Long before electronic voting machines emerged as a piece of the controversy surrounding the 2020 elections, liberals made it clear that they suspected them every bit as much as President Donald Trump does now.

In the aftermath of the election in which presumptive potential President-elect Joe Biden has been declared the winner, allegations have been flying from Trump and his campaign that voting machines made by Dominion Voting Systems can be manipulated.

The unproven claims are part of a campaign battle that has included allegations there has been voter fraud in states that include Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as Pennsylvania.


In November 2019, liberal HBO host John Oliver ripped into electronic voting machines on his show, “Last Week Tonight.” A video of his diatribe was posted on YouTube.

Oliver’s ire was directed against Direct Recording Electronic voting machines, which leave no paper trail.

“They are very bad. If something goes wrong with one of them, you would basically never know, because you can’t audit the results. And things have gone wrong,” he said, citing a New Jersey case in which a husband and wife running for seats on a local Democratic committee “were in the unusual position of actually knowing that that was a mistake.”


BJ - they stopped being worried once they were told that the fix was in for Biden. - makes sense.

Were the machines used in the election this year DRE machines, or did they leave a paper trail? I honestly don't know.

The left used to distrust and criticize voting by machine. But as usual they all shut up and fall into line
when the left seems threatened.

The left is threatened in 2020 as they have committed massive cyber theft.

The Dominion machines that has drawn the ire of one former Trump associated nut case were not DRE.

Don't expect the article to say so, because that level of honesty is beyond them.

A dumbassed pretend reporter from John Stewart's Daily Show and the Clobert Report.
Sad thing is that people believe they represent an actual news service.
