Massachusetts electors pass unanimous resolution calling for an investigation

From the Coalition Against Election Fraud(CAEF.US):

We are pleased that the Massachusetts electors have passed a unanimous resolution calling for an investigation into the voting irregularities in the 2004 Presidential election.

The following is a motion made by Tom Barbera and the other Massachusetts electors. The electors passed the motion unanimously. Mr. Barbera received a standing ovation after he read it out loud.

I move that we, the duly sworn electors of Massachusetts, call on Congress and especially the honorable members of our MA congressional delegation as follows:

We believe that as electors we have a unique opportunity and obligation to insure that justice does not again become so delayed as to be denied. We call on the Congress of the United States and most especially our own honorable representatives, the members of the Massachusetts Congressional delegation to:

1. Act to commit Congress to investigate all voting complaints that might have any validity that they receive.

2. Act to commit Congress to remedy any voting rights violations or electoral fraud verified by its own agents or through the courts.

3. File in Congress and commit their resources to passage of systematic remedies.

Tom Barbera made his own statement as he cast his vote for President and Vice President:

We believe in one nation under God and we recognize as in the words of the great leader Martin Luther King Jr. that "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." And we recognize our obligation as citizens of one nation to stand up for the equal rights for all members of our national community. We do believe that all people are created equal, and we hold precious the sacred right to vote, which our forefathers enshrined in the very Constitution that we have just sworn as electors to uphold and as citizens of Massachusetts, where we count every vote.
