GOP Tech Guru Mike Connell 'High IQ Forrest Gump...At Scene of Every Single Crime' Say Ohio Attorney
<snip>
In the video-taped interview, posted at right (appx. 10 mins), the two attorneys focus specifically on their concerns about GOP operative/IT specialist Connell, who, they allege, has been found to have been "at the scene of the crime" for numerous questionable elections since 2000. Connell's firm was also responsible for creating the RNC email systems used by Karl Rove and others. He is also said to have installed the existing Congressional computer networks for high-security House and Senate committees such as Judiciary and Intelligence.

5. What I have yet to figure out is why our elected Democratic leadership
so enthusiastically voted for, endorsed, promoted and funded electronic voting, run on 'TRADE SECRET,' PROPRIETARY programming code, owned and controlled by corporations with hair-raising ties to the Republican Party and far rightwing causes, with virtually no audit/recount controls--and are still defending it to this day.

Oh, yeah, NOW they say, maybe we oughta someday require a paper trail that should maybe oughta, like, some day, be counted, well maybe 1% of it.

Why? WHY?

I can understand them not knowing about some of the shit Rove was pulling, and even being rather helpless to prevent it.

But they voted FOR, and PROMOTED, the biggest, shuckin jive, fascist/corporate privatization in the history of democracy: The privatization of our VOTE COUNTING!

Unless they're IN ON IT, is the only thing I can come up with. IN ON the forever war. And maybe some of them are/were scared, or just corrupt.

It frackin boggles my mind.

6. They're.In.On.It.
Stop thinking this is the Mets and the Yankees and the Yankees always win.

This is like one big team, some willing to play less than the others (take less $$). Some just sit on the bench and don't want to play (dems).

They own the ball and you're not fielding.

They're complicit. No one is representing you. It's all big business. There is no home team.
