At last! Here's how we can win the election!

--quote--

Foreign Affairs minister Ali Chirao Mwakwere used witchcraft to scare away voters in Matuga constituency during the last General Election, a witness has claimed.

The witness said in a petition affidavit that Mwakwere, who won the Matuga seat on a Narc ticket, planted witchcraft paraphernalia near polling stations on the eve of the voting day.

<snip>

Mwanyoha told Justice David Magara that Mwakweres agents criss-crossed the constituency on the eve of election planting "demonic substances" in polling stations.

He claims the act psychologically traumatised would-be voters who "did not vote with their conscience".

So I guess if we get a bunch of witches to cast spell to discourage Repugs from voting... :)

1. Reminds me of a quote:
"I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican friends... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them." - Adlai Stevenson

2. Beware of snacks, poll watchers told
VIGILANCE. Alertness. Flashlights. And anti-diarrhea tablets.


In Caloocan City, Representative Enrico Echiverri had warned his poll watchers never to eat snacks other than those provided by his camp.

He told the Inquirer he had received information that some groups might provide contaminated snacks in the polling precincts during the counting. After a few minutes, poll watchers and teachers who would eat the snacks would have to go out of the room to go to the toilet, he said.

That would give others an opportunity to tamper, change or snatch ballots or tally sheets, Echiverri added...Erice said he had also provided his watchers flashlights in case of brownouts during the counting. Resorting to intentional brownouts is an old method of cheating, Erice said, adding that during the few minutes of darkness, ballots and boxes could be snatched and replaced....

3. Well, if it wasn't for that silly Threefold Law...
you know, the whole, "whatever you do returns to you threefold". Sorry.
