First, there was this “alert” sent out by Glenn Beck:

MORE ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES CHANGING ROMNEY VOTES TO OBAMA:
WE LOOKED INTO IT AND HERE’S WHAT A VENDOR TOLD US

That story in The Blaze is based on claims by a grand total of two “witnesses,” neither one of whom would give his/her last name.

And there’s this letter from an RNC lawyer to the Secretaries of State in Ohio, Colorado, North Carolina, Missouri, Kansas and Nevada, claiming that, according to “media and citizen reports,” “voting machines in your states have populated [sic] a vote for Barack Obama when a voter cast his or her ballot for Mitt Romney.”

This is, of course, an old, old propaganda trick—charging your opponent with the very crimes that you yourself have perpetrated, or are planning to commit.

Look for more such stuff in these next days, and after the election.

One Comment to “GOP pre-emptively floats “news” of e-votes flipping FOR OBAMA”

  • No, you dont folks! It was Bush et al that rigged the system in 2004 and stole the show in Ohio. The evidence, which was to be presented to congress never made it because the guy who was going to present it died in a car crash the week before he was to testify (hmmmm). Anyway, the exit polls, statistical analysis and other factors pointed very clearly to voter manipulation by GOPers. So be very careful who you point the finger at, Bucko.
