Back in 2006, they told us that electronic voting machines were going to be an easy, non-transparent way to hijack elections. 

And they were right:

Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.

“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

The conservative website Illinois Review reported that “While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race.

There’s a simple answer, of course:

 “This was a calibration error of the touch-screen on the machine,” Scalzitti said. “When Mr. Moynihan used the touch-screen, it improperly assigned his votes due to improper calibration.”

“I’m not robbing this bank, officer; I’m just doing a bad job of calibrating the safe”.

“That’s not a crack pipe under my seat, officer; its a poorly-calibrated CPAP mask”. 

“Those weren’t dead people voting; just poorly-calibrated living people”. 

I’m not going to say the Democrats are a criminal syndicate.  I’m just wondering how they’d have to behave any differently to be one…

  1. Nobody got arrested. Nobody got convicted. Therefore, there was no voter fraud, regardless of how many tens of thousands of other voters may have experienced the same result. Right, Dog Gone?

  2. . . . but if an unnamed black guy says that he saw a police car parked within a half-mile of a polling place that proves, beyond a doubt, that Republicans are engaging in a widespread conspiracy to suppress minority votes.
    Remember Florida!

  3. This voter fraud stuff is hard…and expensive. Hey, lets just have the machines do it for us!! AND…it solves having to explain the 150% turn out…a win-win!!

  4. The liberal way; bark like a hound with the animal treed when your side is losing out, look the other way when someone else’s ox is being gored. And when someone points out the hypocrisy, argue like h*** that it’s “completely different.”

  5. I heard James O’Keefe on miller’s radio program. O’Keefe is not a lawyer, but he says that what Meredith Hicks said to him (and was captured on tape) “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” amounts a criminal act in Colorado.
    The Motherjones article on the O’Keefe sting mentions only the get-out-the-vote liberal groups who refused to endorse vote stealing:

    Democratic staffers in Colorado recently came to believe they were the subject of an O’Keefe operation after campaign workers became suspicious about would-be volunteers who had asked about filling out and submitting mail-in ballots for others.
