"Machine Vote-Flipping Claimed in McKinney Primary"
If you want a good sneak preview about the whining SURE to happen right after this November's elections, you need to look no further than the recent Democrat primary election in Georgia in which Cynthia McKinney claims that those nasty machines flipped votes away from her. Even though McKinney got the most votes in the election she is now aggravated that she is forced into a runoff due to not getting an outright majority. So does she blame herself for not bothering to show up for her election debate? No. It is the fault of the Diebold machines as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Machine Vote-Flipping Claimed in McKinney Primary." And if you think the incredible level of whining is bad now, just wait until right after the November elections. So let us now watch the whining over Diebold in Bold Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if a Diebold ATM machine could flip his $100 deposit into $10,000, is in the [brackets]:
Machine Vote-Flipping Claimed in McKinney Primary
[Multiply this headline about 300 times and you get an idea of the whine level following this November's elections.]
(APN) ATLANTA –“You’ve got electronic voting machines. Many people called in and shared their concern. They pushed the button for Cynthia McKinney and Hank Johnson came up. It wasn’t one time, it wasn’t two times, it was many, many times,” Karen Fitzpatrick, who has been monitoring elections for US Rep. McKinney’s re-election campaign, told Atlanta Progressive News in an exclusive interview.
[So did they complain RIGHT THERE at their election polling place when it happened or when they found out later that McKinney was forced into an inconvenient runoff election?]
Let me repeat: The McKinney Campaign says they have documented complaints of voters here in Georgia whose votes FLIPPED BEFORE THEIR VERY EYES on Diebold machines.
[Let me repeat: the McKinney mind FLIPPED BEFORE OUR VERY EYES.]
“It started early this morning. There were well over 25 to 30 calls that came in . Many of them went to the poll manager . In some cases, the poll managers said there’s nothing we can do. In some cases the voter left frustrated as if their vote had been compromised, as if it had been stolen,” Fitzpatrick said.
[Wrong. The poll workers can SHUT DOWN a machine if there are complaints about it. Also how many poll workers actually reported such complaints? Now on to the normal DUmmie paranoia...]
If it had happened to me and they told me nothing could be done... I'd have run around the voting precinct unplugging all of the PCs and calling 911!!!
[It didn't happen to you and it didn't even happen to them.]
Frankly I find this story hard to believe because out of dozens of people SOMEBODY is bound to blow a fuse and do something about it.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
I hope EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS that this is what is going to keep on happenin and will be widespread this November. I am not sure of what the solution is, but I do know that I would NOT be putting my vote on one of these machines.
[The solution is don't vote then you don't have to worry about your vote being flipped.]
If you're right, they can't get away with it forever
Sooner or later SOMEONE inside the conspiracy is going to get pissed off at his or her superiors and spill the beans. As you increase the number of people who are in on a secret, the chance of it getting compromised increases exponentially.
[And what a iron-tight conspiracy it must be involving THOUSANDS of voting precincts and many thousands more of poll workers yet not ONE has broken their oath of Omerta.]
They take advantage of people they know will not challenge them... they know they can win by a state of confusion, disorganization, and vague explanations and people just leave discouraged. We need Democrat cameras, managers at each poll place -- there must be a Plan B for problems.
[How about Democrats to accompany each and every voter into the poll booth to ensure that their vote goes correctly?]
If the machine is calibrated wrong ...and when people touch one candidate, another comes up, some people will complain and some won't.
[DUmmies will ALWAYS complain from the moment they see the Diebold name on their voting machines.]
Sooner or later that will happen to a Howard Beale And the secret will be out.
["I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GOING TO VOTE ANY LONGER!!!]
There are right ways and wrong ways to accomplish things. As one of the Dem officials, I would have taken the machine out of commission and handed th voter a provisional ballot. then you can the Board of Elections and report the error.
[And isn't it strange how that DIDN'T happen in the McKinney election? The complaints came in AFTER the voting happened.]
Something stinks to me as well. McKinney is the Republican's ideal opponent at this point. She got defeated in an election before and given her escapade on the Hill I don't see why she couldn't be defeated again this year. Why in the world would you rig the machine to give someone who's less controversial the primary win?
[And this DUmmie WINS a Cynthia McKinney Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity.]
I would have thrown all of the machines on the ground.
[Then handcuffed them and read them their Miranda rights.]
It does not matter that she won anyway. What matters is the behavior of the goddam machines!
[Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.]
Who is going to fix this before November????????????
What are you going to do to help get this fixed.??? Not meant to be a bitch about this...but having watched the 2004 get stolen and no noticeable movement of people outraged about it in the streets ( I do realize some did, maybe even you did) but until the fat asses get moving and voicing their outrage in the streets and on EVERY street corner...nothing is gonna change and your rights will continue to be stripped away at every turn....
[ALL your Diebolds belong to US!!!]
May I suggest that someone first get some hard evidence of a problem? The more I think about it, the more skeptical I am of hearsay about machines doing weird things. This one is especially troubling because, putting on my tinfoil Conspiracy theory hat, I can't imagine that the Con would bother messing with this particular election. Every time the alleged conspirators mess with an election they risk getting caught. Why take that risk when there is ZERO potential return?
[We like pointlessly fixing the Diebold machines just for the risk taking THRILL of it.]
we need to bust into and destroy these god damn machines they need to become pieces of garbage to be hauled away
[Are the Diebold machines made of aluminum? You can make some good bucks by selling them for scrap.]
they owe her one for the pimp-slapping of a Capitol Cop
[So now she is pimp-slapping the Diebold machines.]
"punching the cop" is RW spin
[Correct. She was merely "pimp-slapping" the cop.]
I Personally Witnessed ES&S Machines Change Democratic Votes To Republican Votes in early voting in Dallas County Texas. HAVA is the worst thing to happen to America. You can't deny what my eyes saw while working as am election clerk.
[Which you are just now conveniently reporting LONG after the fact.]
Reported It To The Democratic Party - They Did Nothing. I was willing to sign an affidavit. No Takers!
[Translation: Even the Democrats laughed at my bogus claim.]
Only solution -- EVERYBODY MUST BRING A CAMCORDER INTO VOTING BOOTH.
[AND SUBMIT THE RESULTS TO STUPIDVIDEOS.COM.]
GREAT IDEA! I'm going to take one in for the 2006 election vote. Video proof will be shared if I experience any monkey business...
[And when the poll worker forbids you to enter the voting booth with a camcorder that will be your basis to allege vote fraud.]
Can't understand how people put up with this charade of voting - It is so obvious the votes are compromised and yet our JUSTICE DEPT is nowhere in sight. What the hell are we paying their salaries for if our legal eagles won't fly? You'd think even the local police would try to put a stop to this travesty of election fraud. Has anyone filmed a vote switching like is described? Maybe that could be put on local TV for everyone to see before they go vote.
[In Palm Beach County in November 2000, a Democrat official was caught with a Votomatic paper ballot machine and hundreds of blank ballots. He was shown with a sheepish smile on camera after he was caught. Is that good enough for you?]
WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THIS BEFORE THE F*CKING ELECTION DAMN IT!
[Your mental meltdown this November will be FUn to watch!]
There are election reform groups all over the country
challenging these machines. Filing suits. Find one and help them. They need you.
[Bev Harris is just $10 away from filing an election suit.]
With the setup GA uses, you select your votes on the touch screen. The one you've selected is highlighted. When you're done, you get a summary screen of all of your selections. You can then change your selections, or touch the confirm button and submit your ballot. So, did people submit their ballot knowing their selections were not what they intended? Why would they do that? I'm not saying the system isn't very flawed, but I bet this is has more to do with voter confusion, in this case, than any conspiracy.
[Please don't kill this hilarious paranoid voting thread with boring rationality.]
That is the system here. You must approve your choices before you leave, so the chances the votes "changed" are nil and none.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Welcome to November 2006. I don't care how far ahead Dems are in November. the GOP and the electronic voting technology companies WILL NOT let the Dems take either house. Poll sin the fonal days and on election day will show the Dems leading. Exit polls will show the Dems winning. But the final tallies will give the key races to the GOP candidate. We are sooooooooooooooooooooo screwed people.
[You sure are!]
Will these people stop at nothing!?!?! I can't belive it. Sure, winning is great, but to go to these CHEATING lengths to win is UNCALLED for. You have to learn to loose graciously, which is something most Republicans today are totally inept at doing. God Damn.... I'm worried about november. If the Republicans win, I'm gonna know there was some vote tampering, for sure....
[The new standard of vote tampering is that if a Republican wins then that is definite proof of vote fraud.]
