (YEI) had inserted "wiretapping routines" into programs that YEI had been contracted to create for NASA, among other companies (including the Florida Dept. of Transportation).

Nee was charged with shipping chips used in Hellfire anti-tank missiles to the Peoples Republic of China in March of this year, and has since plead guilty to one of those counts (more on Nee soon!)

At the time of the alleged October 2000 meeting at YEI when Curtis claims that Feeney asked him to create a "vote-rigging software prototype", Feeney was a member of the Florida Legislature, a corporate attorney for YEI, as well as being a registered lobbyist for the company.

Feeney was said to have been, at the time, the only registered lobbyist known to have been serving concurrently as a legislator in the 160 member Florida statehouse.

Shortly thereafter, Feeney became Speaker of the Florida Legislature.

In 2002 Feeney won a U.S. Congress seat in the newly created 24th Florida congressional district.

Feeney was the running mate to Jeb Bush during his first failed bid for Governor in 1994.

As we noted earlier, Wired Magazine article quotes YEI Attorneys as saying that Curtis was a "disgruntled employee", but does not note that the Attorney who made the statement is both a campaign contributor to Feeney, and, as well, is Feeney's former law partner in Florida.

As well, there seems to be little to indicate that Curtis was "disgruntled" with YEI or vice versa. He submitted his resignation in December of 2000 and stayed on, at YEI's request for an additional six weeks afterwards until a replacment could be found.

It has been reported YEI threw a "farewell party" for Curtis, and email correspondce that The BRAD BLOG has seen would indicate that employees -- including Nee -- missed Curtis a great deal in the months after he finally left the company.


UPDATE: Video of portions of Curtis' testimony now available online!

Cspan reported they were going to cover this hearing, then said there was a schedule change and that they would show it at 4:30pm Eastern. So far, nothing on.

Press Secretary Scotty must have exerted some pressure to keep this from getting out to national television.

/Bleh. Stay tuned to Brad; he'll be most likely to keep us up to date.

I've passed along your most recent posting to the "Tavis Smiley Show." Am in awe that main stream media has not made one mention of this dramatic event. Even if they thought Curtis a "nutcase," one would imagine this warrants mention. Fear, coupled with lack of information, allows those in power the greatest control. I concur with LouderLouder; we must speak out, loud and often.

This is for Adam:
I spoke to someone in archives at C-SPAN, who said it was covered last week, but was not covered today. This same person at C-SPAN said there were problems securing a meeting place, which made it difficult to provide coverage.
How convenient.

Just read on Reuters that NASA Chief, O'Keefe is leaving his position. Wonder if there is any connection to the happenings of the Curtis story! Seems like a lot of changes going on in so many places.
Thanks Brad for staying with this Curtis story and keeping us all posted!

Way cool Brad, the smile is back. Man it's sweet... feeling hope again. KUDOs!!!

To those who would like to speak on the way to the streets, here's a good starting place:

It's a web email app that looks up your district's Congressmen and Senator, then sends an email in your name stating your position on The Vote. I urge everyone to take advantage and tag your friends to do the same.

Beckerman has the above link on his site ( as well as some docs on todays events.

I'm running out of long distance minutes on my cell phone shaming the mainstream media into coverage. Lets all grab some air time whadd'ya think?

Thanks Brad!

I was looking up some info on today's meeting, and the House Judiciary Comittee has a list of participants and witnesses here (pdf). Curtis isn't on the list. Any reason why?

12/13/2004 9:12 PM  
Blogger BradF said...

Curtis was not to have been a witness. He was called unexpectedly up to testify by Cliff Arnebeck.

Just one of the reasons the whole event was such a stunner!

Video now available for you non-believer types out there ;-)

I just called my local philadelphia abc tipline to try to apply pressure. The lady who answered initially acted as though she was unfamiliar w/ the Ohio situation. After I ran down the list of Diebold, Clint Curtis, John Conyers, etc. she cryptically told me that she wasn't aware of any of this stuff as she had just gotten back from a FUNERAL. I had the distinct impression that she was trying to convey to me that to cover this story is to risk an "accident". Make no mistake about it people, the press is scared of dying and nobody at the top is going to let this story on anyway. My humble suggestion is this: Pressure the media as much as possible but remember that YOU are the only media you can trust. Make yourself a little folder w/ all the facts and see how many strangers a day you can convince that fraud happened, or there is a least that possibility. Then tell them to do the same. It is up to us to convince the public person by person, exponentially of what has happened. Don't despair or simply fester in impotent anger. DO SOMETHING!
