    How I rigged the Democrats' vote​

    By: Cindy Blake



    THE world has watched the American Presidential election with mounting disbelief as tales of incompetence and skullduggery have emerged. None of these electoral misdeeds have surprised me - but I am puzzled that they have taken this long to be uncovered. I know they occur: I fixed an election myself.

    In 1976, I was a campaign worker for Jimmy Carter and during the Democratic primaries, I was sent to Pennsylvania for a day to help out in any way I could. The night before the election, I was told I would be a poll-watcher in a district in South Philadelphia. I had no idea what this entailed but it was explained that I would be at a polling station to ensure that the process went legally and smoothly.

    South Philly, a heavily Italian district, was a stronghold of Carter's opponent in the primary, Henry "Scoop" Jackson, an old-guard Democrat with strong links to the labor unions and with Philadephia's Italian-American Mayor Rizzo in his camp. The Carter consensus was that Jackson would win easily in South Philly, but I was there to make sure he did so lawfully. "Check the back of the machine as soon as you get there," I was advised. "Make sure there are no votes registered on it before the place has opened."

    This shocked me. Every time a vote is cast, the back of the voting machine records it on what looks like a car mileage gauge, so at the end of the day the poll supervisors know how many people have voted. If the gauge registered a number of votes before the poll had opened, someone would have to have rigged the machine. Not only was this profoundly un-American, I couldn't believe it could happen in 1976.

    Yes, I'd say that Cindy was naive then, just as Cindy Sheehan was used, abused and now ignored by the Progressive Socialists.

    Speaking of Cindys, has anyone seen how Obama is treating the parents of Woods and Smith since they have spoken out about his abandoning the people in Benghazi. Oh how the Democrats applauded Cindy Sheenhan for her warped sense of reasoning and naked use of her son's death to further he political career.

    Is this thread an acknowledgement that you believe Romney will lose the election?

    I was once a poll watcher in Iraq, I was ordered to castrate anyone on the spot that did not vote for Saddam Hussein.
