International observers cite 'concerns' in US presidential election

WASHINGTON: The 2012 US elections were conducted in a "professional manner," but "real concerns" remain, international observers said Wednesday.

"The electoral process enjoys broad public confidence," Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe mission chief Daan Everts said in a statement the day after the vote that saw President Barack Obama win a second four-year term.

"At the same time, there are real concerns over issues such as voting rights, the accuracy of voter lists, the transparency of campaign finance, recount procedures and access for international election observers."

However, eight states, including Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Mississippi, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas, denied OSCE observers access and two more, Alaska and Tennessee, offered only restricted access, which the OSCE refused.

1. It means so much more when an outsider calls your shit!

Thanks to those people for adding a little more fuel to the fire to
get those morons off their ass and get the system straightened out.

I voted and then spent the rest of the day worrying about the
voting machines in Ohio and whether the Ohio and Wisconsin
or Florida people were going to pull some shenanigans.

This seems so corrupt to me but congress seems to think that it's
just the way we do politics!

This is not professional!
