Can someone answer me about the NH recount?Submitted by timwatly on Wed, 01/30/2008 - 11:49
People are saying the recount for kucinich matched the results, so I just have a couple questions.
Why is it the recount has taken over 15 days, and still isn't anywhere close to completion?
Why after starting the republican recount on thursday of last week(mind you after taking a 3 day weekend and then not counting on tuesday or wednesday of last week), did they need to take a break this week?
Why was it both kucinich and albert howard are not allowed to look at the poll books (a very fundamental important aspect of a recount)?
Why is it the memory cards have gone missing as early as 4 days after an election?
Why is it the secretary of state had a press conference to show he was putting the ballots in a vault overnight, but then every night since this has no longer put them in the vault? They are out in the open of a building?
Why is it that the boxes are being transported by guys named butch and hoppy, and not the police (as stated in NH law)?
Why is it the boxes were showing up damaged with slits and even open as they were leaving the white van?
Why is the "seals" are actually just removable that give the illusion of security but meanwhile do nothing?
If you had machines rig an election but there was a paper ballot trail:
First you would want to try to make sure a recount didn't happen. Remember the funds got frozen?
Then you lose the evidence of ballot tampering, ie misplace hundreds of memory cards.
Then you would need lots of time to back into each precincts ballot box and add in some fake ballots to make it look legit. Thus take days and days to start the recount.
Then you would make sure those doing the recount couldn't look at the poll logs to confirm that maybe extra people didn't vote.
Did i leave anything out?
I am sure all these anomolies will be better explained as that I am a crazy conspiracy theorist.
