Talk about election fraud! If this is true....

It appears that the company that owns Ohio's new electronic voting machines is owned by Mitt Romney's son, Tagg (you know, "I'd like to punch the president").

This has got to be a huge conflict of interest if true, and the Attorney General is being asked to investigate.

There is a large article in Harper's this month about the

ownership, and absence of security in operation, of voting machines.

This is an issue which has been fermenting for more than a decade, and was highlighted in 2004 by the Ohio exit polls which differed massively from the results that came from the Voting Machines supplied by Diebold, a big Bush supporter and contributor.

A Frontline episode in 2006 or 7 on the 2004 Ohio election and the machines demonstrated that the voting machines could be made to yield any result no matter what the ballots run through it said.

Diebold in Ohio also destroyed the ballots very quickly following the election, much earlier than was legally permissible. Surprisingly, the Bush Justice Department wasn't at all interested in investigating the accusations which were covered well in Ohio, but never reached the National audience. It's that Liberal Media Bias that probably prevented the publicizing of the Ohio accusations.

how can you stop that?
by Roger NC / October 21, 2012 3:43 AM PDT

you can't unless you're going to take the manufacture of voting machines away from private companies.

And if you make it government run, isn't the incumbent party always going to be suspect of the same manipulation?

Don't buy voting machines from the son of one of the candidates.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
