Posted on 10/03/2004 6:13:37 PM PDT by AmericanMade1776
Democratic Presidential Candidate John Kerry may have violated the rules governing last Thursday's presidential debate.
According to Section 5 (pps 4 and 5) of the Memorandum of Understanding that was negotiated and agreed upon by both the Bush and Kerry campaigns:
(c) No props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by either candidate. ...
(d) Notwithstanding subparagraph 5(c), the candidates may take notes during the debate on the size, color and type of paper each side prefers. Each candidate must submit to the staff of the Commission prior to the debate all such paper and any pens or pencils with which a candidate may wish to take notes during the debate, and the staff or commission will place such paper, pens and pencils on the podium, table or other structure to be used by the candidate in that debate.
On Sunday, INDC Journal and Daily Recycler produced a video and close-up stills showing that Senator Kerry apparently violated the rules signed by his campaign.
The video shows Kerry pulling what looks like crib notes from his jacket and placing them on his lectern at the start of the debate.
The website zombietime.com has posted a frame-by-frame view of the event here.
Use of crib notes during the debate would constitute a material breach of Memorandum of Understanding, though it is unclear if Kerry would be sanctioned.

I hope to see the Kerry campaign squirming by tomorrow.
Great! This is hitting other sources! Wooo hooo!
yes, but the MSM wont pick it up and most people will be like.. so?
It stinks that the dims keep breaking rules (and laws) to get thier power back.. but thats life i suppose.
The point is that the story is appearing elsewhere-- it's picking up steam, hopefully.
Kerry has some major explaining to do, as to why he thinks the rules do not apply to him. For all we know, Kerry had a hand held palm computer at his podium.
Did Kerry cheat? Yes.
Cheating in elections is what the 'Rats do. I'm amazed that everyone seems so shocked by it.
Its been on Fox too.
But now the story's been picked up outside the VRWC echo chamber. That's news.
I am not shocked, Somewhere in Virginia, some computers where stolen from the Republican national committee people of Virginia....three of them....HANKY PANKY FROM THE LEFT ....
It was Washington state.
Maybe that's why Kerry was so smooth. BTW waht's on Bush's podium? I can't tell.
