Nice work Mike I was just going to post this myself!! Let's bombard these guys with some kind persuasive emails and calls!

Iowans for Tax Relief and Iowa Christian Alliance will host a
presidential candidates forum on Saturday, June 30th in Des
Moines.  Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Sam
Brownback, Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, Tommy Thompson, and Tom
Tancredo will participate.

Ron Paul, however, will not participate.  Why?  Because he wasn't
invited.

We heard about this forum from numerous supporters in Iowa who
asked why Dr. Paul was not going to participate.  Those supporters
assumed that Dr. Paul was invited.

The campaign office had not received an invitation so we called
this morning; thinking we might have misplaced the invitation or
simply overlooked it.  Lew Moore, our campaign manager, called
Mr. Edward Failor, an officer of Iowans for Tax Relief, to ask
about it.  To our shock, Mr. Failor told us Dr. Paul was not
invited; he was not going to be invited; and he would not be
allowed to participate.  And when asked why, Mr. Failor refused
to explain.  The call ended.

Lew then called Mr. Steve Sheffler, president of the Iowa
Christian Alliance, to talk with him.  Mr. Sheffler did not
answer so Lew left a message.  He has yet to respond.

Why are the Iowans for Tax Relief and the Iowa Christian Alliance
excluding the one Republican candidate who scored at the top of
every online poll taken after the MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN
debates?  Why are they denying Iowans the opportunity to hear
from the Republican presidential candidate whose popularity is
growing by the day?

We couldn't get answers to these questions from Messrs. Failor
and Sheffler.  Maybe you'll have better luck.  Their contact
information is below.

It's ironic that on the same day we learned the Iowans for Tax
Relief and the Iowa Christian Alliance excluded Dr. Paul from
their candidates forum, we received a call from ABC News
confirming Dr. Paul's participation in its nationally broadcast
August 5th debate to be held in Des Moines.

Subject: [ronpaul-93] Apply to vote absentee and potential for Diebold voter fraud

All,

Please encourage everyone voting for Ron Paul to apply for absentee voting:
http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/elections_m.htm 

The county statistics show that the percentage of absentee voters that actually vote is much higher than non-absentee registered voters.  The % registered voters that actually voted in the '04 primary election was 46% whereas that for absentee voters was 73%:
  http://www.sdcounty.ca.gov/voters/Eng/reports/Voter_Turnouts.pdf

Also, this leaves a paper trail and is potentially less likely to fraud than directly using the Diebold electronic voting machines (although it seems that the absentee ballots are themselves counted through Diebold machines):
