News Advisory:

The myth that the 2004 elections ran "smoothly" keeps growing.

It's a crock.

The truth is, that while the massive Election Protection program assisted millions of Americans, it also exposed:

-- shocking inequities in our voting system for minority and low-income voters

-- tremendous problems with voting technology and election worker training, and,

-- continuing attempts at deliberate voter intimidation and suppression.

It's time to shatter the rose-colored glasses of the politicians and the pundits and take a real look at what happened, from the perspective of the people on the ground who watched it unfold. On Monday, People For the American Way Foundation, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights under Law and the NAACP will release preliminary findings from their work on the Election Protection program, and disclose the reports gathered by more than 25,000 Election Protection volunteers, including more than 8,000 lawyers, who monitored the polls at more than 3,500 precincts nationwide and answered the Election Protection Hotline.

What: Release of Election Protection Findings for the 2004 Election

Who:

-- Ralph G. Neas, president, People For the American Way Foundation -- Barbara Arnwine, executive director, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law -- Julian Bond, chairman of the Board, NAACP

Where: National Press Building (13th Floor), 14th & F Streets NW, Washington, D.C. -- Lisagor Room

When: Monday, Dec. 6 at 9:15 a.m.

A light breakfast will be available.

Just a new permutation of the victim mentality. They keep adding new tools to the tool box.
