There have been several reports of voting machines in Clark County, Nevada, home to Las Vegas and Harry Reid’s base camp, automatically casting a vote for Harry Reid regardless of who the voter actually selects. One woman, voter Joyce Ferrara, said when she and her husband went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democrat opponent, Senator Harry Reid’s name was already checked. She said her husband had the same experience, as did several other people who were there at the same time. Clark County voting officials deny there are any problems with the machines however, it has been discovered that the voting machines are maintained and serviced by technicians who are members of the Service Employees’ International Union (SEIU).
There are also allegations that Harry Reid’s campaign is handing out food and stickers to people in exchange for a vote for Reid.
SEIU was a staunch supporter of President Obama in 2008. I’m not saying there is any shenanigans going on but White House political director Patrick Gaspard is formerly the SEIU’s top lobbyist, and former SEIU president Andy Stern was the most frequent visitor to the White House last year. It seems there may be a slight conflict of interest there but that’s just my opinion. Maybe Stern was just visiting Gaspard.
The election in Minnesota last year, which Al Franken eventually won after numerous recounts and the discovery of “misplaced ballots” in the trunks of cars, etc., is a shining example of just how seedy things are getting in modern American politics. Al Franken maintained all along that he had actually won the election and he was certain because he knew there were fraudulent ballots out there than would be “found” if necessary. It surprised me that the state actually allowed these “found” ballots to be counted, yet they were and Franken won the election. Is it so far-fetched to believe SEIU could be fixing voting machines in Nevada? Why would any state allow an obviously partisan union to do the maintenance and service on voting machines?
The election this year is going to be extremely interesting, to say the least. It also has the potential to be very frightening. The Obama Justice Department overlooked and dismissed a case of obvious voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party in 2008. Even with videotaped evidence Eric Holder dismissed the case and no action was taken. So why would anyone believe that cases of voter fraud or voting machine tampering would be properly investigated and/or prevented if it will help the Democrats?
I’m not accusing anyone of doing anything illegal. I’m simply presenting the facts as I know them. You can draw your own conclusions. But pay attention to the election in Nevada. As of October 26th, Sharon Angle had a 4 point lead over Harry Reid in the polls. If Harry Reid wins by a huge landslide, something is definitely fishy.
