Diebold Cleared of All Charges

OK, they weren't actually brought up on any for the performance of their voting machines. But that's the point. Democrats were all prepared with their lawyers should they not win where they thought they should. But they won, so there were suddenly no voting irregularities. An extended family member of mine sent this along. He's not all that into politics by his own admission, but this really made an impression on him. This is a short letter to the editor at the Cincinnati Enquirer.

With the recent incredibly close and important election results in the senatorial races, I have not heard the tremendous whining and wild claims of fraud, voter intimidation, voting machine failures, etc.

Does that mean that America has solved all of its vast voting issues, or that the Democrats won this time?

I'd add, does that mean that we won't hear of any problems even when Republicans win in the future?

My sister pointed out that George Allen proved what a good sport he is by not calling for a recount in his razor-thin loss to Jim Webb. Would that more politicians (and party machinery) were like that.

Trackback Pings


Actually there were plenty of voting irregularities. There was a lot of suspicious activity in Florida, again. There was a candidate for mayor in Arkansas who didn't receive a single vote, despite voting for himself and receiving votes from several friends. Just because Democrats are too stupid to press the issue doesn't mean there weren't voting problems.

Is this really an issue of intelligence? If so, are you saying that Democrats have gotten really stupid in the last 2 years?

Of course you're not, but it make good blog comment copy.

No election goes without problems. Not suggesting that. What I'm noting is that Democratss are convinced that the Diebold folks are in cahouts with the Republicans, and make loud noises about it to the media, when they lose. However, when they win, not hardly a peep.

Odd that. Makes the pre-election prediction of "either we win or Republicans cheated" sound prescient, and makes Democrats sound very unserious about the whole thing.

Anyone who knows there are multiple problems with voting machines and doesn't press the issue just because they won an election is, if not stupid, then certainly incredibly short-sighted.
