WASHINGTON -- November 19 -- Pat LaMarche, the Green Party's 2004 vice presidential candidate, will speak at a rally in Washington, D.C. on November 19 about the Ohio recount effort launched by the Cobb/LaMarche and Badnarik campaigns.

Ms. LaMarche will join Libertarian presidential candidate, Michael Badnarik, at a rally in front of the White House at LaFayette Park on Friday November 19 at noon. The rally has been organized by ReDefeatBush and other groups to protest the "botched" 2004 election and prepare for the "post-democracy era" under the second Bush Administration. The contact for ReDefeatBush is Joy Howell 202-828-7838, <joy@cambridgestrategicpartners.org>.

Citing widespread reports of voting irregularities, the Cobb/LaMarche and Badnarik campaigns recently launched a joint effort to hold a recount of presidential votes cast in Ohio during the November 2 election.

Ms. LaMarche will arrive in Washington, D.C. at 9 a.m. Friday morning and return to Maine at 6 p.m. the same evening. She can be reached by her cell phone at 646-202-0846 today or during the trip.

The Green-Libertarian recount effort has raised the necessary money to file for a recount, and is now raising money for monitoring the recount and related expenses.
