UPDATED: Suspicion of Election Rigging in the 2012 Presidential Primary (with extra graphs)Submitted by Dr.K.Research on Mon, 07/02/2012 - 08:44
UPDATED to include info on rigging against delegates, parameters of the lawsuit, and what a "normal" election should look like:
Throughout the entire 2012 presidential campaign there have arisen incidents of irregularities in the vote count. This has occurred so commonly that suspicion of malicious rigging has been proposed. This would indicate the possibility that there is intentional manipulation/alteration of the vote count for political gain.
Hard evidence for such rigging is often difficult to procure. This is a result of the nature of the voting process in America, which is largely computerized or electronic. Sensibly, since the electronic processes are devoid of receipts—devoid of any clear paper trail—proving intentional vote rigging is cumbersome to say the least.
In fact, in this presidential primary there is sound reason to suspect malicious intent. It all began in Iowa, when the normally transparent voting process was compromised by the local GOP itself by dispensing with the requirement for voting ID. It was the Iowa Republican Party’s which exclusively made this decision, which accordingly sets its own rules for the caucuses. This includes counting its own votes, while announcing the results to the media exclusively.
As if to raise suspicions further the Iowa GOP then announced it would count all votes in an undisclosed secret location, without any independent monitoring.
Sure these acts are suspect, especially when added to the comments of Fox News’ and Iowa GOP insider Dee Dee Benke, who said at the height of the caucuses, quoting Iowa's top GOP organizers, “there will never be a Ron Paul win we will see to that.”
Yet, it wasn't just Ron Paul votes, which were rigged. In fact, rigging was also committed against Rick Santorum and even possibly Michelle Bachmann, along with Rick Perry. In all cases the rigged results favored Romney. Remember, Romney falsely won both Iowa and Maine. However, in general Ron Paul was the greatest victim of this corruption.
