Early voting is underway in many parts of the country, and voters are already alleging fraud: “Saturday, KFDM spoke to another voter who says it’s not just happening with straight ticket voting, he says it’s happening on individual races as well, Jerry Stopher told us when he voted for a Democrat, the Republican’s name was highlighted.”


KFDM, Beaumont, Texas (from Crooks and Liars):

Early voting runs through Friday, November 3rd.

KFDM continues to get complaints from Jefferson County voters who say the electronic voting machines are not registering their votes correctly.
Friday night, KFDM reported about people who had cast straight Democratic ticket ballots, but the touch-screen machines indicated they had voted a straight Republican ticket.

Some of those voters including Lamar University professor, Dr. Bruce Drury, believe the problem is a programming error.

Saturday, KFDM spoke to another voter who says it’s not just happening with straight ticket voting, he says it’s happening on individual races as well, Jerry Stopher told us when he voted for a Democrat, the Republican’s name was highlighted.

The fact is that every polling place in america today is a crime scene. And the crime is not election fraud per se-it’s one big crime, all of one piece best deemed TREASON. It goes back to the original election theft, PNAC 911 conspiracy to commit war crimes. The networks shall be on the arrest warrant, as shall be all the klan preachers in their mega-covens, and the corporations who have been part of the psy-ops, bullying of the citizenry, etc.
This is a crime that must be dealt with today, it’s daily murder and torture. There are a whole hell of a lot of fat old white billionaire suspects.
Bring a black cop with such an arrest warrant to your polling place and shut it down. Election my ass-it’s just another ozzfest from rabid boy george.
