February was a busy month!

I've written brief descriptions of the various activites I've done this month.  There will be more details at the linked blog posts. 

I went to Topeka twice last month, I spoke to a rather large crowd at the request of the League of Women Voters on the 2nd, and on the 15th to the Kansas House Elections Committee on new legislation requiring audits of our voting equipment after every election

There was my hearing on the 18th. The outcome was disappointing to say the least.  No trial next month.  An appeal will be filed instead.  But the people that came were awesome.  People I had never met handed me buttons saying "Show Me The Votes" and bumper stickers like one adorning this message.  There were a lot of people there!  

On the 19th, I was back in NE Kansas, giving a talk at the KU Law School Symposium on election law and voting rights. I'm afraid I may have inadvertently horrified some of people there.   Without thinking about it, just giving my honest reading of some of my data analysis charts, I basically implied that our Governor did not win reelection honestly. 

Finally, having given the matter a great deal of thought, I have a few ideas about what to do next. Best idea I've got: If the folks who were caring enough to attend my hearing are willing to put in a few hours of volunteer time on election day, we could perform a citizens exit poll in November.  

Thank you all for listening.
