Anonymous claims to have prevented Karl Rove from hacking/stealing the election.

Interesting story.


Read the letter for your selves.

The hacker network Anonymous claimed in a press release that Republican activist and Fox News anchor, Karl Rove tried to steal votes electronically. According to the group, Rove laid tunnels through voter tracking software intended to switch votes in three states from Obama to Romney during a server crash, essentially stealing the election.

According to the story, Anonymous discovered Rove’s plan months in advance and began coding firewalls to block “kingmakers” from changing votes on Election Day. Networkers working for Rove tested the hack in the days leading up to November 6, while firewalls were disabled. On Election Day (at least by Anonymous’ account) Rove’s “worker bees” made 105 attempts to cross through firewalls, but the hacker network successfully kept them out. They offered specific (albeit coded) details regarding Rove’s attempt, and hinted that more details may appear on Wiki Leaks in the future.

Ohio did experience server problems in Ohio at 11 PM; a problem that occurred around the same time in 2004. Eerily, the press release refers to previously stolen elections. If the allegations are true, it would also explain Rove’s (and for that matter, Romney’s) overwhelming confidence despite evidence Obama would win re-election. Mitt Romney hadn’t even written a concession, and Rove fought against calling the election until after the outage. Certainly, the claim supports Republicans’ absurd confidence.

In October, Anonymous issued a warning to Karl Rove against rigging the election, threatening to turn over information to authorities. In November’s release, they did not mention alerting authorities. Perhaps we’ll hear about this again after the hypothetical “investigation.”

While the claim is unsubstantiated, Anonymous has claimed responsibility for and pulled off impressive computer feats, successfully hacking into highly secure military, government and corporate networks. Capability is not a question, and the group’s doesn’t tend toward public aggrandizement. Perhaps we owe the vigilantes our gratitude and applause; though if Rove is guilty, this is probably the last we’ll hear about it.

I like Anonymous

most the time, but this is Bull Sh*t.

These machine have to interfaced with directly or through direct access to a central hub that is local for tabulation.

This is not something they can hack, these machines DO NOT operate by remote.

They make it seem like ROVE is some genius, expert

Hacker....I want to know who he hired to do this (if it's true) and how he allowed his name to be attatched to it.

for or against Anonymous.Gut just like the government,they should maybe watch what they deem moral,right or wrong.Dangerous slope when so many lives are at stake.Either case of if theey prevented the vampire,Karl Rove from steealing votes or not.I hope the votes there were counted fairly.

Where were they

when Ron Paul was getting votes stolen??

It's easier for Anonymous to

It's easier for Anonymous to intervene when electronic voting machines are involved. NOT with outright thuggery of GOP fascists at state/district conventions like in Missouri, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arizona etc. and the Tampa convention itself like Maine delegates. How do you suppose Anonymous could cause disruptions when GOP was outright stealing legitimate delegates....Let alone stealing votes which is a smaller problem compared to stealing delegates?

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

who/what is anonymous? cool

who/what is anonymous?

cool that they are effing with them.


Anyone can hack under the umbrella term, Anonymous.. and any who have hacked for good should report same, anonymously.

We are all anonymous, if this is how we want to present ourselves...; i mean, think about that. If you go to certain websites and blogs, you can comment, anonymously. As I understand it, this is how the, "group" (which is not really a group), Anonymous became a group.

But, plenty who hack anonymously, have no idea whomever else may be hacking anonymously.

Did that make sense? It did to me.

We had SOME proof, but RNC does not care about Rules n Laws- they just break and then change 'em to suit whomever (not PAUL).


a little known fact...that 9 year old that egged the Berens' car and house in 2004? Anonymous.

Are you serious?
