Tagg Romney’s not the only fishy player who owns a piece of the computerized election-stealing system.

All the players atop that system are suspicious characters—as that whole system is itself a crime against democracy, and those who still refuse to face that fact are as complicit as Karl Rove himself.

But do let’s start by looking carefully at Romney’s ties to the vote-counting apparatus.

Subj: DOJ: Investigate Ohio voting machines owned by Tagg Romney

Below is an email from Alea Bankston, a MoveOn member in Louisville, Kentucky, who created a petition on SignOn.org, the nonprofit site that allows anyone to start their own online petition. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.

Dear MoveOn member,

According to an article on PoliticolNews.com, Mitt Romney’s son, Tagg, is a major investor in Hart InterCivic, the company that owns electronic voting machines that will be used in Ohio for this election.1 The article also alleges that these machines are easily hacked. Not to mention it’s an obvious conflict of interest.

That’s why I created a petition on SignOn.org to U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder and President Obama to get the Department of Justice to initiate an investigation into this issue before Election Day on November 6, 2012.

The petition says:

Ensure that the election is not stolen and that the results are not tampered with or altered: Investigate voting machines owned by Tagg Romney.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

This petition was created on SignOn.org, the progressive, nonprofit petition site. SignOn.org is sponsored by MoveOn Civic Action, which is not responsible for the contents of this or other petitions posted on the site. Alea Bankston didn’t pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.
