Is GOP Implying Chavez Fixes U.S. Elections? (Chirolas)
William Chirolas -- World News Trust

Oct. 30, 2006 -- So now the GOP tries to imply their electronic vote theft is really Chvez moving U.S. elections toward those he wants to win?

A Miami Herald story tries to imply electronic voting problems in the United States on Sequoia machines are biased the way Venezuelas Chvez wants the election to go, because one of the manufacturers selling voting machines in the United States, Sequoia, has the same ownership as the company that made the machines used in Venezuelas elections.

Do media folks ever research GOP PR blurbs? President Carter "ok'd" the electronic voting on the "Smartmatic" voting machines -- with extensive documentation of why. Did anyone at the Miami Herald notice that the Venezuelan voting machines have both paper trails and a process that includes audits? The total process was reviewed by international observers -- yet the Miami Herald lets this story get planted with none of the above background.

Perhaps the Miami Herald's print space might be better used discussing why the electronic voting machine company felt it needed a different voting machine -- a machine that met GOP standards for ease of stealing the vote while leaving no trail -- so that Sequoia's electronic voting machines could be competitive, in a GOP sense, with the Diebold machines that the Princeton University video showed were so easy to use to steal elections while leaving no trace of the theft?

2. Maybe then the GOP should have an independent system
audit the "electronic voting machines" ... to check for ability to compromise the vote ...

:evilgrin:

4. I think they're looking for a way to spin their loss
We might end of seeing Republicans who lose their seats try and use this theory as the reason.
