About that Voting Machine Company Tied to Mitt Romney and Bain Capital...

BradBlog: About that Voting Machine Company Tied to Mitt Romney and Bain Capital...

Late last month, Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis at FreePress.org broke the story of the Mitt Romney/Bain Capital investment team involved in H.I.G. Capital which, in July of 2011, completed a "strategic investment" to take over a fair share of the Austin-based e-voting machine company Hart Intercivic.

"Several tanker trucks full of political ink have been spilled on Mitt Romney's tenure as a vulture capitalist at Bain Capital," Bello and Fitrakis wrote. "A more important story, however, is the fact that Bain alumni, now raising big money as Romney bundlers are also in the electronic voting machine business. This appears to be a repeat of the infamous former CEO of Diebold Wally O'Dell, who raised money for Bush while his company supplied voting machines and election management software in the 2004 election."

Yet another reason for a very loud voting boycott.

Thanks for posting.

And another good reason

for outlawing electronic voting of any type nation wide.

The Dems grassroots have asked for DOJ/FBI investigation

lol if they think that will do any good.
Obama is not going to spread the word that the whole system is corrupt.

Here is the Dem request anyway.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Since July of 2011

It's not hard to flip the vote when you have this kind of connection.

here would be the Democrats' dream issue

... the electronic voting machine company Hart Intercivic has posters plastered all over the wall of the offices of the town government where I live in Colorado. Hellooooooooo ? Democrats ?

{ hear the deafening silence when they don't go after this issue }

Doesn't George Soros

Own the Spanish company that will be counting the votes? I thought I heard that somewhere. Either way, no matter how they rig the vote, Obama or Romney is going to win. Talk about a lose/lose...

Tu ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito

Eventually, the sh*t is going to hit the fan, and in a big way. I wish we could hurry that up a bit so the mess is created BEFORE the election!!!
