23. Let's point out some of Bernie's inaccuracies....
I want to ask where do you think you get off blasting someone else for this story when you are obviously a very inaccurate reporter?

For one thing, the "aggrieved voters" DO IN FACT have listed phone numbers. Did you even check? They weren't hard to find.

For another, as mentioned in the article-- one of the voters made the election officials aware of the problem he was having before he finished voting. Furthermore, when the Election Office was contacted, they did not deny the incidents happened. They blamed it on voter error, but they did not deny it. And technicians were called in to assess the problem, which they confirmed to be legitimate, which was also mentioned, among other places, in an article in the Greenville Sun newspaper---where similar incidents were found to have happened.

Finally, the election commissioner that you refer to IS NOT the son-in-law of the newspaper's publisher. For that matter, you obviously fail to realize that many people in small towns are related to each other. If the accuracy of reporting rested in no one being related to anyone else involved, there would be no news in a rural community. It makes no difference who the voters or commissioners are related to. That does not make the story false.

The entire point of the article is not that Republicans have been disenfranchised in some way. The point of the story is that voters---Republican and Democrat--- should be careful when they are voting to ensure they are voting for whom they intended.

Seems to me like your debunking has been debunked.

Next time, try checking your facts. Just because one slimy and stupid Democrat told you something does not make it true. And just because a Republican said it doesn't make it false.
