A Report on†the electoral crisis in the United States from the Teach-In called by outraged citizens across the country to deal with the stealing of the presidential election of 2004. Organized by the Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club and The MMOB, this was the First National Teach-in on Vote Fraud. It helped spark America's Election Protection Movement that is still working to fix our terribly broken electoral system. They're demanding true democracy - that every voter gets to vote and that every vote is counted as cast.
