The Ongoing Diebold Saga

There is fresh evidence that has come to light with regards to the rigging of Diebold voting machines. These machines, which are used nationwide have come to the attention of critics for the surprising results they yielded which contradicted in many cases, the polls held just a few weeks earlier.

A whistle blower has come forward with a claim that a patch was fitted to Diebold machines specifically in Georgia, where Georgia Secretary of State Cathy Cox requested information from Diebold about an ‘0808 patch’ that was installed on Diebold machines prior to voting in 2002.

Cox did not know that a patch had been installed and The Raw Story’s source says that Diebold workers were told to keep the information from Cox. The most astonishing thing:

What initially raised questions, according to the source, was the behavior of then-Diebold CEO, Bob Urosevich, who personally flew in from Texas and applied the patch in just two counties, DeKalb and Fulton, both Democratic strongholds.

For those who have forgotten the upsets in Georgia: Incumbent Democratic Sen. Max Cleland, who was five percentage points ahead of Republican challenger Saxby Chambliss in polls taken only a week before the voting, lost 53 percent to 46 percent. Roy Barnes, the incumbent Democratic Governor, who had been leading challenger Sonny Perdue by a fairly wide margin of eleven points, lost 51 percent to 46 percent.

Voter Fraud by Republicans?

Yes Sir.
