Let The Election Shenanigans Begin!

Via Steven D at BooTrib, a tale horrific enough to satisfy any of your Halloween fright needs.
Several South Florida voters say the choices they touched on the electronic screens were not the ones that appeared on the review screen -- the final voting step. [...]

Debra A. Reed voted with her boss on Wednesday at African-American Research Library and Cultural Center near Fort Lauderdale. Her vote went smoothly, but boss Gary Rudolf called her over to look at what was happening on his machine. He touched the screen for gubernatorial candidate Jim Davis, a Democrat, but the review screen repeatedly registered the Republican, Charlie Crist.


How come the voters never switch from Republican to Democrat? Just askin'...

Ahh the joys of living in a country where the corporate voter yanks our chains and lifts our assets. Perhaps Diebold will find it expedient to their bottom line this year and decide their little honeymoon with the GOP is over.

From the 'You Can't Make This Mierda Up' Department: a federal investigation is being launched against a voting machine company. Think it's Diebold? Har Har.

In order to redefine irony in the dictionary, this probe has the added bonus of deflecting attention away from the issue of verified voting and re-resurrecting the specter of the "Madman Liberal Latino From South America Who Dares Speak Ill of Dear Leader".

A U.S. manufacturer of touch-screen voting machines confirmed Sunday it was being investigated by the federal government for alleged ties to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez but flatly denied any connection.

Sequoia Voting Systems, based in Oakland, Calif., said the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, or CFIUS, was conducting the formal inquiry into it as well as its parent software company, the Smartmatic Corp., at the firms' request after news articles suggested improper ties.

Good Morning America - do you know who your Corporate Overlords are?
