Glitches and Conspiracy Theorists. That's how FRAUD IS BEING REPORTED!
http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/news/local/states/...

NOTICE how they don't report the FACT that only Democratic votes are being compromised, even though that's what is reported. EXPLAIN THAT as a "glitch"!

Glitches cited in early voting
Early voters are urged to cast their ballots with care following scattered reports of problems with heavily used machines.
<snip>
Debra A. Reed voted with her boss on Wednesday at African-American Research Library and Cultural Center near Fort Lauderdale. Her vote went smoothly, but boss Gary Rudolf called her over to look at what was happening on his machine. He touched the screen for gubernatorial candidate Jim Davis, a Democrat, but the review screen repeatedly registered the Republican, Charlie Crist.

That's exactly the kind of problem that sends conspiracy theorists into high gear -- especially in South Florida, where a history of problems at the polls have made voters particularly skittish.
<snip>

Joan Marek, 60, a Democrat from Hollywood, was also stunned to see Charlie Crist on her ballot review page after voting on Thursday. <snip>

Marek corrected her ballot and alerted poll workers at the Hollywood satellite courthouse, who she said told her they'd had previous problems with the same machine.

Poll workers did some work on her machine when she finished voting, Marek said. But no report was made to the Supervisor of Elections office and the machine was not removed, Cooney said.
<snip>
Mauricio Raponi wanted to vote for Democrats across the board at the Lemon City Library in Miami on Thursday. But each time he hit the button next to the candidate, the Republican choice showed up. Raponi, 53, persevered until the machine worked. Then he alerted a poll worker.

4. I sent the reporter a short e-mail:


"What wrong with all these conspiracy theorists?
Most rational people know glitches almost always vote Republican."

6. Most elected Dems don't give a fuck
In NYS, for instance, Spitz, Hill, and Chuck all think Diebold is to die for. My Dem election inspector thinks the same think (she loves diebold).

So tell it to the greens at greenunderground.com or a liberalprogressive.

Short of the black and the progressive caucus, no one on our team gives a fuck about voter fraud.

7. What else do you expect from their media? They're trying to stop us.
Don't. Vote. Tell everyone you know to vote. Give them a ride. Document everything suspicious, preferably in video.
