President telephoned the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections regarding election
fraud in a Cleveland suburb where he voted, and observed fraud first hand.
Fred Taub stated: "I was in line to vote, and there
was an African American gentleman who was in line behind me registering. I
overheard the conversation regarding problems with his registration, as his ID
did not match his registration, and he was also marked as having an absentee
ballot. After being sent to the line for a provisional ballot, which is the
proper procedure, he was sent back to the regular voting line, despite not
presenting any utility bills or other identification indicating his proper

election official identified as Maureen clearly did not like the fact that I
went over her head by calling the BOE, was holding the ballot of the said
gentleman in her hands as I left, and may have later cast the actual ballot in
the ballot reader after I left, but I have no way of knowing.
"In the mean time, the African American gentleman
was a probable Obama supporter demographically, and soon after, I was informed
that a demographically potential McCain supporter with the same type of address
discrepancy problem was denied the right to vote. I see this as voter profiling
to sway the elections.
"I want to know if the
election worker was using her power to push votes. Regardless, the election
official appears to be playing politics with votes, which is illegal. The
Cuyahoga County Board of Elections has been notified, and I am awaiting a
