‘I Voted?’ documentary details Alvin Greene fiasco, electronic voting machines

I've never heard a thorough analysis of how Greene won the SC Democratic Senate primary and now there's a documentary in production and seeking to provide answers.

When Alvin Greene won a primary election in June 2010, it wasn’t just us Palmetto State people who were surprised as hell.

The shock that an unemployed, non-honorably discharged veteran awaiting trial for obscenity charges could somehow beat a well-known political figure, and without having done any type of campaigning, shook from coast to coast – including the West Coast home of Jason Grant Smith.

2. Unfortunately, nothing will be done as

the machines are working as intended. Gas pumps, ATM's, postal kiosks, all work pretty accurately, year round, and even give receipts. EVM's on the other hand...reliability nightmares, flipping votes, no receipt..etc. Coincident design "flaws" endemic to machines from different manufacturers, or intentional design "features" to compromise the vote when needed? You decide.

7. Maybe the election

of a black man with no financial resources, will be the impetus for the GOP to allow any questioning of their GOP owned EVM's. It looks like they were bitten in the ass....#2 pencil anyone?

9. Sadly true-- there are just too many problems

 

And there is not enough urgency for this one.

4. I can't wait to see this one.

Anybody laboring under the impression that electronic vote fraud can't or never has happened should really look into the Alvin Greene case.

This looks like a really thoughtful and well produced doc.

6. The Alvin Greene fiasco is the shinning example of vote rigging

There is NO other possible explanation. But that didn't stop all those reporters from the corporate media (and people who like to repeat nonsense) from spewing out the most ridiculous theories in the history of voting. Look at how David Axelrod hmms and haws around because he knows the answer but he doesn't want to say "vote rigging" out loud. And what is really very sad? Is that the Democratic party was the one that was injured by this rigging and they all backed down and did nothing about it.

Watch at 1:44 when Conway Belanga, Director of Elections Greenville County, SC shows how to cast your vote. He presses the top button and the button underneath lights up. He couldn't even do a demonstration on the rigged voting machines that actually worked.

8. One of the early theories was that Dems liked the look of Greene name.

Voters aren't that stupid.

10. and others theorized that it was black voters voting for a black name

Like this "Alvin Greene" made them think of Al Green. Stupid theory, though, since his opponent was Rawl (Lou Rawls). And a well-known African-American in another statewide race (for gov) came in third --
