Anonymous claims to have blocked GOP election theft with Ohio firewall
ELECTIONS 2012
NOVEMBER 18, 2012BY: MICHAEL SANTO

Hacktivist group Anonymous has done some good things and some bad things. It all depends on your point of view. Now the group has come forward and said they are the reason that Karl Rove nearly went apoplectic on Fox News on Nov. 6, Election Night 2012.

Thom Hartmann reported the claim on his radio show on Friday, which is simulcast on Current TV (video of the Current TV broadcast is embedded). Of course, Anonymous has claimed things in the past which later turned out to be false, but as Hartmann said: "it makes sense."

Republican strategist Karl Rove seemed incredibly surprised when the results came back from Ohio. It wasn't just the surprise that Mitt Romney exuded -- he reportedly had no concession speech written -- it was genuine amazement.

As Hartmann, noted, in the book "Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove's Secret Kingdom of Power," author Craig Unger documented how in the 2004 election, "the Ohio vote was counted in Ohio, at 11:13 p.m. at night, the entire Ohio voting system crashed ... a minute later they came up. In that minute, all the votes had been re-routed through a server system in Tennesee, and so all the vote totals flowed back into the system in Ohio, and John Kerry lost, even though the exit polls showed him winning."

So why didn't Ohio go for Romney in 2012?

Curiously enough, the Ohio Secretary of State's vote tabulation website went down at 11:13 p.m. Rove even mentioned it on the air.


Coincidence? Possibly...
