S.C. Sen. Phil Leventis wants voting machines impounded
A state senator has asked that voting machines be impounded pending an investigation into a statewide Democratic primary where a political novice defeated a political veteran.

Sen. Phil Leventis of Sumter asked the State Election Commission to impound voting machines until after an investigation is conducted. Chris Whitmire, a spokesman for the State Election Commission said no machines will be impounded.

Faulty cast-off electronic voting machines that South Carolina bought from Louisiana may account for what happened in Alvin Greenes victory, Vic Rawl alleged in his protest.

Whitmire, a spokesman for the State Election Commission, said all of the states machines were purchased new from a Nebraska firm in 2004. He said it is possible a handful of machines might have been purchased as replacements by some counties since then.
