1. "This is not a case of extra votes being discovered. This is human error for which I apologize."
"Accidental database error", for which the County Clerk apologizes.

Cheezitz. Cheezitz.

2. Databases don't make mistakes
That's like saying your calculator can't add 1+2 correctly

8. She could be telling the truth...as in the database was fucked with?
Who is going to believe this?

No one. Fucking BLACK BOXES casts doubt on everything

Claiming to have made a mistake in saving the data may be true but it isn't going to satisfy ANYONE.

This will lead to trouble.

9. "THEY HAVE MACROS IN THE PROGRAMS. I don't know what it is."
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 06:11 PM by leveymg
That was the response of the County Clerk to the question about whether it was "human error", as she's been claiming, or the software.

11. She also referenced "saving" the file in Access... um, there's no "save" in Access.

She is full of SHIT!

17. It sounds to me like she's a deer staring at the headlights of a very large truck she doesn't under-
stand. That is the same for the woman identified as the local Democratic election protection person who signed off on this.

21. That was the case in Florida, also. It's the network Presidents who decide whether this gets shown

to the rest of America.

Probably not, if experience is any guide.

16. Notice how Nicklaus almost pushed the Democratic canvass rep away from the mic
when the woman was being asked more questions from the press.

19. If those elderly women in the background are the representatives of
each party that witness the vote counts, I am not inspired. Not wanting to pre-judge these ladies, I would simply ask if the Dem representative has any training in the computer programs used to tally and report the votes. The GOP clerk at the podium continues to insist that she simply made an error on a spreadsheet program and did not report the town in question. My question is does the Dem representative at the news conference have any knowledge of spreadsheets and such.

24. Even if she does understand...did she watch the correction be made?
Just because a person has gray hair doesn't mean they didn't learn about spreadsheets 25-30 years ago. Spreadsheet programs have been around for a long long time.

26. You are absolutely correct about that!
For all I know, the woman has a Phd in computer software. The point is that interviewing this woman would be a logical first step to make sense of what may or may not have happened.

23. Easily done
Simply move votes from one column to another. The total of votes cast remains the same. Several election integrity advocates have shown how easily this is done.
