With the Christian Science Monitor reporting that a federal court is hearing a complaint today about unauthorized software updates to Ohio's vote-counting software....
Can we finally talk about Republican attempts to steal the election? It is so frustrating for so many people to stick their head in the sand about this issue.
Here are two pieces of evidence from today:
-Counting software. Software updates which can manipulate the vote totals. This code is proprietary, meaning no one outside has looked at the program that the right-wing owned companies who supply the software have written. We are just supposed to take the word of the Ohio Republican SOS?
-Voting machines. Republican-proprietary code runs the voting machines. Hereis vote-flipping that is happening today. On how many machines?
We are seeing registration crimes, voter suppression and intimidation in many forms. Why would they not manipulate vote totals?
9:42 AM PT: Commenter with a good point...Why am I writing this? I want to trigger a discussion, urge everyone to be thinking of how we can counter a possible declaration of unlikely results...such as a Romney landslide victory. How can we organize? Remember what happened in Florida in 2000 with the "Brooks Brothers Riot?"
Another comment: What to do if shenanigans/irregularities are observed. Here is a good diary from a member of Election Protection:
