The County's Response to Our Election-Integrity Coverage--and a Response to That

Posted By on Wed, Nov 12, 2008 at 9:05 AM

In our Oct. 23 issue, our cover story and our Editor's Note focused on Pima County elections security. The story was an examination of various claims election-integrity activists are making against the county's Elections Division; the Ed Note made the case that Elections Director Brad Nelson should be relieved of his duties.

These stories apparently touched a nerve with the county. After a conversation with Tom Lee, the Weekly's publisher, Chuck Huckelberry sent to us a response to the Oct. 23 stories.

In an effort to be fair, we're running Huckelberry's entire response in the Nov. 13 print edition, except for a testimony excerpt we could not fit in. You can find Huckelberry's response--exactly as he sent it to us--here.

Meanwhile, Bill Risner--the lawyer for the Democratic Party who was a key player in getting the whole election-integrity ball rolling here in Pima County--also got hold of a copy of Huckelberry's response to the Weekly. In response to Huckelberry, he typed up a letter, which can be found here.

We're continuing to follow the elections-integrity story--and stand fully behind all of our previous coverage.
