I’ve never understood “Why Bother to Vote” … until now

They had to steal elections the old fashioned way back in 1915

Rolling Stone has an article by Robert F. Kennedy Jr titled Will the Next Election be Hacked?  It also makes a pretty compelling case that our last election was hacked.

Much of this hinges on Diebold employee Chris Hood who says (in part) “We ran the election. We had 356 people that Diebold brought into the state. Diebold opened and closed the polls and tabulated the votes. Diebold convinced Cox that it would be best if the company ran everything due to the time constraints, and in the interest of a trouble-free election, she let us do it.”

Then, one muggy day in mid-August, Hood was surprised to see the president of Diebold’s election unit, Bob Urosevich, arrive in Georgia from his headquarters in Texas. With the primaries looming, Urosevich was personally distributing a “patch,” a little piece of software designed to correct glitches in the computer program. “We were told that it was intended to fix the clock in the system, which it didn’t do,” Hood says. “The curious thing is the very swift, covert way this was done.”

Georgia law mandates that any change made in voting machines be certified by the state. But thanks to Cox’s agreement with Diebold, the company was essentially allowed to certify itself. “It was an unauthorized patch, and they were trying to keep it secret from the state,” Hood told me. “We were told not to talk to county personnel about it. I received instructions directly from Urosevich. It was very unusual that a president of the company would give an order like that and be involved at that level.

At some point, this crap has to stop. I for one have had more than enough of black-ops style antics in American politics. I call for a grand jury investigation because this is a hell of a lot more serious than a president diddling an intern.

I found this photo called 1915 by Mike Welfl in a search and it was so cool that I don’t even care if it has nothing to do with the subject.
