Statement by Samuel P. New and Margaret E. Taylor

Today at approximately 2:38PM, we entered the office building at 1200 New Hampshire Ave., NW in Washington, DC in order to serve Janet Brown at the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) with papers handed down by Judge Pendleton Gaines, Superior Court Judge in Maricopa County, AZ. In the lobby of the office building at 1200 New Hampshire Ave., NW. we were greeted by Officer S. Mack and another security officer. Officer Mack telephoned CPD to inform them of our visit and purpose. CPD refused to allow us to proceed to their office, on the fourth floor. We asked for the name of the person refusing to accept our materials, and the security officers informed us they did not know. We asked if we could wait in the lobby, while we placed a telephone call, we were told no, we would have to go outside. After consulting Geoff Neale, we returned to the lobby and left papers with Officer Mack, who told us that they were not accepted. We then left the building. This dialogue is documented with digital pictures and an audio cassette which was recorded in plain view, and I spoke directly into it.

It seems to me that every “Anyone But Bush” bumper sticker I see is highlighted followed up by a John Kerry sticker to its right (or slightly above). But how good an alternative is JFK?

Is it that we don’t have the energy to side-by-side more than two candidates? Does “la Prensa diablos” not have enough correspondents to cover any other players in this race? Where’s the break down occuring here. It’s almost like the Olympic committee saying, “the U.S. and China can play because we already know their politics but Burundi is out.”
